On Mother's Day, flowers are sweet and breakfast in bed is yummy. But if you really want to thrill M-O-M, take these 5 steps:
- Wash your hands without being asked at all those important hand-washing moments (after the bathroom, before eating, etc.).
- Make your bed, but don't stop there. Make HER bed.
- Don't fight with your brothers or sisters. Or, if you must argue, do it quietly and don't involve mom.
- Let her sleep in.
- Make her laugh. Tell a joke, do a silly dance, or ask her to remember what you were like when you were little. Did you ever wear your underpants on your head? We thought so!
