What Mom really wants for Mother’s Day
By Aimee Heckel
Win Mother’s Day this year, and get Mom exactly what she really wants.
We asked our readers what they truly want for Mother’s Day, and here’s what they said. May you be inspired — or scared. Whatever you do, get busy yesterday!
“A vacation on the beach on my own. No kids. No husband.” – Mel, 34
“A massage. A bubble bath and Ingrid Michaelson’s new CD. Quiet time in a tea house. But mostly a massage.” – Rebecca, 35
“To visit my girls in Colorado and have an epic weekend at some fabulous mountain spa. If I can’t have that, then it’s either camera gear or a nice dinner.” – Molly, 35
“A day where I can act like I’m not a mother. Even just for a few hours. Maybe a spa day.” – Rae, 38
“Oh geez, where do I start? My husband is sending me to a spa. And by that, I mean I set it up and he’s paying for it. I need a massage so bad. On the other hand, I want my disgusting carpet and couch professionally cleaned!” – Heather, 26
“I want a spa day and staycation at a lovely hotel, lots of wine, no dog pee on my carpet and no dirty dishes anywhere to be seen. I also really want someone to install my new chandelier in my 30-foot-tall living room. And someone to dust the baseboards. And dresses. Many new dresses from Anthropologie. And new lipstick from Mac. And someone to straighten my hair for me. And a lot of sleep. Probably a new episode of ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ I’d like someone to plant a ton of lilac bushes in my front yard and for God to make them all bloom precisely when I wake up very late in the morning on my birthday, which is incidentally also Mother’s Day.” – Aimee, 34
