think about your mum

Here are a few ideas from Wanelo as we prepare for the big day- Mother’s Day. Whenever the subject or Mother’s Day (or Father’s Day) comes up at our house, my kids balk at and gloomily mutter, “when’s it going to be Kid’s Day?” This happens, without fail, every year. Oh my dearest teenage cherubs… god love ’em.

And a few hand selected ideas I’ve come up with on my own:
From the background can you tell where one can pick up this book?

Killing me- I laugh out loud every time I even think about this book. It’s available at Urban Outfitters of course, otherwise known at our house as the potty word store. Not that we don’t love UO, it’s maybe not the best place for little ones just learning how to read- if you know what I mean.

Or skip a merchandise purchase entirely and make your mom dinner. Perhaps you can personalize it with a slightly camouflaged salad-self-portrait.

Good luck and remember that every other day of the year is Kid’s Day- so take one day and treat your mom right!

    That book made me laugh for real. Whenever my kids give the “Kid’s Day” gripe, I always say that Kid’s day is every other holiday and their birthdays, and their friends’ birthdays.
