Are you trying to come up with a fun way to help your mom have a wonderful Mother’s Day? If so, there are several things to consider that are bound to make your mom smile. Look at a few ideas.

A Trip to the Amusement Park

If your mom is an adventurous daredevil, take her to the local amusement park. She can ride the latest roller coaster, the Ferris wheel, water rides and more! Take a lot of photos and make a photo album to give to her. She's sure to appreciate an exhilarating day spent with her kids.

A Day at the Zoo

Is your mom an animal lover? If so, treat her to a day at the zoo. She will love seeing the birds, giraffes, gorillas, seals and other animals in the zoo’s collection. Be sure to get her a stuffed animal or mug in the gift shop so she has something special to help her remember the fun experience.




A Spa Day

Does your mom like to have her hair done? Maybe she needs a relaxing massage. If so, consider treating her to a day at the spa. She can relax, read or listen to music while being pampered for a few hours. As an extra bit of fun get her a treat from a place such as The Sweet Basket
so she can enjoy a delicious snack while she savors her day!

A Shopping Expedition

If your mom loves to shop for clothes, consider taking her to some her favorite stores on Mother’s Day. You could be the driver so she wouldn’t have to find a parking space. She could just hop out and walk to her favorite store. Plus, give her a few gift cards so she can treat herself to a couple outfits. When she’s finished shopping, take her to her favorite restaurant for lunch or dinner.

A Quiet Day at Home

Maybe you have a big family with lots of young siblings. Chances are, your mom would appreciate a quiet day at home to watch movies, read or listen to music without interruption. On Mother’s Day, offer to babysit your little sisters and brothers so mom can spend time doing what she’d like to do on that day.

Lastly, these are just four ideas on how to treat your mom to a fun Mother’s Day. The type of activity you plan depends a lot on her unique personality. Think about what your mom would really like to do and help to make it happen for her.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards.

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
