Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate mothers. Whether your little one has arrived or you are still expecting, Mother’s Day is a day to enjoy. Here we take a look at ways you can enjoy your first Mother’s Day.
Decide who will take the lead? Do you usually make the plans at home or does your partner take the lead? Decide who will plan the day or discuss together what you would like to do on the day, so you both know what to expect and it isn’t left up to chance, after all, your first Mother’s Day is a day to remember and so it is important to make it an occasion.
If you are usually the main cook in the house, then enjoy some time off. This could be a delicious brunch, takeaway or your favourite restaurant. It could even be your partner takes over for the day. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, just different and nice for you to let someone else feed the family for once.
Enjoy a day full of pampering. Book yourself into a spa or enjoy a bubble bath with candles and relaxing music. Spend some time doing something you haven’t managed to do for ages or just put your feet up. This is a day for you so enjoy a little RnR.
Get trigger happy
There are likely to be plenty of photos of your little one but very few of you enjoying time with your baby. Ask your partner or other family member to take plenty of photos of you enjoying your first Mother’s Day with your son or daughter so you can look back in years to come.
Celebrate with your mum
Why not extend your Mother’s Day celebrations to include your mother and even your partner’s mum? It can be a day full of memories of when you were little and the similarities between you, your partner and your baby. If you are still expecting, then it is a great opportunity to share the excitement with your baby’s grandparents and getting some valuable advice.
Baby not arrived yet?
Why not write a letter to your unborn child, an open letter from mummy with love and date it the 22nd March 2020. You could start by telling them how excited you are at become their mummy and how you are feeling about their arrival. You could also tell them about all the things you are looking forward to sharing with them, their first steps, first word, their first tooth and even milestones as they grow up.
You can tell them all your hopes and dreams, life’s lessons you wish you knew, what is important to you and all the things you want them to experience as they grow up.
