If you are a man and you made it here, congratulations, you see? Multi tasking is possible for you if you put you mind to it. If you are a woman and you made it here, nice to see you AGAIN. Happy international womens day to you my beauties.
My question to men now, do you want a get out if jail free card for the months of March, April and May?(Possibly June ). Tired of sleeping on the couch or being in the dog house? If your answer is yes then feel free to proceed and follow instructions set below.
Forget her birthday (3 days in the dog house)
Forget your anniversary (1 week in the dog house)
Forget mothers day? (Call for a young priest and an old priest ) because she is gonna kill your ass 😂😂
Mothers day is a day we love to be celebrated, we just want to hear "you are not doing bad kiddo" because believe it or not we are ALL just winging it in this game of parenthood and trying our best not to fall asleep and mess it all up. Appreciation, recognition, praise and validation is something that not only makes mothers happy, but it just helps us reset and refocus and improve in the task ahead of us (more mother hooding).
When celebrating mothers day, don't take it lightly. It is NOT enough to buy her a present and a card to show appreciation. Go over and beyond, show her she is loved, cherished and put an effort in making the day a very special day for her, also involve the kids in everything you do so they grow up appreciating their wives too.Ideas on going over and beyond - Get you kids to make hand made cards and write a letter to mummy, it will melt her heart (extra step- get them to write a poem) - Breakfast in bed will score you a few points - You don't have to arrange a mothers day lunch out, I'm personally think it is too crowded and more expensive than usual but arrange lunch/dinner. Order in or rustle up something yourself - present her with an appreciation gift please nothing generic like perfume unless she specifically asked for it. Dig for info, ask the shop assistant, make that little more effort and give more thought to the gift - Let her rest up like a queen! Take charge. Take the kids out for a good few hours so she can catch up on sleep. Arrange snacks just in case she wants to Netflix and chill with her own damn self 😂 - Beauty treatments is also a plus and will not go amiss, massage, manicure and pedicure, facials are good ones to book for her - Buy her flower from the FLORIST!!!!! none of that supermarket flowery nonsense or mail order flowers. Go to the florist and order a nice bunch - In a few words be everything to her that day, cheerleader, breakfast maker, children sorter, lunch orderer and an example to the kids showing appreciation for mummy. This is a concise list and just a few ideas but you know best how your significant other feels love, make her feel special and let your kiddos see you do this. Send my cheque in the mail will ya? 😂 . Below is a little outline and ideas of last minute gifts that can be purchased so you can still salvage this.
