Show Mom you care by giving her a special dinner, taking care of household tasks and creating new memories together.
If Mom enjoys doing the cooking, then you can set the table and offer to be a sous chef she can order around — gathering and prepping ingredients, making the toast and handling all those other sous chef tasks.
If you’re not ready for veggies, starting an herb garden is a nice way to begin growing your own edibles.
Houzz user penthousenester also liked the idea of getting out into the garden on that special Sunday. “In our neck of the woods, Mother’s Day marks the time it is safe to plant tender annuals — so that is what we always did,” she says. If spring hasn’t sprung enough to put in plants, start sowing seeds as a Mother’s Day project.
To do this yourself, attach a blank numbered list to your Mother’s Day card and invite Mom to write down tasks she’d like done that week. Hang it on the fridge to remind you of your new duties. You’ll finish with a whole new appreciation for all that your mother does for you — and maybe an idea of a task or two you can take on from here.
