Mother’s Day Wishes: 1. “It’s okay, you can sleep in”
Make mum smile by saying one (or more) of these 10 things this Mother’s Day!
It’s one of the mother’s day wishes you can try! Let mum know that she can sleep in and get up whenever she likes. After the years of waking up at the crack of dawn to prepare breakfast, wake the kids up and send the kids to school — give her a break by letting her snooze without the alarm clock ringing.
2. “I’ve cooked breakfast”
Once mum wakes up from her beauty sleep she will probably be hungry. Cook mum her favourite breakfast so she has the energy to enjoy the exciting day you have planned for her this Mother’s Day!
3. “I’ll handle the housework today”
After the years she spent cleaning up after us, why not give mum a break and take over for the day? That will mean making the bed, sweeping and mopping the floor, washing the dishes, doing the laundry, feeding the pets, watering the plants, taking out the trash… The list goes on! It’s amazing how mum managed all of this all these years!
4. “Buy whatever you want!”
What mother (and woman) would not want to hear these words? Take your mum to her favourite store and let her choose her own Mother’s Day present!

5. “I Remember…”
Reminisce about the good old days… Talk about the precious memories you hold close to your heart.
Let your mum know that she’s important and loved by selecting a special memory and reliving it with her. Choose a memory that your mum wouldn’t expect you to remember, it is sure to melt her heart!
6. “Let’s go for a family holiday”
When was the last time you went on a family holiday? Whisk your mum away for a family holiday, let your mum spend quality time with all her children, grandchildren (if any) and other family members.
Make it a family reunion by inviting your mum’s parents, siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles. She is sure to love seeing all the people she loves on Mother’s Day!
7. “I’m sorry, you were right”
Mothers often feel guilty when they punish or say ‘no’ to their child. Mums want the best for their children and sometimes that requires some tough love (which all kids hate!). At the time, we may not have understood why our mothers were so mean and hurtful, but as we grow older we begin to realize that what they did was because they loved us.
So tell your that you’re sorry and that she was right (guys, all women love to hear that they are right), so that she realizes that you finally understand why she made all the choices she did. It is important for your mum to know that you don’t hold anything against her and that you appreciate all that she has done for you to keep you safe.
8. “You are beautiful”
As the years go by you will hear your mum complain about how she’s getting old — even when she’s still the beautiful and lively woman you know and love! So be sure to tell your mother how you think she’s beautiful no matter how old she is.

9. “Thanks mum”
Appreciation is a great way to express your love to your mother. After all the years of you crying, shouting and complaining (especially during those angsty teenage years) and the days she spent cooking, cleaning and driving you places — you should remind your mother how you’re grateful for all the things she has done for you.
Thank her for always being there for you when you needed a shoulder to cry on. Thank her for picking you up and comforting you when you fell. Thank her for loving you endlessly and for providing a good and safe home. We have a lot to be thankful for, make sure your mum knows it.
10. “I love you”
No matter how old you are, this phrase is what every mother wants to hear. Love is the reason your mum gave birth and cared for you. So even if you’re no longer living at home, don’t forget to visit or call up your mummy to tell her how much you love her.
These words, whether or not they are said consciously, mean the world to your mother. With you saying that you love her, she will know that she has succeeded in being a good mother — making all those tough times worth it!
