I was initially putting together a mother’s day gift guide and stopped to think. All those things, the chocolates, the perfumes, the gifts etc are all awesome do not get me wrong. But there are just some things that i as a mother really wants. These things often are not bought with money but i am sure many other mothers would agree with me. I love to receive gifts from my husband for mothers day. However, for me, the little things really count. Motherhood is a 24/7 full-time job that you never really get a break from. My brain is constantly in motion from thinking about hubby to my child, to work, to blogging, to business, it’s non-stop. Motherhood has definitely taught me so many great lessons about life and even about fitness.
Here goes my list of What moms really want for mother’s day. I hope you find this helpful, maybe you could leave your computers open for the men in your lives to stumble upon.
What moms really want for mother’s day
Breakfast in bed
I really would love to sleep in and wake up to some nice and hot breakfast in bed on Mother’s day. I am thinking some nice pancakes, bacon, and eggs, with sausages and a bottle of water. As a mom, on weekends with the family, having to wake up and hurry to prep breakfast can get a little tiring. Couple that with my daughter wanting to be carried or having her own separate meal besides what hubby or i want. So, some nice breakfast in bed will really be nice for me.
This would be amazing, no alarm clock! Imagine getting to sleep in till when my body actually feels rested and wants to wake up. I would love to block out the curtains from the morning sunlight and cuddle under my blanket. It would be nice for hubby to pick my daughter and get her breakfast and prep her while i continue to snooze on until at least 9 am. Since the birth of my daughter, i honestly cannot remember when i got 6-8 hours of sleep. Most days i stay up later after she sleeps so i can get some business work done etc.
Who does not love a clean house? a clean house for about 24 hours is not too much to ask for, is it? A clean house is certainly a great gift for mom on Mother’s day. I would love to wake up to all the toys put away, the dishes all cleaned out, floors cleaned and the entire house spotless and smelling refreshing. Arghhhh such a nice dream….. now i am awake loll. They do not have to get it professionally cleaned, but a few things put in the right places helps.
Day out alone
A day out with no kids once in a while is amazing. I mean we all love our children so much but some alone time would be great. I could have some peace and quiet to catch up on movies and netflix or even just stare into space.
A nice spa day would be awesome. Body massage, manicure, and a pedicure will be appreciated. It could be done at home with some nice scented candles set up.
I will love to have all the meals for the day cooked by someone other than myself. And when i mean cooked, i do not mean a few things thrown together. I am talking about nice and delicious meals well cooked and ready for me to indulge in.
Day off mommy duties
What did you just say? Yes, i said it, a day without mommy duties! That means no dishes, no laundry, no cleaning, no washing etc. No screaming at kids to keep quiet, no prepping baby up for the day, no cooking. Totally all about mommy and nothing else lol.
For some reason, i would really love to spend a night in the hotel, nice and fresh clean sheets, breakfast buffet with various choices. Wake up when i want to wake up and not have to lift a finger to clean. I would also love a bathroom that is a lot nicer than mine. I do not know about you, but the most important thing in a hotel room is the bathroom. If it is not better than my bathroom at home, then the experience is already messed up.
It would be nice to have daddy wake up and dress my daughter up, give her a bath, brush her teeth and get her set for the day. Hence she would not have to kick me in the face or wake me from my beauty sleep with screams of “i want cereal mommy” lollll
Go to the bathroom and shower by myself
Haha, i know most mothers can agree to this. How often do you get to have the bathroom and shower to yourself? It’s so cute though, i would be in the bathroom and she comes running to it and stands/ sits right in front of me. Seriously? Or if the door is locked, she will peek through the bottom and yell mommy come out. When i take showers, sometimes she will come and stand outside the glass of the shower waiting for me to come out.
No diaper change
Now, this is huge! Hubby does not quite like changing diapers lol, well isn’t that all of us? A day free of diapers would be amazing. I could play with my daughter and then when she poops, “go meet daddy”
Whenever i work out i feel like i always have to speed through it due to a long list of things to do or a baby at home. I could definitely do with the option to spend 2 hours in the gym. Maybe i would not really spend two hours but the option sounds nice
Go shopping with no budget
Haha, this would be a nice dream, right? But wouldn’t it be nice to not have a budget and just shop? A girl can only dream!
All of these are great, but most importantly i want a happy, healthy and God fearing husband and kids. They mean the world to me and its always a joy to be a wife and mother to them. Motherhood does get stressful sometimes, but i honestly would not have it any other way. I thank god every day for blessing me with such a purpose in life.
Anyway, so that is my long list of awesome mother’s day gift ideas for what mothers really want for mother’s day. What are some of yours?
