What Moms Really Want for Mother’s Day

What Moms Really Want for Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is around the corner and there are aisles full of colorful and bright greeting cards. I have a confession – I dislike greeting cards as much as I loathe picking one out for somebody. There are too many options and for the most part they are overpriced. I usually purchase a card that plays music just so I feel like I got my money’s worth. 

There are a many other things that I really want for Mother’s Day and the harsh reality is that a manufactured overpriced greeting card isn’t at the top of the list. Of course, I love anything that my children and husband give me and I will humbly accept any greeting card with a smile on my face. What I really love are the homemade and handwritten notes or artwork that my kids make. Before you go out and spend a lot of money and spend a lot of time thinking on the perfect gift for Mom, keep it simple and refer to a list of activities or gifts that most moms would love to have. 

What Moms Really Want for Mother’s Day 

  1. A Nap or a good night’s sleep
  2. A back rub
  3. A Hug or pat on the back for a Job-well done.
  4. A nice, warm bath or shower where I can actually shave my legs
  5. The ability to watch a movie in it’s entirety or a trip to the movie theatre to watch a chick flick
  6. A delicious meal cooked by someone other than myself
  7. A pedicure or better yet, a trip to the Spa
  8. 30 minutes of silence to mediate and simply hear my thoughts
  9. A haircut
  10. A bottle of my favorite wine
  11. A sneak peak preview to watch Magic Mike XXL. (he he) 
  12. A maid to clean the house and clean it well
  13. A homemade or handwritten card, poster or piece of art from my family
  14. Time to cuddle and snuggle with my loved ones and not feel guilty about it because the dishes are mounting. 
  15. A happy and healthy household 
  16. A fancy Starbucks drink
  17. Nothing at all because I already have what I have always wanted: a happy and healthy home and I couldn’t be more thankful! 
  18. Who am I kidding? Ok, maybe, I would like something small for Mother’s Day –  At least get me chocolate!    

In conclusion, it’s not the bright and flashy card that I look forward to on Mother’s Day – it’s the Hallmark moments that the Hallmark cards promise to deliver that I crave. 

What do you really want for Mother’s Day? Is it the simple things in life that you truly appreciate or do you like to be spoiled at your special day?

No judgment here – it’s all about YOU – for at least one day out of the year!
