On Mother’s Day, you might make your mom a nice meal, buy her flowers, or spend the morning helping with chores around the house. But when all the excitement is said and done, what can you do the rest of the day? Luckily, you can turn to Lifetime for Mother’s Day movie lineup to enjoy some quality chill time at home with mom.

While there are tons of Mother’s Day TV episodes, the holiday doesn’t really get many celebratory movies. And though Lifetime’s movies scheduled to air on May 9 may not be about Mother’s Day specifically, they’re entertaining and full of drama. There’s a reason why Lifetime is calling this marathon “Mom’s Guilty Pleasure.” So, after a morning full of sweet gifts and lovey-dovey sentiments, you can still spend the rest of the day with your mom doing something fun.

Lifetime will begin airing its lineup at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 9, which will continue until later in the evening. And Lifetime Movie Network will air eight different movies about moms starting bright and early at 6 a.m. So she will definitely be able to find the perfect movie to watch on Sunday. This gives you more than enough time to break out some wine, cheese, and popcorn, while you cozy onto the couch with mom.
