Mother's Day Traditions

"Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
I'm happy I have a mom
As super as you."

This is the poem that appeared in the  homemade card my five year old gave me for Mother's Day yesterday. Isn't it sweet?

I love Mother's Day, both memories of what I used to do for my mother when I was growing up, and the things my husband and children now do for me. It's fun to watch a holiday like Mother's Day come full circle so that the daughter is now the mother.

So now I'm curious about the rest of you. Does anyone have a great Mother's Day tradition to share? A unique surprise you got one year? I'd love to trade some stories.

For us, every year our church does a Mother's Day potluck where the men have to make the food, set up for potluck, and clean up the kitchen afterwards. It's a fun day and an especially nice change of pace for me (since I'm usually in charge of running the potlucks and cleaning up).

How about the rest of you?


  1. Hey Naomi!

    Happy Mother's Day! What a sweet card from your little one. I can't wait until my little guys can write cards for me. :)

    1. I bet you'll be saving those cards for years to come. Thanks for stopping by, Melanie!
