This year for Mother’s Day I wanted to do something different instead of a Mother’s Day gift guide.
A few years back, I actually did a similar post, but I thought I would do it again because it’s always fun and nice to see that as mothers we are not alone, and all want a little bit of peace and quiet for Mother’s Day.
I polled my personal Facebook, along with IG, and my blog Facebook group to see what we Mothers REALLY want for Mother’s Day. The consensus is that we want to be left A-L-O-N-E. So men, take note. Take the kids OUT OF THE HOUSE, for at least 4 hours. Make breakfast in bed, draw her a bath and BE GOOONNNE.
Here are more responses FROM mom’s and what THEY want;
“Sleep in and wake up to a clean house and all laundry done.”
“I would love for my 2-year-old not to lick my face when I’m on the phone.”
“A day at the mall by myself with money.”
“Would love for my kids to put their shoes on the first time I ask them to before we leave the house.”
“I keep saying I want a night in a nice hotel… alone. All the food service! King size bed to myself. Wine! Watch whatever I want! Jammies on. Pick me up at checkout. ”
“Finish my coffee without having to reheat it!”
“I would love to repeat myself maybe only 5 times instead of 10. And have the kids sit in their chairs for ALL of meal time.”
“I want the toys organized and sorted.”
“Shark to clean my wood and tile floors.”
“A tropical vacation BY??MY??SELF?? ”
“To Go to the bathroom in peace.”
“I want a whole day at home and do nothing other than eat, sleep, and take multiple uninterrupted baths that include lush bath bombs, music, and wine.”
“Screw the sleeping in, clean house, no kids nonsense. I want a real gift like a new purse or shoes or dresses. Something real that I can hold. A clean house or a morning sleeping in is just one day; I wanna soak that gift in for days to come.”
“I want to be able to wear nice nightgowns without my husband assuming we’re having sex. Can’t a girl just want to feel pretty? While she sleeps? I mean, beauty rest…”
“I want my husband to take a course on listening. If he actually heard me when I told him I’m having the night from hell, maybe he’d pour a glass of wine instead of trying to jump my bones.”
“8 hours of interrupted sleep.”
“Sleep and someone to come to my house to give me a massage and facial.”
“No questions for the whole day.”
” I want to be off duty for 24 hours.”
“I would love for my husband to plan a special day for us as I’m always the one planning, making traditions and telling everyone what to do, sometimes you just want a break and enjoy the day.”
“My wish list is a full night sleep and a permanent housekeeper. Literally would trade all the gifts in the world for a housekeeper. Oh, and my husband to put his dirty clothes in the hamper and NOT on the floor next to it.”
“What I would love for Mother’s Day it to go get a pedicure manicure and a massage… and not feel guilty while I’m there.”
“I want lash extensions and a massage, And lots of cocktails with my girls. Mama needs pampering for a day.”
“I’d like to be able to be productive around my house without my kids destroying my house at the same time.”
I can’t help but LOL at these above. I hope you enjoyed a good chuckle or two. If there is something you would want for Mother’s Day you don’t see above, make sure to comment below!
And ladies, go ahead and pass this on for the men to read?.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mothers out there. You are the glue that keeps the family together. You are strong, bold, amazing, and qualified for what you are doing this exact moment. I know Motherhood can make you crazy, sleepless, and it’s exhausting. But YOU are called to do exactly what you are doing. You got this❤!!
Thank you so much for stopping by, Have a great day!
