The Perfect Mother's Day for the Homeschooling Mom | Making Her Mama
The Perfect Mother’s Day for the Homeschooling Mom

Mother’s Day is coming up and for many families, the children make crafts and cards at school to bring home to mom.  But, what happens in homeschooling families where more often than not mom is with the kids the majority of the time.  Does she get the kids to make her something?  Do they do special activities?   What do homeschooling moms really want for Mother’s Day?

I asked several different homeschooling moms what their perfect mother’s day would be.  Ready dad’s and kids?  It’s time to take notes!

 

What Homeschooling Moms Want for Mother’s Day

 

I would give anything to be able to spend a day with all my children … together
~Gloria

 

All I want for Mother's Day is my kids to remember they also have a father who can get them juice! Click To Tweet.

That sounds about right.  In all seriousness, I think my best Mother’s Day ever was when my husband told me to go out and shop or something by myself (I bought a new book and sat and read and had a coffee for like 3 hours). When I got home he and the kids had cleaned the house, and my husband cooked supper. Then we all watched a movie together. It was awesome!
~Angie

 

I don’t have a perfect mother’s day, but what I always hope for is to be “off duty” as much as possible. I don’t need gifts and flowers but I appreciate a little break from planning, cooking and cleaning, *without* having to ask for it!
~Sheila

 

Brunch out with all the mama’s in our family and a big honking nap. You know, the kind where I wake up at 4pm and go…ahhh I think I’ll just lie here until I’m too hungry or have to pee and THEN get up. Oh and a box of dark chocolates.
~Sonja

 

Some money to buy a new plant, or two, and then planting it, doing some weeding. Oh, and perfect weather. Sunny, 75 degrees, and a slight breeze.
~Michelle

 

A picnic day on the beach! No technology, no messy house distractions, a meal organized by someone other than me. Just me with my family. And the weather must cooperate. Then after we have had SOOO much fun GETTING ALONG and laughing all day and I couldn’t possibly imagine it getting any better, I would come home to a clean, tidy home and a glass of wine. I don’t need much…

~Stephanie

 

Mother’s Day is a great time to refresh and recharge

 

So what do most homeschooling mom’s want?  It’s not presents (though homemade ones are cherished),

or flowers (though handpicked bouquets are the best)

or anything fancy!

We want:

  • to spend time with our families
  • to have some time to ourselves
  • a clean house (that we didn’t have to orchestrate)
  • food that isn’t prepared by us
  • to not have to make any decisions about what to do for Mother’s Day

I am so grateful to be connected to such a great group of like-minded mamas who really just enjoy the simple things in life.

  • I love this, the simple things in life are definitely the best. I particularly love the buying a book and reading it over coffee for a few hours idea! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza xx

      So true hey! Nothing beats just a few precious moments for yourself. I find it doesn’t take much and then I feel refreshed and ready to pick up the pace again! What kind of book would you choose?

  • Sounds about right! My day was pretty good that way. I did clean the bathroom, but my hubby did the dishes and my hubby and daughter made supper. I also got to take a nap. Pretty good day overall.

    • Nadine says:

      YEAH! That sounds like an awesome day Rosanna! Especially not having to do the dishes. I think I log more hours on that chore daily than any other one! And a nap to boot! So glad you had a wonderful Mother’s Day

  • Are you a lover of #books? Do you #Homeschool using literature or read aloud? Audiobooks are a great way to get in more stories! We love listening to them in the car or while folding laundry! Right now if you sign up for a 30 days free trial you get to download 2 #free audiobooks!!

  • I picked a new #potatoes from our garden! It was partially pruning as the plants have become enormous and the vines are starting to sprawl the pathways in the garden. But.... it was also part curiosity to see if there was really anything growing. We ate some of these #russianbluepotatoes pan fried in #butter! Yummy!!! There is nothing like real fresh food!!! Do you grow potatoes? What's your favourite way to enjoy them? Any tips for my harvest?  And PS this is not a sneaky pregnancy announcement as someone asked LOL I don't have twin spuds growing in my belly!!!!
  • Come they told him..... are you quietly singing parumpapumpum? This is my newest little #drummerboy ! It looks like we made 4 tiny human #drummers. I'll have to try and get it on video because this lil guy has got the groove and dance moves to boot!  Do you have any #musicians in your family?? #drummerslife
