Sunday is mother’s day. Somehow my boys, 16 and 12 still rely on dad to make sure mom has a good day. So as I was thinking of how to make the day more special for their mom, and my wife, I decided to share them with you.
First I got a hold of a great book from best selling author, Dr. Meg Meeker “10 Habits of a Happy Mother.” Dr. Meeker is a Pediatrician, mother and best-selling author of six books. She is the country’s leading authority on parenting, teens and children’s health. I even thought about buying one for my mother as well until I realized that she doesn’t read English and the book is not available in Portuguese. (You can win a free copy today by stopping by Dr. Meeker’s blog www.megmeekermd.com ). But beyond the book gift, I also thought of some more personal ways to make Gwen feel special on mother’s day:
Cooking her favorite meal. She loves my lemon linguine with cheddar chicken.
Not asking her to pull my finger for an entire day. Who said I can’t sacrifice for those whom I love?
Cleaning the house in my underwear. (Ok, the underwear part is for me and not her.)
Getting the boys not to argue for an entire day. Who am I kidding? If I could do that I would have my own TV show.
Buying fresh flowers instead of taking some of the neighbors’ roses. (Don’t judge me, I was desperate last year).
Forgoing my daily reminder of how blessed she is to have me as a husband.
How are you making your mother/wife feel special this weekend?
