Mother's Day

What do you normally do on Mother’s Day? Do you stay home and relax? Go out to eat?

This will be my 5th year celebrating Mother’s Day for myself; before that it was all about my mami. Of course, that means that I share the celebrations with my mom now. Usually, this means I do a little relaxing at home with my family and then visit my mother for the other half of the day. I think once we all went out to eat together. But, we’ve never really done a family day out for Mother’s Day. I think maybe next year I will plan a beach trip so we can all enjoy the wonderful May weather and both my mom and I can relax by the ocean.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Nestle Family is currently holding a national giveaway on their site and also offering a giveaway for ModernMami.com readers.

I normally celebrate Mother's Day by taking my Mom and Dad out for a nice lunch. But, we do it the Saturday before Mother's Day to avoid the crazy crowds (tried the real day ONCE and it was such a long wait and so crowded that we decided to not try it again)!

My mom lives in another state, but I make sure to call her bright and early to wish her a happy mother's day.

I usually spend the day with my kids and husband. My kids make breakfast in bed (toast, fruit, milk) and I get complete reign of the TV, lunch, dinner, etc. We usually go to dinner wherever I want. And somewhere in there I get a gift or flowers. We keep it low key, but I always have a lovely day!
