Mother’s day can mean different things depending on you and your family’s traditions. For some it means gathering with family and celebrating together; others – a quiet day in. But for every Mother on Mother’s day, there’s one thing that I think should always come with the territory: some well-deserved time in the chill zone.
Being a parent so often requires you to put aside your own needs to prioritize those of your family, but Mother’s day is about appreciating all that hard work and sacrifice. Every mom deserves to have her dedication celebrated!
Here are some ideas and suggestions of how to spend some of that hard-won time relaxing this Mother’s Day:
Morning with the Family
A simple breakfast (that even younger kids can make with some help), a family-friendly movie that’s fun for adults, and a gorgeous shawlette you can knit while watching can make this Mother’s Day morning a fabulous wake-up!
Family Brunch Get-Together
Nobody has to agree on what they want with these mini-quiches, and everyone gets to have it their way – no fuss. Pairing these with mimosas that are as beautiful as they are delicious, makes for a perfect no-stress brunch that Mom (and Grandma!) can enjoy.
Quiet Evening Wind-Down
This is the evening for relaxing and some serious Mom Time. I love to spend my downtime bouncing between watching TV while I knit and playing video games, so I’ve got suggestions for both! Strawberry season, the Sugar Twist Cowl, and some great sci-fi with strong female leads come together for a fun night in!
