Three ways to make Mother's Day fabulous

Kids choresA bit of help around the house, family time and happy hour with the girls can make the perfect Mother's Day. If you are wondering how to make the day special, consider these options.

Have a honey-do list

Start the day with Mom calling the shots. Is there a project she's been wanting to tackle? A closet that needs organizing? A flowerbed that needs weeding? Even something as simple as a load of laundry that needs finishing? All she has to do is ask, and the rest of the family is on it. No whining allowed.

Celebrate with brunch

Enjoy time with friends

Nothing beats a little girl time after a day with the kids, so a girls night would make a Mother's Day perfect for most moms. If you can't fit girl time into your Mother's Day plans, squeeze in a girls night on Mother's Day eve. At the very least, carve out an hour or so in the afternoon to visit a nearby spa for a pedicure with your besties.
