Mother's Day ideas for wife...

Postby Defence21 on Thu May 02, 2013 11:57 am

I'm wracking my brain here thinking of what I can do for the wife to celebrate her second mother's day. I have zero gift ideas and zero plans for the day. Anyone with experience have any ideas of how I can make this day special for her (other than taking the baby and letting her relax for the day)?

For Christmas I got my wife a night at a hotel by herself. She was able to relax. No baby, no need to worry about dinner, she could just rest and relax. She loved it.

Maybe my wife is different, but it's mothers day, she likes to be with the kids all day. Take care of breakfast and write a nice letter of how wonderful she is and stand clear. Good day

Definitely the way my wife is. She doesn't want time away from our daughter -- she wants to spend the day together as a family.

The letter sounds great...and maybe I'll get her something she really wants for around the house.
