Mother’s Day is approaching… and for the first time in my life, I am going to celebrate as a real MOTHER! Last year I tried to say I should get a lil something from my furson, Mcmuffin, but that request was denied.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the correct etiquette for a new Mom on Mother’s Day. Does the Mom ask for a gift, or does the Mom let Daddy and the kids pick it out? Does the Mom make plans for the day, or does the Mom allow her family to plan something special? Does the Mom get to do whatever she wants (like refuse to change any poopy diapers)? Can the Mom wear a ball gown, tiara, and fuzzy slippers, sip champagne, eat pizza, and watch RHOBH reruns all day?
My ideal Mother’s Day would be a day filled of family time with Annabelle, Mcmuffin, and B. While I don’t expect any gifts, I still thought it would be fun to create a Mother’s Day gift guide based on what a lot of my new mom friends have told me they’d like to receive.
“A nap. No explanation necessary.”
“A long uninterrupted shower.”
“A new pair of shoes… because my clothes don’t fit and shoes always do.”
“Something with his initials or a birthstone.”
“Professional pictures of my girl because she is only this little once.”
“A new Pandora bead for my bracelet.”
“A canvas made of baby pictures for our bedroom.”
“Spa day. If we had a sitter, my husband could come too!”
“Cupcakes. I love cupcakes.”
“Flowers and a handmade card.”
“A new camera to take pictures of the baby.”
What would be your ideal Mother’s Day gift?

Love this! My sister & I are grown, but I feel like my Mom would still love to have a nap with no explanation!

I’d love to have a baby-sitter so the hubby and I could go on a date! Is that wrong, considering it’s MOTHER’S day? Lol… I feel like I should want to spend time with the baby. But dates are always nice!
I think that is a great idea for a gift! I’m sure your hubby would love it too =0)
I have been thinking this same thing! I have no idea what the etiquette is here if you’re the mom! Mostly I’m hoping my husband doesn’t forget, b/c that would be really disappointing. I have no idea what we’ll do but I think I leave it to him unless he asks about it.
Remind him that you need to get gifts for your Moms!
I wanted to try my luck at telling hubs that I should get some recognition for Mother’s Day, but not sure how that will fly. LOL
