Mother’s Day is the one day when most Mums will hopefully be able to sleep in and perhaps be spoilt and appreciated by her children with breakfast in bed.
As my children are adults and my daughter is also a Mum, breakfast in bed hasn’t really happened for me in a long time. Although, I do remember when they were little and breakfast in bed was the order of the day, complete with gifts which had been made or purchased at the school fete. I still have some of them today.
However, I do have other ways which I celebrate the morning which I would love to share with you.
As I mentioned, my daughter Rachel is a Mum so it is only fair that she gets some attention as well. I now usually spend the morning with my family and then they are free to do as they wish and Rachel can be spoilt by my darling grandson, Ethan.
I’m actually not big on gifts and last year I wrote a post What is the Best Mother’s Day Gift You Can Give? Can you guess what it would be? Perhaps you should read the post to find out.
My Mother’s Day Morning Tradition
The most important thing that I do each Mother’s Day is run in the Mother’s Day Classic Run. I run with my daughter and we participate in memory of my dear Mum (Rachel’s Nan), who passed away from breast cancer 30 years ago.
After the run I enjoy a relaxing hot shower – nothing better is there?
I then take half an hour to rest in bed in my comfy pj’s with a good book. I have back problems so a good mattress is vital for me. Making sure I’m comfortable in bed is important and a mattress such as Leesa, is a great mattress option
Finally, I enjoy a lovely brunch with my family and then we go our separate ways to enjoy the rest of the day.
So that is my Mother’s Day morning tradition – do you have one?
Mother’s Day is an opportunity to say thank you to that extra special lady in your life and probably the only person who truly loves you unconditionally.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums, Step-Mums, Foster Mums, Grandmums!
Let’s Keep Sizzling!
