Without them you’d have nothing to celebrate

Mother’s Day –noun a day, usually the second Sunday in May, set aside in honor of mothers.

celebrating mothers day with your kids
No matter how commercialized Mother’s Day (and ever other holiday) has become it’s still something that should be celebrated. Mother’s are some of the hardest working people on the planet. Whether she’s a SAHM, WAHM, Work out of the HM, Traveling mom, celebrity mom, mom of multiples, mom of 1 or a Tiger mom the job never ends.

We all play different roles and varied jobs with our kids but none is less important than the next persons. We work to keep our families, healthy, happy, safe, inspired and loved. When Mother’s Day comes around we expect a little commotion on our behalf regarding the great job we are doing. To me this celebration should include the kids; you know those things that call you mom, mommy, momma, mom, momma, mommy, mother, mommy……all day long.

Breakfast in bed, a picnic in the park or a day at the museum can all include the entire brood. A spa day, while a great gift, isn’t a celebration of motherhood.  If next Tuesday I’ve had enough of the busy schedule I can leave the house and get that much needed mani/pedi but Mother’s Day is about being a mother. I understand our need for some alone time, some time to re energize and reboot.  I’m the first to shed a tear out of frustration because the noise level is high or the to-do list is never-ending but that’s what I signed up for. I prefer to celebrate this occasion with the children that gave me the title.

Mother’s Day is about commemorating the job well done and in my opinion it makes the most sense to do it with the ones that call you mom.
