Unless you’ve got a mom like this….
Might be time to move out!
But, if you’ve got a cool mom and you REALLY want to reward her this Mother’s Day, just leave her alone.
What she really wants is some time to herself, some peace & quiet….and a chance to relax and recharge her batteries.
A new survey asked moms what makes them the most disappointed or annoyed on Mother’s Day and the top five are:
- Having to clean up after the party or meal.
Sure, breakfast in bed is cute & looks nice on TV or in a movie, but you know who’s gotta clean that disaster? Usually, it’s mom. According to the survey, 47% of mothers say it’s the MOST disappointing thing about Mother’s Day.
- Not being able to take a break from the everyday routine.
Let her have the entire day to herself. She can sleep in, go shopping, get a spa treatment, drink coffee or wine….just about anything but the “same ol’, same ol'” will do.
- Feeling exhausted by the end of the day. 33% of the moms out there said this was the most annoying thing about Mother’s Day. So let her relax!
- Waking up early.
Seriously…are we sensing a theme here? She wants to rest. Relax. So let her sleep in. Take the kids to a park or their grandparents house.
- Not getting any time alone.
Go figure. After being Super Mom the other 364 days of the year, your mom is looking for a friggin’ day off. So give her one!
Sure, the Hallmark commercial wants you to believe that having her family around is exactly what mom wants…but 70% of the women surveyed said that what they REALLY want is to be left alone on Mother’s Day!
