What A Mom Wants. What A Mom Needs!

Mother's Day is here - officially! But if you're like me, a little reminder to Dad and the kids can make a big difference in getting the Mom's Day you deserve!

There was a time when I loved being surprised by my family - loved the homemade gifts,flowers and brunch. Not so much now!

These days I'm a bit jaded and I have no problem asking for what I want and need from my husband and kids!

For example: clean bedrooms (really clean); a day without driving my kids anywhere; a good meal (probably steaks on the grill) from my husband - are some of the things I want this year.

As for my needs: a spa package (massage,mani/pedi); a new handbag (but I want to pick it out); and a gift card to my favorite store!

I realize it may sound selfish. But I'm OK with that! In fact - I love it!
