The younger generation made it difficult for me at Christmas when they requested no toys or clothes for their children for Christmas. This week as I was pondering what to give my mother for Mother’s Day, I wondered what my children would do if I said, “No flowers or candy this year.”
When my kids asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day I told them, “Breakfast in bed.” They didn’t believe me…or they don’t want to get up early!
I do not want a big breakfast of pancakes or waffles or French toast. They could make something simple and leave it on the counter with a note. Here are some ideas…
- Bagels and cream cheese with fresh fruit
- Croissants with fresh fruit
- Danish with fresh fruit
- Yogurt with fresh fruit
- Cinnamon Bread with fresh fruit
- Raisin Toast with fresh fruit
As you can tell, I don’t “drink my fruit.” I don’t drink juice, but would rather have the actual fruit: orange, apple, grapes, bananas, strawberries.
FlyLady.net recommends gifts that you don’t have to dust. Edible gifts fit the bill. Last year my children lavished me with beautiful flowers and candy. I enjoyed them and was grateful but still would rather have breakfast in bed.
