With Mother’s Day right around the corner, my siblings and I are scrambling for something to give her. Yes, we give her presents or take her out for lunch for Mother’s Day because it’s just what we do.
I’m not saying what we came up with for her this year because she might actually read this, the sneaky woman, and know what she’s getting. But I will say that we try to get her something unique every year, something she’s always wanted. One year it was a digital picture frame (which I don’t think she uses). The next year it was an MP3 player (which she uses all the time and swears she needs another one). She’s been hinting for us to buy her a laptop (she’s in dream land) or a tablet (she’s really sniffing something she shouldn’t).
Presents aside, my mom is spoiled every day of the year. If she ever says she isn’t, don’t believe her. I spoil the hell out of her all year long, but Mother’s Day is a special day for her. She’s one of my biggest fans who doesn’t read my work (too hot for her). She’s my support when I’m feeling low no matter what has me down. If I thought she’d appreciate it, I might think about getting a I heart mom tattoo (except she hates tattoos…which is why I have three *cough*).
So I show Mom how I love her in other ways. This year, if weather permits, I’ll be taking her to Jefferson Island to the Rip Van Winkle Gardens and Avery Island.
What do you do for your mom that’s extra special for Mother’s Day?
