What Moms REALLY Want For Mother's Day


I asked, and whoa... I got SO many responses when I posed this question on Instagram- what do moms really want for Mother's Day?  Believe it or not, no one said a mug or candle.  😂

TIME FOR YOURSELF

"An afternoon. Handed the keys, a wad of cash, and say see ya after dinner!"
"I don’t think I’m alone when saying: being alone.  I want to get brunch with friends, not a toddler, a pedicure and a nap. HOME ALONE!"
"But really I wanna lay in bed all day in a silent house and watch Netflix and online shop and eat a bunch of dessert"
"Hotel stay by myself"
"Just the morning alone"
Some me time to get a good workout and a massage in, and probably a nap"
"The afternoon to stroll around the local greenhouse to pick my plants/flowers for hours of digging in dirt to plant my pots"

TO BE PAMPERED

"Spa day all alone"
"A massage" (soooo many of these!)
"A facial"
"An appointment made for me to go get my nails done"
"I want a spa day I didn't arrange for myself"
"A hair appointment with the works and no grief about the cost"

ACTS OF SERVICE

"A week off from the dishes"
"Mommy and Me photo session.  Photos are my guilty pleasure"
"Literally anything I didn’t plan or buy myself!"
"A fun day together as a family that I don’t have to plan!"
"A deep cleaning on the house by a professional! I’m talking like a full 8 hours while we’re gone where you come home to floors so clean you can eat off of them!"
"A few home projects to be completed without me hovering, taking the lead on, or nagging to get done"
"My car detailed" 
" I don't want flowers or necklaces or a hotel... I just want someone to do my job for a day"


FROM THE HEART

"A handmade card from my toddler I didn't help with" 
"I would say a handmade project by the little ones"
"I want a good picture of me with my kids I didn't ask for"


GIFTS

"A fully loaded Starbucks gift card that will last me months"
