Mother’s Day Wish List

May 11, 2017

aka a mama can dream

Let’s face it, there are a million Mother’s Day Gift Guides popping up in the blogosphere around this time but none of them really address the things a mom really wants or needs.

  1. a new house – because a new house is always on the wish list.
  2. professional house cleaning – because mom needs a break from cleaning the pee pools under the toilet, crumbs, and fingerprints everywhere.
  3. a lifetime subscription to Headspace – keep mom sane by helping her build daily meditation into her life.
  4. the opportunity to never cook or grocery shop again. but I’ll settle for Chef’s Plate for life.
  5. a vacation, for some moms, a night in a hotel room alone would suffice.
  6. a wardrobe overhaul – I’m sure I’m not the only mama out there who’s kid has a better closet.
  7. a full day of sleep – because I don’t know what it’s like to feel rested even when my kid sleeps in until a reasonable time.
  8. unlimited time to workout without sacrificing quality time with the kiddos. or unlimited passes to all the studios. or both.
  9. a new brain – since I’m pretty sure I birthed mine and I haven’t been able to recover it.
  10. a lifetime supply of your alcohol of choice, without the extra calories, to get through the tough days.

Of course, this list isn’t serious and I want nothing more than to spend the day with my own mama and my special little guy. The reality is, it’s a gift just to be a mom and I’m thankful that Liam chose me to be his. No amount of things could ever replace the happiness I feel at the end of the night when I tuck Liam in and watch him drift off to sleep (except that drink when bedtime is a struggle).

If you could have anything in the world for Mother’s Day, what would it be?
