We tend to take mums for granted most of the time so it’s good to remember them sometimes. Here are five other reasons why it’s worth remembering your mum on Mother's day:
1. She’s taught you all you know about life’s basics, from getting dressed and feeding yourself, to handling day-to-day things in life.
2. She’s always there for you. She’ll always have a sympathetic ear to hear the latest drama you’re having with your bff, or the goss about your crush.
3. She’s the one who helps find your missing shoes/earrings/mobile, puts up with your mood swings, and who always has time to answer your questions. All with a calm smile – even if it is through gritted teeth!
4. Your mum looks out for you. It sometimes seems like she's being over protective, but she just wants you to be safe. It can be a bit frustrating if you and your mum don’t see eye-to-eye about things when all you want to do is make your own decisions. It’s all totally normal and your mum probably had exactly the same with her mum. It helps to remember that when you want to scream at her!
5. Your mum’s love is unconditional. Whatever you want to do and however you decide to do things, your mum will always love you and make you feel special.
So on Mother's day, do something to make her feel special. It can be anything from making her breakfast to buying flowers, or even taking her on a trip to a spa. Or you can do something helpful around the house – like offering to do the ironing for a week or taking your younger brother to school. She'll appreciate it and it shows her that you care.
