Is it just me or does everyone think mums are surprisingly simple to please on Mother’s Day?

Is it just me or does everyone think mums are surprisingly simple to please on Mother’s Day?

Sunday is all about time with the kids. Some of us want a little more time and some of us want a little less.

I did a facebook poll and confessed my dream.  I want my kids to be excited about a family lunch. I don’t care if the excitement is completely fake – I just want everyone dressed and ready to go, with no cajoling from me.

I asked some other mums what they want, check for your mum’s name.

Jenny: I just want their time.  I want a nice breakfast or lunch that I haven’t cooked and anything else is a bonus.

Sue: I want my oldest son to remove the headphones from his ears for the duration of breakfast.  And my youngest son to not to continually ask to play on my phone for the same amount of time.

Terri: I want a day where I don’t have to make any decisions. Nothing expensive or extravagant, just one whole day where I don’t need to decide what we do, where we go, or what we are having for dinner.

Clare: My sons are taking me to lunch. No biggie I suppose, but they’ve thought about it themselves and pre-booked. That has made my day already.

Shannon: I want a sleep in and breaky and cuddles. But what I really want is the girls, my husband and I to tidy the front yard.

Jacqui: Just a relaxing day with my little angel……and some Mac perfume

Tina: Yes, I too would just like my kids to do something with me and bloody well enjoy it! A big bushwalk and picnic lunch would be perfect.

Fiona: Just to have my teen boys sit with me, no devices, no eye-rolling or mean comments, just half an hour of real conversation. And a hug. I really would love more awkward boy hugs in my life. Crying a little right now.

So lots of mums want more time with their kids, just not the mums with toddlers.

Poppy: I would like a day in a hotel room alone with the curtains closed to sleep and lay in bed and watch movies with my husband for 24 hours.

Nicole: A real sleep in, not the type where you are listening to squabbling in the background but quiet sleep with no alarm.

Brooke: Just a few hours to myself.  No one to talk to, clean up after or feed.

Alana: I just want to go to the toilet by myself.

There were multiple requests for no fighting, no refereeing, just homemade presents and a day without screaming or tantrums.

But my very favourite was Sharon from Conondale:  I just want a new pizza tray.

Happy Mother’s Day to all.  Good luck.
