Weekend Watch: Ode to mama

Filed Under:

It's Mother's Day... and boy do you mothers deserve the five-star treatment. Pass this along to your family if they need some suggestions for honoring and pampering you this weekend (and trust me, they do):

If you haven't yet selected a gift, shop to it. Pronto. Something handmade by the children is also a nice touch. Click here for gifts you must NOT give.

No cooking, no cleanup. Take mama out to brunch. (And to minimize crowd-stress, go extra-early or make a reservation!)

Plan a low-key outing to enjoy Washington's springtime blooms (and get a nice little photo opp of mom with her kiddos).

Last but not least, give her some uninterrupted sleep. The greatest gift of all! You can even send her one of these humorous e-cards from the Sleep Foundation to let her know that rest, sweet rest, is coming her way.

Happy day, one and all!
