Being a single mom it can be tempting for you to try to skip mother’s day all together. After all, if you have young children you really can’t expect them to plan the perfect mother’s day for you complete with that special gift you’d really love to have. Skipping mother’s day is not the solution! This is a special day set aside for you and you should spend the day feeling special.
Take a bit of time on either Friday or Saturday to prepare a simple Mother’s day menu so that you don’t have to spend the day in the kitchen doing all the cooking. Perhaps you want to have things that your kids can help prepare like frozen waffles, fruit, and juice for a simply scrumptious breakfast. You can make it as simple or as elegant as you wish but make sure that you do as much of the prep work ahead of time so you can have some time to spend relaxing on Sunday with your children. Visit your library and pick up some books about Mother’s Day or take a few minutes to browse the internet to do some research. While spending some time alone with the children on Sunday read the books or discuss the information you found on the internet.
If your children are in school they will have learned about Mother’s Day from their teachers and if you “skip out” on the celebrating part your children can feel let down and that whatever gift they made in school is unimportant. It is up to you to instill in them the importance of valuing their mother and doing special things for her.
This weekend is all about mom, spend some time together just enjoying each other and showing how much you mean to each other.
