Disclaimer: for some of us, mother's day is sad and hard, and if I could reach through this computer and give you a hug, I would DO IT.  Do something nice for yourself today.  Get yourself something (or 5 somethings) from this gift guide. Eat a lot of chocolate. Get a massage. Know that you aren't alone. Truly.

If you are a mom, have a mom, or just know a mom you want to celebrate, then use this gift guide LIKE A BOSS. 

If you're a dad reading this, allow me to share some Mother's Day truth: The mother in your life DOES NOT WANT TO GET UP AND MAKE BREAKFAST. SHE DOES NOT WANT TO GET ANYONE DRESSED (and for the love of God, please don't make us try to put socks on anyone under the age of 5). SHE DOES NOT WANT TO PUT ANYONE DOWN FOR A NAP OR CHANGE A SINGLE, SOLITARY DIAPER. Nope. Not today. SHE DOES NOT WANT TO CLEAN. ANYTHING AT ALL. (Especially the kitchen that your sweet little kiddos destroyed when they "made" her breakfast in bed. In fact, if you see her starting to even try to clean up, this is a sign that she is STRESSED. Grab the cleaning supplies out of her hand and back away SLOWLY. Tell her she's pretty and turn on one of the Housewives.) 

Here's what the wife or mom in your life DOES want to do on Mother's Day: NOTHING. Nothing except Netflix (chill optional, depending on her preference). She wants to eat chocolate. In her pajamas. ALL THE DAY LONG. She wants to have an opportunity to pee. BY HERSELF. She wants ALL THE HOMEMADE CARDS, KISSES, HUGS, AND BADLY MADE TOAST. She wants lots of snuggles. She probably wants some kind of foot rub, preferably from a professional (which is not YOU.)  She wants any number of items on this list. 

Guys. You're welcome. 

Until next time,
