5 simple things for mom

It’s Mother’s Day – a day of honor and gratitude.  Here are 5 simple things that say, “Thanks, Mom!”


Every mom dreams of getting extra sleep – so keep the kids quiet and let her get a few extra hours of shut-eye. 


The idea of breakfast in bed always sounds good but in actuality it’s normally a slightly stressful mess.  Breakfast at the table is just as sweet, just as delicious and a little more relaxing than trying to take a sip of hot coffee with two kids jumping on the bed.  Make her breakfast, take her to brunch or plan a quiet dinner after the kids go to bed. 


A little exercise is a great addition to any Mother’s Day itinerary.  A run or walk around Castle Island or a trip to the gym will help energize mom and put a smile on her face.

Duly Noted:
Take five minutes and thank your mom/wife for all the wonderful things that she has done in a note or a card.  All moms want to be appreciated and heartfelt words is the perfect way to show how much you care.

Peace and quiet: 

What mom wouldn’t love to sit quietly and read a book or flip through the newest  edition of  US weekly all by themselves in the quiet of their living room.  Better yet, a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey and the privacy of her bedroom.

Simple things but big gestures that mom will really appreciate!  Happy Mother’s Day!
