5 Ways to Make Mom's Day

5 Ways to Make Mom's Day

On Mother's Day, flowers are sweet and breakfast in bed is yummy. But if you really want to thrill M-O-M, take these 5 steps:

  1. Wash your hands without being asked at all those important hand-washing moments (after the bathroom, before eating, etc.).
  2. Make your bed, but don't stop there. Make HER bed.
  3. Don't fight with your brothers or sisters. Or, if you must argue, do it quietly and don't involve mom.
  4. Let her sleep in.
  5. Make her laugh. Tell a joke, do a silly dance, or ask her to remember what you were like when you were little. Did you ever wear your underpants on your head? We thought so!
