When You Can’t Get Together
Mother’s Day Brunch is traditional for many. If you can’t be together on Mother’s Day, put a twist on tradition (and get help from technology.)
Have brunch brought right to Mom’s doorstep. Check with her local favorite to see if they deliver, or try a top-rated food delivery app. Put on fancy clothes and hats for a social-distancing video conference – but maybe wait until after eating to turn on the cameras.
If food isn’t your thing, try a watch party – there are apps to help you sync up and chat while watching a movie or show together – or use screen sharing in a zoom call – the key is to share an experience, and hopefully some laughs.
When Togetherness Is All You've Got
If you’re lucky enough to be at home with Mom, there’s a way to make the day special for little cost.
Scavenger hunts are fun and require only paper, pen, and some creativity.
The prize can be as simple as a home-made card or, if you’ve been together a bit much lately, give Mom some time to herself.
You may be able to make some homemade bath bombs with things around the house, or cue up a calming playlist to soothe her nerves.
When Mother’s Day Hurts
We all have mothers, but we don’t all have mothers we can celebrate with.
If you find this day tough, ask yourself how you can help someone else who may feel the same. Getting out of our own heads and into action helping someone who needs our attention not only eases your pain, but brings joy to someone else.
Consider making this a day of volunteering, reach out and call a friend or a mother you respect, or treat yourself to some self-care, a brunch, or a scavenger hunt of your own!
