What mom really wants for Mother’s Day.

Do you ever wonder what moms really want for Mother’s Day? Honestly, it depends on the mom. There are many camps to fall in to.

What your mom really wants for Mother's Day - Mother's Day Gift Ideas from BJ's Wholesale ClubThe:

“I want to spend my day with my family” camp.

“I want to spend my day relaxing with some wine, a good book, and a bubble bath” camp.

“I want breakfast in bed and a clean house” camp.

“I just want a card” camp.

“I want an awesome gift” camp.

“I want to spend my day AWAY from my family, all by myself in a hotel, with room service and very comfy beds” camp.

just to name a few.

I fall into that last one.

I love my girls, but I’ve had about as much family time as I can handle right now. I work from home. My husband was working out-of-state for five months, and is now living and working in Raleigh, so I’ve been home 24/7 with my 5 daughters (well, except when they are at school) since the end of November. I really need some time to myself.

Because I’m here on my own that dream will have to wait. So when my girls wanted to know what I would like for Mother’s Day I told them a clean house. They thought I was joking.

What mom really wants for Mother’s Day.After a bit of back and forth we decided the girls could cook me dinner and clean up after themselves when they were done. We made our weekly trip to BJ’s Wholesale Club and picked up some essentials… paper towels, toilet paper, dog food, snacks, etc. And I found the perfect items for the girls to make my dinner. A Bertolli Shrimp, Asparagus & Penne classic skillet meal, Fresh Express fresh herb salad, strawberries, raspberries, and a half gallon of half and half so the girls could make homemade ice cream with fresh berries for dessert.

I also picked up a bottle of Prosecco for me to enjoy.

It was a gourmet dinner, on a budget price. And so simple. My 11 yo cooked the pasta, the 8 yo prepared the salad and all the girls made ice cream.

Dinner was delicious. I sat on the front porch by myself and ate in silence. It was wonderful.

I’m hoping we can have a repeat performance on Mother’s Day. Only this time, the girls need to clean up after themselves.
