5 Thoughtful, Budget-Friendly Mother's Day Ideas
1. Clean the HouseClean the house from top to bottom without involving her. There are days I really feel like I'm a live-in, volunteer janitor. One weekend day where I have nothing I have to do around the house would be utterly sublime!
2. Make Her Favorite MealThere is no need to scramble to get reservations and face the hustle and bustle of restaurants. There are plenty of less busy days of the year to try and pull a toddler from out under the table! Dining at home and not having to make it or clean up afterwards is SUCH a nice treat!
3. Plan a Day to Play TouristThis one may cost the price of parking, but pack up the kids, pack a lunch and walk around the hot-spots in your city. It is a wonderful opportunity to get present and enjoy your family as well as appreciate the beautiful city you live in.
4. Rest and RelaxationLet mom leave the house sans kids, or take the kids out of the house to give Mom some R&R. It is such a simple act, but being in a silent house with no one to care for or driving without having to reach for fallen sippy cups while referreeing sibling rivlary is almost as great as a spa day. I kid you not.
5. Set a Calming AtmosphereWhen the kids are asleep or preoccupied, pour mom a nice cup of tea (or her beverage of choice!), set up candles, run a bath, and let her be. I cannot tell you the last time I crawled into a bath without exuberant spectators adding to the bath or wanting to be added themselves. Just the idea of a warm bath, some candle light, and some time to myself has me smiling. There is no denying, motherhood has been the greatest gift in my life. Getting a little R&R in as a sign of thanks is really the icing on the cake.
