Sometimes it's easy to forget how much our moms mean to us. This year, how about trying something different to show you care on Mother's Day. No boring store bought cards this May 13!
Mom is often the most involved person in a girl's life. Every day, since day one, she's the one who makes breakfast, roots for your team, picks you up from practice and is there when you have boy trouble.
I remember my mom taught me how to sing the ABCs, make my bed, throw a party and make scrambled eggs. Most, importantly, she always supports me. She was at every dance recital. She was there for every tear when boys broke my heart. She even helped me find the perfect princess prom dress.
A lot of times it's not about what you can buy, but what you can do or say. This year, try making something inventive for Mother's Day, like a scrapbook of your favorite memories, a photo collage or a list of all the things she taught you. Tell your mom how she made you who you are today. Try making it a habit to say "thank you" and "I love you."
You could try finishing this statement, "Mom, without you, I wouldn't..." and add on some other kind-hearted statements, then put the phrases into a homemade book using colored paper. Perfect Mother's Day present!
Maybe you can make a necklace that represents each member of your family or dress yourself and your sibs up and take a nice picture. You can make homemade coupons Mom can redeem for a "free manicure" (at the "salon" in your room, of course), free quick kitchen cleanup or homemade breakfast!
You can also do something for another mother in your life like a grandma, a neighbor or a friend. Sometimes other people's moms can influence you just as much. Maybe drop off a cupcake that you made and put her name on it with edible gel!
No matter what you want to do, Mother's Day is the time to show Mom a big great big "THANKS!" After all, she made you the great LSL girl you are today.
