I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for MetLife. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
It's almost Mother's Day...you know what that means, right? Time to post HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY on my mom's Facebook wall!
Instead of texting your mom for Mother's Day - or posting on her Facebook wall - why not celebrate the old fashioned way and actually go see mom and give her a big hug? Or if your mom doesn't live near you, send her a thoughtful Mother's Day card and call her and have a real conversation on Mother's Day this year!
My mom and I were chatting this morning about how we are going to celebrate Mother's Day this year. We usually drive down to my parent's timeshare in Key Largo for Mother's Day weekend, but they gave it their partner this year. So we are planning a big girl's morning out brunch - just my mom and her four daughters - and my dad is going to watch my nieces and nephews. Then on Sunday, we are all going to my parent's house down the street for a big Mother's Day brunch that my mom is cooking for us girls.
I know, I know...I feel horrible about making mom cook on her special day! My sister is going to help and I am going to bring along a few dishes too. It's going to be more like a big family potluck, and all of the kids will be coming along too.
How do you plan to celebrate Mother's Day this year?
MetLife has created the #SocialBlackout movement, which challenges everyone to log off of social media on Mother’s Day (May 12th) and give Mom the time and attention she deserves!
You can check out the MetLife Facebook page for more information about the #Socialblackout - I'd love to hear how you plan to turn off social media and focus on your mom!
