Mother’s Day is dedicated to celebrating all the multi-tasking, taxi-driving, mood-soothing queens who make momming look easy, but let’s not forget how much hard work really goes into helping those #littleblossoms bloom each and every day. As moms ourselves, we know how rewarding it is to watch our five children go from first steps and first words, to mastering shoelaces and reading, to accomplishing whatever dreams their futures hold. Sure, some days leave us feeling as though we’re lost on a long, exhausting, rough road. However, when you arrive at the destinations where moments transform into treasured memories, you know you’d always pick the same path again and again.
To help make the journey less of a bumpy ride, we’ve paired with Saffron Avenue to create a beautiful set of downloadable door hangers to offer moments of peace and quiet when needed most (even if only for a few minutes). Even better, these door hangers can serve dual duty by providing not only some indulgent downtime but also hints to your spouse and kiddos that mom could use a little love. Consider writing on the back or placing a sticky note on your door hanger with ideas your little ones (with some help from your spouse, of course) can do to make you feel special. Here are a few not-so-subtle clues we plan to drop:
Treat your bedroom like a hotel suite, making requests for your morning meal as if ordering from a menu. From syrupy-soaked waffles to muffins bursting with blueberries to a bubbly mimosa, treat yourself to delicious food fit for an amazing mom…because you are one!
A mate left alone to entertain the munchkins will appreciate some ideas on how to keep them busy (and quiet!) while you sneak in a little shuteye. Suggest picking a bouquet of backyard “wildflowers” (aka dandelions), decorating frames to hold a family picture, baking and frosting a batch of cupcakes, or watercolor painting new artwork for the fridge.
Don’t let the carefree experience of a bubble bath wash away down the drain. Encourage your loved ones to prolong the pampering by setting up an in-home spa offering homemade facials, mani/pedi treatments, and tiny finger massages.
Our wish for all the amazing moms is that every single day be filled with the same gratitude, love, and relaxation honored on Mother’s Day. When little victories happen or just occasions offering a belly laugh or bright smile, celebrate the moment as if it were a mini-Mother’s Day. You deserve it!
