Mother’s Day!

Starting Your Own Mother’s Day Tradition

Being a mom is an exhausting full-time job, especially when you’re a new mom. Mother’s Day is supposed to be a day to honor you, but the thought of having to clean up the house and cook for guests may be overwhelming. Start a different kind of special family tradition with your first baby. Your tradition can involve celebrating outside the house, having someone else do the cooking or making a special keepsake.

Brunch with Other Moms

Sometimes the best thing a new mom can do is spend time with other new moms. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to do that. Invite your friends to meet you at that favorite restaurant you haven’t been to since the baby was born. Take a guestbook and ask everyone to write a short note. By the time your baby graduates from high school, you’ll have a book full of priceless memories.

Call Your Mom

Grandmothers love to see their grandchildren and they love it when you turn to them for help and advice with new baby issues. Make your mom part of your Mother’s Day tradition. Buy a flower arrangement for her, have pictures of the baby printed and ask her to join you for your brunch or dinner. When your children are older, they can give Grandma cards and gifts, and learn about your childhood and hers.

Start a New Hobby and Make a Memory

Starting with the first Mother’s Day flowers you receive, take out one perfect flower and dry it. You can look up a variety of easy methods for drying and preserving flowers on the Internet. After a few years, you’ll have a unique flower arrangement and a hobby you can teach to your kids.

Get on the Road

Remember when you and your spouse used to take road trips and discover little restaurants and special places that were off the beaten path? Go for a drive. Stop at a cafe and eat. Get takeout and go to the beach. Visit a petting zoo. Your children will enjoy these Mother’s Day adventures as they get older.

Whether you just want to relax or you can’t wait to get out of the house, there’s a special Mother’s Day tradition for you and your family. The only rules are to have fun and de-stress.
