The Best Mother's Day Gift

A lot of people (i.e. liars) will tell you that the best Mother's Day gift is a homemade card, or macaroni necklace. Others will claim that all they want is a hug from their child (which also happens to be a great way to get jelly-flavored handprints on your back). I might've once argued that the best Mother's Day gift is a really stupid and possibly inappropriately carved key chain, but that was only true before I was a mom and I didn't have to worry about receiving one myself.

Really, what a mom truly wants is even more simple than any of that. She wants to be understood. Appreciated. Maybe pampered just a teeny bit. And she definitely wants to laugh - because let's face it, that's what keeps us all from going completely off the deep edge.

So here are a few quick reads for each type of mother you might have (or be) that cover all those bases, and will, hopefully, make moms everywhere feel understood, appreciated, and jovial enough to prevent them from needing to spike their coffee.

For the mom who needs reassurance she isn't (exactly) becoming her mother:


For the mom still struggling her way through the horrors of 2 A.M. babydom (or for the mom considering having another baby but first, wants to remember what it's like to cradle that darling bundle of joy at 2 A.M.):

For the mom who thinks every other mom has it all pulled together:

For the mom who loves girls' night, but doesn't like planning ahead:

For the mom who strongly suspects a lot of baby products are completely bogus:

For the mom who wants a little special treat(ment):

For the mom who wonders if anyone else truly understands what her job is all about:

For the mom who needs a little more Mother's Day in her life:

Thanks a million to all you moms out there for all you do! Sometime this week, maybe after cleaning up the kitchen disaster caused by grade-schoolers making you breakfast in bed, I hope you get a moment to reflect on how awesome you are. Try to fit that in between plunging the toilet and reading Goodnight Moon for the infinity-th time, and give yourself a pat on the back - and while you're at it, you might want to try to wipe that jelly off your left shoulder blade.

I hope you enjoyed yourself while you were here - and I hope you come back! Please share inappropriate giggles with me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, or subscribe via email so you don't miss a thing!
