There are so many mothers these days. Between moms, grand-moms, step-moms, step-grandmoms, moms-in-law, step moms-in-law, surrogate moms, egg donors moms, birth moms, and Heather has two moms, make this day special with choices tailored to your mom or moms.
If my own mom were here she would be so happy to see me featured in GoBankingRates.com advice to mothers on saving money bit.ly/1Ihv9ad. She would also be laughing at how it was her advice that eventually seeped in and made me into The Frugal Diva. As a Nature Loving Mom, a day at Descanso Gardens would have been her idea of perfection.
Here are some ideas for other types of moms on Mother’s Day
Art Lover Mom reads the Calendar section first, collects catalogs, and thought your first grade drawings were influenced by Kandinsky. Take her to the local art museum and have a bite at the cafe.
American History Buff Mom knows the name of every U.S. President, fact checked your homework, and easily quotes what happened on this day fifty years ago. Head out to the a historical site in your city and have a picnic nearby.
Environmental Mom recycles everything, knows global warming is not a hot flash, and uses both sides of the printer paper. Spend the day helping out at a beach clean up or food bank.
Design Mom knows what is the new black this year, how to use Photoshop to make your holiday pictures more interesting, and only sees French films. Take an architectural tour of your city.
Sports Mom was always at little league and knows all the baseball stats. Take her out to the ball game for some peanuts and cracker jacks.
Spiritual Mom stays flexible, eats vegetarian, and believes that meditation will solve all your problems. Take her to a yoga class and then to the newest vegan spot. Sit outside afterwards and chant OM (almost spells MOM).
