Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day is coming up. Chances are your wife would be perfectly happy to receive a hand written note, homemade breakfast in bed with sloppy pancakes made by a 7 year old, construction paper "coupons" good for a half assed foot massage or any of these gifts.

The Scentsy warmer your wife really wants, but can't bring herself to spend $40 on because she knows you'd roll your eyes and say, "I can't smell anything".
Some awesome "Mom" jewelry from an Etsy store. Not some awesome "Mom" jewelry from Walmart.

Over priced Essie nail polish. Whimsy color name= happy mom.
A gift card to Aldo. Aldo does not sell children's shoes, so she will not be tempted to buy the children anything.
 Here's the thing: Mother's day is all about celebrating how much Mothers do for the family. So please, when shopping for your sweet wife, try to remember that she is a good mother because she constantly thinks about all y'all first. Like when she's:
  •  buying the $.99 bottle of off brand Glade instead of the Scentsy warmer
  •  creating her own Origami Owl necklace online, but never actually purchasing it
  •  wearing the clear Wet and Wild because she knows her hurried Essie polish job will just chip when she scrubs the toilet
  • only walking past Aldo on the way to a Gymboree clearance sale every.damn.time.

My husband is on Facebook, feel free to forward this blog posting to him..
