What Moms Really Want for Mother's Day

Well, I can't speak for all moms, but here are 5 things that *I* want for Mother's Day.

1.

For someone to come clean my house......and for it to stay clean for longer than 5.25 minutes. 


A maid would be even better.

2.

No screeching, no crying, no whining.  

Actually how about the chance NOT to be a mom.  Just for a few hours...just a few..blissful, quiet hours without any kids around...then they can come back. 
3.

Chocolate...and Wine.



I like chocolate truffles...and I like fruity wines.

4.

For someone else to cook a nice meal AND clean up after it. 

This looks yummy!  Mmm...meat!

The cleaning up part is vital.  My kids are great at cooking, but not so great at cleaning up afterwards.  Even when they clean up, it's not as clean as I would get it.  And, believe you me, I have LOW standards when it comes to cleaning. 

5.

Appreciation and Admiration

To know that someone appreciates all she does.  To know that someone loves her for who she is.  To know that someone thinks she is beautiful, no matter how many extra pounds or wrinkles or gray hairs. 
To know that someone appreciates all the dinners cooked, and floors swept and hugs given and stories read and lessons taught and miles driven. 
And to extend grace when she fails...when she yells or burns dinner or loses patience.

And, to be totally fair to my family, I do get lots of appreciation and admiration from my husband and children on a regular basis. And, they give me way more grace than I deserve.   I also occasionally get chocolate...and even less occasionally..wine.   The rest of the things....I am still waiting on.

What do YOU want for Mother's Day?

  2. I would love a maid but I know I would go crazy on my family the minute I saw a piece of dirt. Which would literally be the minute anyone walked into the kitchen. I know this because it happens every time I sweep the kitchen floor. It's maddening.

  4. Ah, the cleaning would be amazing and then the cleaning after the cleaning because the kids saw a clean house and decided to remedy the situation pronto! I'm getting a tornado shelter for Mother's Day. For real, and I am really happy because when yo live in Tornado Alley, a tornado shelter is way past diamonds on any mom's list.

  5. Sounds like am aMAZing mother's day. I'm teaching my toddler how to admire me more and say things like "dinner was delicious" before we let him leave the table. It feels a little less than genuine...but I can't help myself ;)

  6. Sounds perfect to me!!! Last Mother's Day was a disaster.... doughnuts after Church meant a sugar melt down at the park where I was suppose to be basking in the sun and watching my family have fun.
