Celebrate Your True Superhero: Mom


Caroline Colwell, News Editor

Spring is here, and so is Mother’s Day. Of course everyone remembered… right?

Don’t fret! Mirador is ready with some awesome ideas on how to show your wonderful mother that you love her on this special day.

1. Homemade Gifts

Your mother loves you and will believe that anything you make is a masterpiece. Make it sentimental with a picture of you together in a macaroni-decorated frame or remind her of the good ol’ days with a simple, hand-drawn picture – hey… she loved it when you were four…


2. Breakfast in Bed

Make it clear from the moment she wakes up that you did not forget her. Treat your mother as the queen she is and break out the french toast and waffles.


3. Brunch at the Claremont

Mother’s Day. Brunch. These two are almost synonymous, so why not go all out? You can’t go wrong with a classy brunch for your classy mother. She deserves a treat.


4. Do the Chores

If there is one thing NOT to do on Mother’s Day, it is let your mother do the chores. It is her day, and she deserves a break. Don’t wait for her to ask for your help; empty the dishwasher, clean the kitchen, and break out that vacuum.


5. Take Her to the Movies

Remind her how much you appreciate her and show her that, in fact, you are not embarrassed to be seen with her in public. Go out to the movies and enjoy some quality bonding.


6. Make Her Dinner

Recreate your mother’s favorite meal in the comfort of your own home. No matter how the meal turns out, she will appreciate the effort. Get out the nice china and set the dining-room table. This is a very special occasion for a very special person.


7. Flowers

A bouquet of flowers is always welcome on Mother’s Day. Whether they’re store bought or picked from the garden, this gesture is a great way to brighten her day and make her feel loved.

8. Don’t Forget Dessert

Never forget dessert. This day is a celebration and she deserves a sweet treat to finish off the perfect day.
