6 Simple Rules that must be followed on Mother’s Day.
Rule 1: Sleep
Any amount of extra, un-interrupted, cozy sleep goes a long way with mom. Once she wakes the party is on! Time to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Rule 2: Plan
Ideally, this would be a day that was already planned and included activities that mom loves. It is always a great day when Mom gets to sit back and not have to worry about all of the planning, scheduling, and coordinating of events. If a foot rub is included in the plan, even better.
Rule 3: Food
Feed her! Bless her heart. She’s always the one who is meal planning, making reservations, cooking, & cleaning up. If you decide to make her breakfast in bed a great plan, please do not leave her with the mess to clean up. A better option would be reservations.
Rule 4: No Large Appliances
Any and all large household appliances are banned on Mother’s Day. Mom cannot, operate any. No cleaning, no laundry, no loading or emptying the dishwasher, no vacuuming, no ovens, etc. If this occurs Mom must go back to bed because clearly she’s not thinking.
Rule 5: Clean up
Don’t make mom clean up after you. Every other day of the year Mom picks up all the messes. On Mother’s Day pick up your own mess or don’t make one.
Rule 6: Shower her
Shower mom in hugs, kisses and big thank you’s! Some times the best gifts are the hugs & kisses from her family!
How will you celebrate Mother’s Day?
