No need to sugar coat it — being a mother is one of the toughest jobs that you or a woman in your life will ever have.
A mom would never gradually transition into motherhood and have appropriate training the way she might do with other roles in her life. She would need to survive serious sleep deprivation in the first few months, struggling to balance parenting tasks with maintaining a social life since a full hour of uninterrupted time would be a super luxury after a baby was born. Kids would test her boundaries, and throw toddler tantrums. Right when the mother thinks the first few years of stress and exhaustion are over, there come the tremendous physiological changes and mood swings when her child slowly becomes a teenager.
Yes, being a mom is fantastic and your mom or any other woman mostly wouldn’t change it for the world. But for all the tough and amazing things she has done, she should be treated like a queen on Mother's Day this year (and well, every single day after that).
Planning ahead and taking the DIY route for a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift is the best. But if you’re pressed for time when shopping for Mother’s Day gifts, we've got you covered.
