IDEAS FOR A VERY UNIQUE MOTHER’S DAY


Mother’s Day is slated on the 9th of May…just a few weeks away! Given the unique circumstance we are all in, celebrations will have to be indoors amidst intimate family members. But yes! Nothing can stop us from celebrating this very special day dedicated to our SUPERMOM!


Since we’re working/studying at home, why not set aside this whole day for her:


1. BREAKFAST IN BED

Ah…this is an all-time favourite! How can it not be? What better way to start the day by serving Mom with her favourite breakfast in bed. Besides, breakfast is probably the easiest meal to prepare. Add a small note or a flower and breakfast is served, fit for a queen!

2. COUPONS FOR CHORES

Okay let’s face it no one really loves chores. We love Mom but we don’t want to over-commit and underdeliver that she ends up doing the chores we promised to do.

So, create a few coupons Mom can claim during the day. Here are some examples:


– Feed and clean up after the dog

– Water the plants (morning and afternoon)

– Wash the dishes used during breakfast (Again, it is the easiest to prepare so there shouldn’t be too many to clean.)

– Spend 30 minutes to teach her to use social media. Patience is key.

– Introduce her to Netflix. Better yet show her the long list of shows available at her fingertips from western shows to K-Drama to original Tagalog movies.


3. BACKYARD GARDEN PICNIC

For lunch, how about ordering from her favourite restaurant and setting it outside. Like a picnic. Of course, you may need all of your electric fans in the house pointed at her but this at least, gives her a good reason to get some much needed air. The use of aper plates is optional.
