A Mother’s Day Guide Just For Me

Posted in Holidays by

There are so many fun Mother’s Day Guides going around, I thought I would share a list of things I selfishly would like on the Big Day.

A Mother's Day Guide Just for Me

1. I want to sleep in with no outside noise. I would like the blinds drawn and all sounds muted. I don’t know how, just make it happen.

2. Chocolate chip waffles for breakfast (made by the husband), with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. And maybe a protein shake too so I don’t have a sugar crash an hour later.

3. I want no tantrums in my vicinity. That includes, but is not limited to: whining, crying, angry jabs towards a face (any face), and stomping of the feet.

4. I would like to forbid the word “Why?” from being said to me. It can be used all day long, just not with me. “But why?!” “Ask your dad.”

5. I want to use the bathroom as often as needed without so much as a tap on the door.[Tweet “For #MothersDay, I want to use the bathroom as often as needed without so much as a tap on the door.”]

6. I want each child to listen attentively whenever I ask them to stop, or continue, to do something.

Actually, scratch all that.

I want an empty house for the entire day with Godiva chocolates (from the Godiva boutique, not the grocery store…).[Tweet “For #MothersDay, I want an empty house for the entire day with my #Godiva chocolates.”]

Then I want to go out to dinner with my family. Preferably sushi, but anywhere the kids will eat and sit still will do (which will most certainly involve “fancy” mac n cheese).

And lastly, I want to do bedtime just like every night. Because it is my favorite part of the day. Not only is it precious one on one time with each of my children, it’s also moments before I get time alone with the husband.

    I love all your ideas! We don’t really celebrate mothers or Father’s Day, but we do make sure to give each other time to feel special. I get massages and pedicures and chad goes diving ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh, yeah! It’s almost pedicure season over here! That’s cool you each get to do something for yourself though, it doesn’t have to be a big deal-just something you really like! (A massage sounds so nice right now!) Enjoy!

    I love your list too!! I think I would ask for a babysitter for dinner though! I am always a sucker for breakfast in bed ๐Ÿ™‚ They always spoil me and let me hang out in my room a few hours… It’s upstairs so it mostly quiet. I love bedtime too. Would make it home in time to tuck those kiddos in.

    It is funny how what we want to receive changes dramatically after having kids. I hope that you get everything you want this Mother’s Day. I am wishing for a clean house.

    Yes, these are all great ideas! I would also like to sleep in. I would like a nice big breakfast and the rest of the cooking done by someone else (hi, husband haha). I would like my toddler to take his nap without any fuss for three hours. And, I would like to spend the day outside hanging with my family.

    First of all, your list made me smile (the innocent wishes of a Mom’s heart) considering how hard it is to achieve them all. And 2nd, its a really cute list. Isn’t it funny how we moms yearn for these simple stuffs now. For me, mani pedi has become a coveted thing to do. Wish we had more hours in a day, when we can put the kids to sleep and enjoy some me time.

    Im hosting a brunch at my house on Sunday so Satruday is my day to myself. I am planning on getting a mani pedi and then going to a waterfront restaurant with my Kindle to eat a nice lunch BY MYSELF>

    This fancy chocolate day, I want in on that. Sitting in an empty house eating fancy chocolate all by myself and banning Thomas the Train for a full 24 hours. Watching grown up women movies eating lots of fancy chocolate… this may be my sweetest dream in a long time tonight. I agree though, I still want to do bedtime. I enjoy the reading and the snuggles. And, I might because I’m a sucker sneak a sliver of fancy chocolate for my favorite little man. The chocolate idea was brilliant. I’m gonna ask for that next year. Thank you and I WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

      Yep! It’s all I want! That’s not too much to ask, is it? I didn’t even think about the movies. Yes, I would love to watch grown women movies. Not sure what though, what’s out?…
      Thank you!! I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day too!!

    I want to not be a mother for the day lol. I want to be left alone unless someone is bringing me food, taking away my empty plate, bringing me coffee or chocolate.

    I love your list!!! Sadly, my Mother’s Day will be nonexistent as hubby works, leaving early and getting back late, and he doesn’t believe in celebrating on another day. ๐Ÿ™ It’ll be just like any other day here. So I guess my lost would be just recognizing the day at all and doing ANYTHING special.

    Those are great ideas for Mother’s Day! I would like to have no tattling on Mother’s Day (as this is the phase our kids are in right now!) : 0 )

      Oh, yes! That’s a good one! My daughter has just recently discovered tattling.

    I love your Mother’s Day ideas! Bed time is a little rough around here, so I think I’ll let my husband handle that ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Truth be told, I wrote this last year and bedtime has changed quite a bit. I maybe wouldn’t mind passing it off to my husband this year.

    I like your alternate plan. The kids listening attentively sounds perfect, but it would never happen in my home for a whole day! Godiva and an empty house it is. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Omg love this!!! My hubby usually does a decent job on both Mother’s Day and my birthday with taking care of most things with my daughter, omg being able to pee by myself would be amazing lol… A mom can dream ๐Ÿ˜‰
