Making Creative Mother’s Day Memories How Are You Showing Your Love?

Right now, everyone is concerned about the world we live in and how it’s changing. While adapting to a new normal is essential, don’t let it take away from a May tradition that brings joy: Mother’s Day. If you’re like me, you may be scrambling to find the right way to show the mothers in your life that you care, especially since many events are canceled and many places are closed. But with a little bit of creativity, you can make this Mother’s Day count and create memories you both will cherish. Here are two of our recommendations. Tackle the little things for her. Whether you’re celebrating the mother of your children or your own mom, remember that it’s not about big gifts but about how you show your appreciation. If the mom in your life handles most of the household chores, take this opportunity to complete them for her and don’t stop there. Continuing to help year-round goes a long way. If you don’t already, clean up around the house, carry in groceries, and make dinner a couple nights a week. If your mom or wife uses the weekend to tackle errands, this is your time to shine by creating a day full of relaxation for her. To ensure she doesn’t figure out the surprise, ask other family members and her friends about her usual chores, favorite shows, and even favorite candles to have burning. (Pro tip: You can also see what she’s watching if you share a streaming account!) While she enjoys a surprise relaxing day on the couch, tackle all her chores and errands. When you’ve finished, take a moment to sit with her and ask why her favorite things mean so much to her. Invite her to share stories from childhood related to these things. This is a great way to bond and spend quality time with any mother in your life. “If your mom loves to cook, it’s time to get creative with your tech. Utilize apps like Skype or FaceTime to simultaneously cook a homemade dish.”

Make a tech-based dinner ‘together.’ If your mom considers herself a foodie, the current world might be extra dull since she can’t go out to eat. And if she’s in a high-risk category for COVID-19, it may not be the best time to visit. But you can still make her day by using a food delivery service like Uber Eats, Postmates, or DoorDash to send her a favorite dessert or meal. It’s important to note that these apps all provide a contactless delivery option to further reduce any risk of exposure. If your mom loves to cook, it’s time to get creative with your tech. Utilize apps like Skype or FaceTime to simultaneously cook a homemade dish. To do this, you first need to use a delivery app to send her all the ingredients she needs for the dessert or dinner. (And don’t forget your own ingredients!) Then, set up your phone, tablet, or laptop in the kitchen so you can cook together! She can teach

you how to make it from her own kitchen and enjoy the fun of making it herself. After the cooking or baking is finished, compare how each dish turned out and sit down to eat.

So, what are some of the ways you make quality Mother’s Day memories?
