What Are You Doing for Mother's Day?

Join our Moms Council for a discussion of what you're planning to do this weekend.

If it's early May than that must mean Mother's Day is just a few days off. If you're lucky, you get a full day off while the rest of the family sees to you every need, right?

Hmm, I guess if you're like most of us, Mother's Day is pretty much business as usual, only served in a crepe, like at those fancy brunches to which many of us will go. Maybe you'll get a nice gift or two. If you're really fortunate, maybe you'll get a few hours to yourself while Dad looks after the brood.

Our Madison Moms Council has their own plans. Please chime in and tell us about your own Mother's Day experiences!

Mother's Day is generally the first day we have the whole family over and fire up the grill for the seasons first burgers. (Oh how I've missed my husband cooking on the grill!) So... we don't really do any kind of frilly fancy event. As for gifts... I never know what's going to happen. The gifts are whatever the girls craft up at school.

I love the handmade gifts the Kids do at school! I got a very nice felt and faux pearl heart pin I still keep on my jacket. Mother's day is about pecking order in a way in our family, so we do something that my mother-in-law prefers. Lucky for me we both enjoy having a nice lunch at a restaurant our husbands would usually fond too posh!

Mother's Day for me usually starts out with breakfast in bed, served up by my hubby and daughter. What a treat! Then we're going out for dinner (at D'Oro in Chatham this year) on Saturday since my husband is riding in a 100+ mile bike race on Sunday. Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms!!!

I will be watching my 11 year old son play in 2 baseball games! It is always fun to hang with my husband and my little girl and watch the game! I have a great time! As long as I am with my kids it is a wonderful Mother's Day!

It is not a bad thing that the softball game conflicts with the family brunch! Race to Nowhere reminds us about the effects of our high-stakes, high-pressure culture, so Mother's Day is just a reminder that we can slow down and enjoy a meaningful day with our families!
