Where I’d Take Your Mom For Mother’s Day in Lansing
Mother's Day is this Sunday and I'm ready to celebrate. Although my moms have passed away I will still celebrate my amazing wife who is an outstanding mom. I will also celbrate my son's mom too. Moms are the best and they have bigger stones than any of us dads will ever have.
I have given you plenty of ideas for Mother's Day, plan ahead and check them out below.
I've been a last minute kind of guy when it comes to gifts for most of my life. As I have gotten older I have started to plan ahead, finally. The feeling of panic on the eve or morning of Mother's Day because you didn't go shopping or make reservations is not a good feeling, I've been there. I always felt like I failed.
As far as gifts go, listen to your mom. It's okay to pay attention to the things she says or perhaps she points out a blanket at one of her favorite stores and says she would really like that. Take note of that and surprise mom with a gift she has mentioned in the past. It shows her you pay attention. Lord knows that she's been paying attention to you since the day she found out she was pregnant with you.
If you dropped the ball this year, pick it up and run. You still have time. If you fail I'll be happy to take your mom out for a nice meal or experience. Here's what I would do for your mom.
