4 ways to make mom feel special this Mother’s Day.
Mother’s day is fast approaching and although you may have gotten your own mother something already, have you thought about your baby’s mother? If the answer is no, don’t panic – we’ve got you covered.
If this is the first Mother’s Day your partner gets to celebrate, chances are your kids are too small to buy anything and also cannot craft anything…at least on their own. So how do you make your partner’s first Mother’s Day special? We have compiled a list of easy-to-do projects/ideas to help ensure your partner feels like the amazing that mom she is.
Breakfast in Bed
Making sure you cover breakfast should be first on your plans for her first Mother’s Day. Make her favorite food and keep an eye on the baby monitor while you’re at it. That way, when baby wakes up you can beat her to the crib so it can truly be a breakfast in bed. Don’t forget to clean the kitchen while mom is enjoying her breakfast. There’s nothing worse than relaxing in bed with breakfast only to have to deal with the kitchen mess afterwards.
Get your hands dirty!
Well, your little ones actually. Go to your local craft store and pick up some baby-safe paint, a frame (make sure it matches your decor) and construction paper. Pour the paint on some newspaper, dip your baby’s hands in it and make some handprints on the construction paper. Try to aim for the middle of the page so there is some room to write around the handprints. Let it dry and place it in the frame and voila – you’ve got some adorable artwork you helped your little one create.
Pro Tip: Some little ones hate getting their hands dirty. Use crayons instead of paint to create
scribbles in the middle of the page with “Happy Mother’s Day” written at the top of the page and the date at the bottom. Either way, you’ll have some framed artwork in your dining room (and major bonus points for being the most thoughtful partner on the block).
No, not you time, the ME in the title is referring to your partner. Give her a break. As much as she loves you both and wants to spend time with you, it’s Mother’s Day not Family Day. Take your little one out and about for a couple of hours and give your partner some much needed “Me” time.
Make it or order it. This one is a no-brainer.
And there you have it: 4 easy, simple things you can do to ensure your partners first Mother’s day is a success.
