Before you had kids, Mother's Day was the perfect day to celebrate and spend time your mom. But on your very first Mother's Day, you realized it you would have to share the holiday with all the other mothers in your life. You mom didn't stop being a mom because she became a grandmother. Your mother-in-law was still your husband's mom, after all. You began to think of so many reasons to have a solo Mother's Day as soon as you recognized that it wasn't going to be a day all about you, but yet another holiday spent in and out of the car visiting relatives.
But what if, just this year, you decided to spend Mother's Day all by yourself? What if you celebrated with your mom a day or two early, and then asked your spouse to take over kid duty for the whole day on Sunday, from wake up to bedtime? An entire day that can be spent doing all of the things you have been wanting to do, but don't, because you're a mom and you always put your family first. Sounds good, right?
If you need a little more convincing, here are just a few reasons that you should try out a solo Mother's Day.
