Mother’s Day is not just about celebrating mom because she is your mom; it’s about celebrating all the little things she does for you each and every day. It’s thanking her for driving you to sporting events, making dinner, reading bedtime stories, sitting in the front row at graduation, baking birthday cupcakes, helping with a science project, and so much more!
Do you have any special Mother’s Day traditions? What is your favorite ‘Mom’ moment?
We have A LOT of moms at Company C and so we asked a few of them to share their favorite Mother’s Day traditions and favorite ‘Mom’ moments with you!
Chris: “Our family spends Mother’s Day at my brother’s house on the coast of Maine. I love this day…especially the ‘Cliff Walk’ after eating too much steak and lobster…and then watching our crazy kids jump into the frigid ocean!”
Staci: “The moment I found out I was going to be a mom made all the waiting worth it! Brendan is the greatest gift I could have ever hoped for.”
Amanda: “My favorite times with Hunter are those that we spend together as a family. Whether it’s watching a movie, playing outside, reading a book or tickling him until he belly laughs (because he has the cutest laugh ever!); as long as we’re together, I’m a pretty happy camper!”
Kristi: “Every year on Mother’s Day, we take off for the day to do something fun as a family. We don’t worry about anything else and just have a good time being together.”
Monica: “Our tradition is that my mom and I like to get mani/pedis right around Mother’s Day so that we can celebrate it together. Now that Zoe is old enough, we all go together and have a girl’s day. Sometimes, if we’re lucky that all scheduling works out, we have an overnight sleep over for just the three of us.”
Petra: “Our Mother’s Day tradition is to drive north to my parent’s home and together with my two sisters and their families, we mulch my Mom’s four large flower gardens. Wheel barrows, shovels and lots of little hands help spread the mulch over newly budding flowers and shrubs. After a couple hours, we sit down together for homemade waffles. I love spending the morning in the dirt with my family on Mother’s Day.”
Becky: “I savor all kinds of silly moments with my children including dress up, making cheeseburgers out of play dough and running in the lawn sprinkler, but the times that I cherish the most are less accidental. The very best times are the ones spent in service of our neighbors; whether it’s walking for a cause or picking up litter on community clean-up day. It is in these moments when I know without a doubt I’m teaching my kids what really matters.”
Somerset: “Growing up, my mother’s day tradition was to take my mother, my aunt and my grandmother all to brunch with our favorite hats on and dine like queens. No boys were allowed. It was a lovely girl power time! Now that I am a mother of three energizer bunnies, my favorite tradition is to go to the local nursery, pick our new flowers for the garden and plant them as a family.”
Deme: “Our Mother’s Day tradition is spending time together, planting new flowers in the garden.”
