What Do Moms Really Want For Mother's Day

May 6, 2016
Mothers Day


This is a PSA, and mostly for the hubbies.  Like an (untrained) investigative reporter, I have been asking random moms, "What do you REALLY want?"

The answers will not surprise any of you.  While we all appreciate those sweet little drawings, and burnt toast in bed, what we really want is a break from...being a mom.

1.  Sleep.  

What Moms want for mothers day

A night in a hotel?  The guest room with Netflix and no baby monitor?  Go wild guys, the world is your oyster.  

2. A Cleaning Lady

My friend Leah made this recommendation and, YES!  A couple of weeks (or forever) of a cleaning lady is the gift that keeps on giving!

3. No meal prep.

Let's just go ahead and eat out for every meal that day, or even just one.  For the others?  Dads, you make that kitchen shine.  She deserves it.

4.  Everyone doing chores without whining.

Sorry sweetheart, but I doubt this magical interlude is in the works, but maybe next year?

5.  Spa. 

Several ladies said that this is the gift that they LOVE.  Me time and pampering (preferably with wine).

6. A kid-free day. 

I had this for one Mother's Day, and it was magical.  

7.  A surprise date with the hubby. 

 A couple of ladies thought that a date (totally planned by the hubs) would be an amazing surprise.  I agree.

8.  A girls' night. 

Talk to some of the besties hubbies and plan a surprise ladies night.  You will appreciate it at the end of the night, trust me.



Share this with your life-mate ladies, and if he makes it happen, tell me.  Get what you really want- a break.  You deserve it.
