Ideas for Mother’s Day 2020

Sydney Campbell, Senior Design Editor

Mothers: the women who know us like no other, the women who instill the values that we will keep for the rest of our lives, and the women who created us and continue to care for us until the very end. Let us be honest — they deserve the world! Mother’s day is the one day of the year strictly dedicated to honoring moms and all that they do, and this mother’s day is one we’ll all remember. 

As shops and restaurants here in Miami-Dade remain closed for indoor seating, you can’t treat your mom to a dinner out, but you can still treat her to her favorite meal from her favorite restaurant from the comfort of her home. Ask her what she wants or surprise her with one of her known favorites. A cheaper alternative to this is cooking breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three) for your mom on her special day. You can do this with your siblings or alone. 

Another easy way to make sure your mom enjoys her Mother’s Day is to eliminate all chores and household duties she would usually perform. Make sure that you, your dad or your siblings are washing the dishes, folding any laundry and doing all the household duties your mom would usually do — allow her to rest and not have to worry about anything. 

Given the current circumstances, at this point your mom has been stuck in the house with her entire family for two months now. She still loves you, but because of this, she might want a break and a day to herself in her room to watch T.V. or do whatever she pleases. 

Essentially, just make sure that you are  giving your mom what she wants and that you are  allowing her to relax and spend the day how she pleases.
