Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we had a hunch that not every mama wants to celebrate the same way. So, we asked our community what they REALLY want for Mother’s Day this year.
Here’s what they said!
“I want a sweet handmade card from the preschooler, for the 8 year old to unload the dishes from the dishwasher, and for the baby to sleep through the night.”
“A dark hotel room with uninterrupted sleep and room service! By myself!”
“A weekend away while my family organizes the house and then has a maid deep clean it.”
“A day spent with my family doing something fun (park, museum, etc.) followed by dinner at my favourite Indian or Mexican restaurant.”
“A deep cleaning by a professional service while we eat out and go to movies, so as to not make dishes.”
“Sleep, a clean house, and to watch a movie without a child climbing on me.”

“A bathroom door. I know it sounds gross but we’ve had a dark curtain hanging up for privacy since we’ve been redoing our house for an eternity.”
“A day where my kids don’t fight or give me attitude.”
“A ring with my daughter’s birthstone!”
“I’m not particular, I just want something and I want someone else to think of and facilitate it.”
“Sleep. Truckloads of sleep.”
“Deep clean of my house and car, while I lock myself in my room and binge watch Netflix all day.”

“A deep bathtub that never changes temperature and body hair that remedies itself.”
“Hugs from my kiddos, a day without fighting, and a break from cooking.”
“A spa day or a day of doing absolutely nothing at home. Or a day of my kids not screaming. Scratch that, ONE HOUR of my kids not screaming.”
We can totally relate to these ideas… especially the ones about SLEEPING. 😉
Also, don’t forget to let your family know what’s on your wish list for Mother’s Day this year. While it would be amazing if they could read your mind, being 100% up front with what you want is the best way to make sure it happens.
So, what do YOU want for Mother’s Day?
