Bonbons? Roses? Nope. Here’s what Mom wants
posted by: Amber Johnson
I asked Denver moms on the Mile High Mamas Facebook page what they really want for Mother’s Day on Sunday. While the responses were varied, the majority of them were surprisingly low-key. The lesson? Don’t overthink it or overspend; just focus on what Mom loves. (Spoiler alert: When asked, not one of the moms mentioned that she would like flowers or chocolates for Mother’s Day. Because those treats are for the other 364 days of the year.)
Happy with homemade: Denver mom Sabrina Winder said she would be thrilled with a little love note from her husband. Several moms chimed in that they enjoy receiving homemade cards and crafts from the kids.
Kids’ Popsicle stick flower craft: Color a number of popsicle sticks, cut out a picture of your child in a circle for the flower’s center, then glue the popsicle sticks around it as petals and a stem.
For the book lover: “My husband told me to buy a few books I wanted to read,” Melissa Jackson recalled of her dream Mother’s Day. “He bought me a few goodies to snack on. He then made meals and took care of the kids while I curled up (with) my books all day long.” CLICK TO READ ON
