Becoming a mom gives you a whole new appreciation for your mother. As a mom of little kids, it's safe to assume that the only thing you want for Mother's Day is some time alone. But if you put yourself in your mom's shoe — when your babies are grown up — all you'll want is to spend some time with them. Luckily, you can give both you and your mom the perfect gift this year simply by choosing one of these movies to watch with your mom this Mother's Day.
If I could go back in time, I would remake all of those crappy breakfast-in-bed's my brothers and I threw together at the last moment and give my mom something a little more special. Now that I'm older, I would give a lot to curl up on the couch, hot chai's in hand, and watch a classic film with my mom. No interruptions. No toddlers. Just me, my mama, and a movie.
If you're lucky enough to live close to your mom, take advantage of it. Gift her with a special "girls day" of snacking, relaxing, and movie watching. Chances are, it will mean much more to her (and to you) than any store-bought card or bouquet of flowers.
