With Mother’s Day just a few short weeks around the corner, I wanted to share some ideas to make Mom feel special – no gifts required. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference and warm your heart as a Mom. Just a few weeks ago, I shared how it was so important to take time for you. With a holiday dedicated to Mom, you’ll want to make sure your special day is just perfect. Which means you’ll need to share this post with your significant other–print it now! When Mother’s Day comes around, I really look forward being able to catch a little breather, and I also look forward to the pampering. I’ll take the handmade cards and beautiful colored pictures… forget the gifts. You won’t be able to find the things I want for Mother’s Day at your local Target. For Mother’s Day it’s all about YOU and here are simple ways you can be pampered at home.

Grayson is a lover of all food. Especially when it comes to snack time and fruit and vegetables. However, he does have his favorite! I feel lucky that he loves healthy foods and it makes it easy for him to snack all day. A fruit, vegetable and cheese platter is not just a great snack tray for your tot but it’s a great lunch too!
Take a look through some of Grayson’s all-time favorite snacks!
Take 20! It just 20 easy minutes. Schedule in some you time. As moms, we often work so hard to care for others that we forget to relax. But what you often forget is that you can take just a few minutes to relax sans baby. It doesn’t have to be a full-day “off,” and you don’t even have to leave your house. Just pick a time every day to make some time for yourself. Now, this doesn’t include doing the dishes without any interruptions or taking time to put laundry away. It means taking 20 minutes to do something you enjoy! It will help you be a better mom when you take time out of your day to regroup and give yourself a few magical moments.
