Make Mothers Day an extra special day

....saying thanks to Mom for eveything she does!

Start your mums day, by letting her have a lie in, this is extra special as usually she is up running around after you, make her toast and tea, and take it to her, on a tray, get dad to help with the hot stuff. Before you make the toast press a love heart into the bread before you pop into the toaster, and when it comes out it leaves the impression. (this is so cute)

By this time, mum should be up and dressed then you could surprise her by tidying your room. She really will think it is Christmas never mind mothers day. make sure she is sitting comfortably with the remote for the TV.

In the afternoon you could arrange a picnic even in the outside in the garden if it is nice, remember its mums day off. So no cooking allowed.

Get some help here from your mums friends before the day, if you need help.

      I love these "from the heart" gifts. I did get to talk to Mom on Mother's Day, we were separated by 200 miles but still our hearts touched.

      My dad would spoil my mom by getting me out of the house for the day. But when I returned from fishing she was always excited to give me a hug.
