Whether you celebrate with your mother, mother-in-law, or your kids, I have some tips!
A tradition I started a few years ago is to celebrate on Mother’s Day Eve instead! You rarely need reservations and the restaurants don’t have those over-the-top Mother’s Day Crowds! The food is usually much better quality than on Mother’s Day when cooks and chefs are over-worked and stressed. The service is usually much better than on Mother’s Day when servers are over-worked and stressed. The drinks are usually much better than on Mother’s Day when bartenders and mixologists are over-worked and stressed.
I have really enjoyed my Mother’s Day Eve tradition! Prior to this new tradition, Mother’s Day was usually too stressful to enjoy.
So now on Mother’s Day, I just relax or sometimes take in a movie or read a good book or enjoy being outdoors in nice weather – or spend the day with family – and just enjoy the day without Mother’s Day crowds!
And I still don’t cook because it’s Mother’s Day after all! Hubby usually BBQ’s! So two days of celebrating and not cooking!
Celebrating two days also makes it so you can focus on your mother and/or mother-in-law one day and yourself the other day! I felt a little left out as an honored mom on Mother’s Day prior to this new tradition.
Don’t forget your step-mom on Mother’s Day! Give her a call or some kind of acknowledgement. There really should be a Step Day to honor those relationships and roles.
Don’t forget your daughters and daughters-in-law who are mothers!
Don’t forget the mother of your children!
Happy Mother’s Day Eve ♥️
Happy Mother’s Day Weekend ♥️
