2. A Nap. Mothers of younger children lose a lot of sleep ya'll. I can't tell you one mom I know that gets a full 8 hours ... ever. We are literally tired 100% of the time. If you say, "honey, go to take nap. I've got the kids." You might just be our favorite person in the entire world.
3. Someone else to clean the house. That's right. Tidy up while we're taking that nap and you will get some serious extra brownie points.
4. All meals cooked for them. One thing that I know is prevalent in my household is the fact that I plan/cook every single meal. If I don't do this my family doesn't eat. I am not even kidding. Someone else taking over on that front would be literal Heaven for so many of us. Even if it's takeout for all three meals. If we do not have to make the decision on what it is we are eating, where it comes from, or how it's getting to the dinner table it would be like going on a mini vacation with a personal chef.
5. Those cute little Mother's Day gifts the kids make at school. Those are really sweet. I think every mom looks forward to those and cherishes them as their children grow.
3. Nothing at all. Say what?! I was really surprised to see the amount of mothers out there that were not recognized in any way at all on Mother's Day. I'm not sure where these kids, significant others, or partners in baby making are but Knock! Knock! , this woman is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders. The very least you could do is say Happy Mother's Day to her.
4. I came across a lot of unusual gifts as well ... that I absolutely loved! Like these sculptures of a cat and turtle, this Disney wall art, and I even saw a Mother of Dragons plaque and some other really cool stuff. I am sure no mom was complaining about these super cute gifts.
Don't forget if you're a mom that might be feeling a tad (or a ton) overwhelmed to grab one of my FREE "I Need a Flucking Break " packets for a much needed moment of peace.
Until next time!
