Plan an Adventure

Plan an Adventure

One way to delight your mom is to plan a special day for just the two of you

  • Do what she wants to do
  • Shop, browse the farmer's market, go to lunch, go on a picnic, walk, hike, go to a ball game, hit the garage sales or go to the animal shelter and play with the pets.
  • Be sure to take lots of pictures to help you remember the day. For ongoing delight, share the pictures with your mom in a special photo frame or album.

Give Her a Surprise

Give Her a Surprise

Most everyone loves a surprise, including moms. Have her block out a few hours on a certain day; but, don't tell her why. Do something that she would love...something that matches her interests, for example, go to a cooking class, flower show, a movie or a play.

If mom prefers to stay close to home consider making a special surprise meal for her:

  • Make it a special occasion by adding pretty dishes and flowers
  • Serve some of her favorite foods.
  • Consider inviting some of her friends with whom she might want to spend her special day.

Call Your Mom

Call Your Mom

Moms love to have a phone call. She'll love a call on her birthday or on Mother's Day; but, she'll probably love a call any day as long as it's from you.

For a particularly meaningful call for her, be sure to make the subjects of the call be about her:

  • Ask her how she's feeling. 
  • Ask her about her day. 
  • Mom's love to hear about their kids and grandkids; but, try your best to focus the conversation on her.

One very special phone call can be for you to say thanks for something she did or said. Take the time to say "Thanks!" It will delight your mom.

Cook for Mom

Cook for Mom

Moms typically spend a lot of time cooking for their family. To have someone cook for them might be a very welcome relief.

  • Consider making her the traditional breakfast in bed. It combines two things moms like - a surprise and starting their day with their loved ones.
  • Sometimes finding a food surprise in the fridge with a special note from you can be just what you need to do to make her day. 
  • Consider making her a big salad or a casserole that she can eat whenever she wants.
  • Moms with a sweet tooth will certainly appreciate receiving a cake, or cookies and brownies.

Share Your Feelings

Share Your Feelings

Sometimes the easiest way to delight your mom is to let her feel involved in your life.

It is also important that mom knows that you care about her life.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
