When you think of Mother's Day activities, the first thing that undoubtedly comes to mind is breakfast in bed. I'm not sure exactly how or when the tradition of serving mom her morning meal while she's still under the covers began, but at this point it's practically obligatory. And of course a tray with (slightly burnt) toast and a dandelion from the backyard is bound to touch mom's heart just as much as a gourmet brunch, but why not find some creative breakfast in bed ideas for Mother's Day morning this year?
It's not all about the food, after all. In fact, depending on the ages of her kids and how involved they insist on being in the cooking process, plenty of moms out there are probably preparing themselves for the worst (e.g., pretending to enjoy overcooked scrambled eggs with lots of pieces of shell for added crunch). But even if the breakfast itself isn't going to win any culinary prizes, the presentation can still totally make mom's day. The point is to help her feel special, lift her spirits, and (ideally) give her a little extra time to relax.
Whatever you do, just make sure that mom is not in any way responsible for any post-breakfast clean-up. A day off from dishes could be one of the best gifts of all.
