Every year, my mother and her best friend wake up the morning of Mother’s Day, hop in the car and leave their kids behind. They rarely even let us know where they’re headed, but we all know not to ask. On Mother’s Day, we simply let them do their thing, whatever that may be! You’re a mother 365 days of the year, so why not take just one day (or at least a few hours) off from mommyhood? Call up your fellow mothers and best friends and have a day to yourself doing all the things that you used to love but rarely have the time to do anymore. Here are ten ideas to help you treat yourself to the ultimate Mom’s Day off!
Mimosas, Bloody Marys and Bellinis are the perfect way to cheer the start of your Mom’s Day Off. Maybe you haven’t seen the girls lately and your gossip sessions have been reduced to an email chain and phone call once a month. It’s time to reunite in the name of motherhood! Locate your city’s best bottomless brunch, get comfortable and tell your waiter to keep the champagne flowing. Or invite the girls over and have the fam cook brunch for ya! Fancy frittatas, cute cinnamon rolls, cocktails and girlfriends, what more does a mother need? And the best part: no cooking, no serving, and no cleaning up!
