Do holidays ever sneak up on you?
Especially the holidays where you have to ship gifts or send cards. I'm SO BAD at this. So bad.
Is it just me?
Even when I try to be ahead, I fail miserably. It's not that I don't care. I do! Sometimes I wish we could do away with all the holidays that require gifts and thought.
My favorite special days go something like this:
Me scrolling on Facebook and everywhere I look it says, “Hey! It's National Pizza Day!”. So then I can go, “Hey, kids! It's National Pizza Day! Let's have pizza for dinner and watch a movie.” Then, I'm the best Mom EVER.
Little preparation = Awesome Mom
If you're more like me, I wanted to give you a heads up. You know, a little FYI.
Mother's Day is coming up. Are you ready? Sure you could hop on Amazon and have something shipped, or you could check out these creative and handmade Mother's Day gift ideas that your mom would love. These are pretty awesome handmade Mother's Day gift ideas. You might already have some of the supplies at your house.
But remember, Amazon is okay too. At least with Amazon, it won't sit on your counter for months waiting to go to the post office. Not that that happens at my house…
Hey. This is a no judgment zone.
