Mother’s Day. The one day a year we take the time to celebrate moms. Can I just say I hate these kinds of holidays?! Moms should be celebrated every day. Same for dads.
Anyway, I was going to write about what I really want for Mother’s Day in a lovely sinfully bad grammar post, but Andrea from Selfies to Selfless said it best so here is the link to her post:
Did you get to read it? No? I’ll wait…la di da di da.
Done? Is she so right, moms? On Mother’s Day I like not to be mommy-ing. I would LOVE a good 5-hour nap. I also want not to be mommy-ing for my birthday, Christmas, Valentine’s Day!
Besides that one gift here are some other things that I might like for lovely Mother’s Day.
1. A “thank you” from my 4-year old for being the BEST MOM EVER. I remember one time my son said “Thanks for the meatballs. They are great (thumbs up!). I was elated…that Trader Joe’s made such wonderful microwavable meatballs for under 2 minutes and I get to take the credit for it.
2. A professional cleaning service for my messy apartment. I don’t even want to get into it. Ever wonder why I never post pictures of my work space?
3. While we’re at it, I would also love a professional organization person to come organize my house. What are those people called? Google tells me they are called professional organizer. Duh!
4. A massage once a month for the rest of my life. I realized I start sitting and sleeping in all weird positions after having kids. Care to see all the wonderful sleeping position you might encounter or have encountered if you sleep with your kid? Check this diagramfrom How To Be A Dad. If you haven’t check this website out you should. Here is a great post about transforming the toddler car into a cool car. Or this Universal Child Birth Reaction Assessment.
5. Maybe flowers and a card. Ok. I admit it! I will take some flowers and a card. I’m a sucker for cards. I really just want a day off from mommy-ing and a card.
Here are two Mother’s Day cards I designed for you to download to give your mom/wife who loves cards as much as I do.
Mother’s day is around the corner. On this day you might take mom out to brunch, buy her some flowers and give her a card. Wait! That’s what you did last year for mommy-dearest! Why not do something different and give her something she’ll love and will benefit her for years to come.

Here are some great gift ideas that will make mom happy. Click on the images for more detail and prices.
1. Dry Skin Brushing Set
Dry skin brushing is a popular way to exfoliate the skin while also relieving stress and anxiety. We all know that mommies are always under stress.
The ultimate exercise for anyone interested in natural health remedies is yoga. Take a look at some of these yoga products and gift sets. The mat is not your typical yoga mat. It is actually a yoga mat and towel. There are lots of different designs and each one is beautiful. Definitely makes you want to do yoga all the time.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! What does your ideal Mother’s Day look like? Share in the comment what you did on Mother’s Day and if you got any cute gift from the kid(s)!
