Mother's Day Gift Ideas
For Mother's Day, I would like one day to myself. I'm a stay at home mom. I love my children and my husband dearly; however, I am also an introvert and need time by myself. I can dream.
I have two daughters. They are 12 and 14. Now that they are out of elementary school, I miss the presents that where made in class. I don't want money spent on me for Mother's Day. I only want something made from the heart (and a clean house). I always thought what a big hassle it was to go out to eat for Mother's Day. I think the perfect meal out would be the life size cut outs of the family members and myself seated around a table. That way, it would be nice and quiet. There would be mo fighting or disagreements and it would only be a fraction of the cost.

Here are some of my Mother's Day wishes:
I would like to have patio furniture and flowering plants, but most of all, I would like the family to clean up after themselves.
For Mother's Day, I would like to spend the day with my family for eight hours and not have to do anything. As a new SAHM, I do get fatigued by a job that never ends. An eight-hour vacation from the dishes, decisions, clutter-control, and daily tasks of life would be a dream come true! No money needs to be spent, and nothing needs to be wrapped. I would just like to have a vacation day with the most important people in the world, my family!
Hi! I know I would appreciate perennials for my landscaping/garden. Things such as Lupines, Iris, Daylilies, Daisies, etc. are not as expensive as a shrub would be. Or to even spend some time with me in the garden, take a walk together, just to spend some quality time together, or even an IOU to do something together.
Three possibles popped into my mind:
Of course, none of us have any money, so I hope to get hugs from the kids and grandkids in town.
