Celebrate Your Fellow Moms this Mother’s Day

(April 2012) - While many things change over the years and between generations, one thing remains the same: motherhood is a challenging experience. We spend each day living and working alongside an extensive network of younger moms who are constantly trying to balance their family life in today’s busy world. Since a little appreciation goes a long way, a Mother’s Day gesture from a peer would be an incredibly meaningful way to recognize the efforts of these hardworking women.

To help encourage any of the moms in your life, here are some fun ideas from our Mother’s Day experts.

  • Treat them to some pampering with a spa day. Side by side pedicures are a great way to relax and catch up.

  • Offer to babysit and send out mom and dad for a romantic date night.

  • Relieve some of the mealtime struggles by making her a few nutritious freezer meals that she can easily heat up on a weeknight when she’s pressed for time.

  • Oftentimes moms are behind the camera and don’t have many pictures of themselves with their children. Go through your photos to see if you’ve taken any great family shots that you could print out and give to her.

  • Write a few words of encouragement or a note about what makes her such a great mom and send it to her.
