Serve Mom a fab breakfast in bed
Let Mom sleep in
I know, I know: You’re wicked eager to show off your handiwork. That’s all well and good, but waking Mom up at the crack of dawn will not make for a happy mother. Get up early, just in case she rises with the sun, but let her sleep in as late as she wants. It is her day, after all.
Don’t make a mess
There’s nothing worse than enjoying a tasty meal…and then coming downstairs to realize that you have to clean it up, too. If you have sibs, split up the duties. Somebody slices fruit, somebody mans the toaster…and one of you washes while the other dries.
Make up a tray to bring to mama’s bedroom. A few blossoms in a teeny vase or a pile of cards will make Mom smile. Tip from the pros: Placing a folded paper towel beneath the plate and her cup of coffee or glass of juice will keep things from sliding.
Make enough to share
