For newbie dad’s out there planning something special for Mother’s Day or for those of you who are trying to make improvements; here are the secrets to getting it right! If there is a step mom involved in your children’s lives, this is for her too!
#1 – Buy her flowers and not just any flowers, the ones she likes. If you don’t know which flowers and colors are her favorites; you should, so find out before the big day.
#2 – Do something you don’t typically do. Consider getting up early and tidying up before she wakes – that’s always a great way to start the day.
#3 – Together with the kids, plan something special like breakfast in bed, a picnic or other family outing she would enjoy. If you have very young children; it’s up to you to come up with a plan on their behalf. Note: Do not ask mom to organize it.
#4 – Help the younger children and remind the older ones to make or purchase a card or gift that imparts how much she means to them.
#5 -If you and the kids make her breakfast, brunch or lunch (or order in) make sure it’s not mom doing the post celebration clean-up.
If you follow these five basic universal rules you are sure to make Mother’s Day a happy, meaningful, and memorable day for the woman who gave you the greatest gift of all – knowing your children have a wonderful mother.
