Is it just me or did Mothers day really sneak up on us? I have never been one to schedule holidays or birthday reminders in my phone or mark down special events to make sure I remember them, so every year, a week before Mothers Day (or Valentines day!) I am scrambling, I hate that! It is so not indicative of my appreciation and love for my mom, because she is the best! She bends over backwards to make sure everyone around her it taken care of, loved, and supported before she even thinks about what she wants.
Any gift, be it big or small, would of course only be a small token of gratitude for the amazing job my mom ( and so many other moms do for their kids) did raising me and my siblings. My mom is a nurse, and when all five of us were under the age of 6, she would work the night shift in labor and delivery so she could be around during the day. Now that I think about it, I wonder when she slept? See!? Moms are like super heros! She and my dad sacrificed everything so that we could play sports (which are $$$, and for 5 kids), go to camp, have fun with friends here and there, go to college, and the list goes on!
Soooo, hurry up and order one of these gifts she most likely wouldn't buy for herself or simply write a nice note to let her know you appreciate her. I included gifts you can go in on with another sibling or two, or three, or four, as well as a couple smaller cost items. But don't be too cheap, remember she wiped your booty for 2 if not 3 years...unless you're one of those advanced babies that learned when they were newborns to go on the potty...regardless you owe it to her! I'd love to know in the comments below what you're doing to celebrate your moms. Have a great week guys!
