What Women Want...For Mother's Day (From the Man Who Knows Everything About Women)
I have made it my life's study to learn everything there is to know about women and what they want. As an astute observer, I have completely dialed in on what makes them tick, and will soon be publishing a book on the subject.
Some things women want are obvious, like a slow roll in my PT Cruiser to a romantic Early Bird Dinner at Denny's. And then there are the more subtle things, like offering her the first drink out of the last Keystone Light.
Whatever the situation, I have you covered. And, as a means of promoting my upcoming book, I am offering some of my advice completely free.
Let's start with Mother's Day:
One thing that every Mom in the world wants more of is time. We all do. There's just never enough time to do everything that needs to be done, let alone things you want to do. Mother's Day should be at least one occasion where she can have the entire day to do as much as she can of what she wants.
So, what are the things she wants? Not only am I going to tell you, but I'm going to help you make sure she gets the most of it.
First, however, much of what women want is predicated on what they DON'T want. Things she does not want on Mother's Day include:
She does not want to cook.
She does not want to clean or do laundry
She does not want the cooking, cleaning, laundry to simply wait for her until the next day.
She does not want the daily routine.
These things will factor into what the rest of the family does to make it the perfect Mother's Day.
BEGIN THE DAY
Flowers and cards are nice, but what really says "I love and appreciate you" are actions. Mom would probably be much happier to have her car washed than to receive a bouquet.
Things should begin the night before Mother's Day, as Mom really wants to have the good, long, relaxing night's sleep that she never gets.
She won't be able to do this unless she is convinced that she has absolutely no obligations to wake up to. Let her know that you've got it all taken care of.
Let her sleep as late as she wishes. You've got things to do anyway.
First thing is to make breakfast. We don't know what time she is getting up, so cut up some fruit/berries and keep them in the fridge. Yogurt, Muffins...anything that can keep and be brought out quickly, yet still present well. Bright Spring flowers like Tulips or Daffodils on the table are a nice touch.
Next, get going on some chores...
Remember that she's sleeping. Do things that won't wake her up. If your washer and dryer are somewhere that she won't hear, do some laundry. Just make sure to have it all staged outside the bedroom the night before. You can probably do just about anything other than vacuuming. But, I would choose something that is very visible and obvious once completed.
Kids can have their rooms clean. Dad's can have some of the Honey Do's turned into Honey Done's.

Once Mom is up, everyone sit down and have breakfast together. Tell her the day is hers to do as she pleases, and that everyone will adjust accordingly, whether she wants to spend the day out and about, or lay around in a pair of sweats all day.
If Mom wants to go out and do something, then the schedule is pretty much up to her. If she wants to stay home, then continue to get things done for her throughout the morning. But, later in the day...
What Mom would not love a Spa Day?
Spas are luxurious, pampering, relaxing and...expensive. One option is to give her a spa day at home. In some ways it can be just as, or even more relaxing not having to drive to and from the spa.
How do you do it? Well, first you make sure the bathroom is hospital clean. If you have room for it, place a basket of fresh herbs by the tub. You can buy planted herb baskets at most superstores, or you can buy fresh cut ones.
Next you set up spa music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X18IVUZp0XU&list=RDEMNH9J0FdrvHuxBj7U5neOig&start_radio=1
While Mom is soaking and relaxing away all the cares of the world, it's time for you to start dinner. If you have little to no experience in the kitchen, this is not a problem. Cooking is not as difficult as you may think.
Here are some easy recipe ideas for even a beginner:
Once dinner is finished and you've done the dishes, the night is beginning to wind down. End it with something out of the ordinary, something outside any routine you might have fallen into, something that is all about her.
Well, there you have it! If you follow the advice of the Man Who Knows What Women Want's step-by-step instructions, I guarantee this will be a Mother's Day she will love, and won't soon forget.
Oh...I almost forgot. If you do wine with dinner, splurge and get the stuff that comes in a bottle. It's the little things that count.
