Like everything else right now, Mother’s Day might not look quite the very same way it normally does this year. There will be no get-togethers with extended household, no breakfast at your preferred local dining establishment, no relaxing massages or pedicures. There is likely more tension than usual, either from financial or work stress or, you understand, being house with the kids 24 -7 for almost two straight months. There is a sweet (and totally free!) way you can make Mom’s Day special this year for your partner or your own mother: with Post-it Note memories.

Gallagher discusses:

To make sure it all made sense, we put the very first Post-it outside her bed room door that said, “Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! If you would like to know all the reasons that we enjoy you, come downstairs.” She was then met with vibrant Post-its in the corridor, on the staircase, on the front window, all over the kitchen, on closet doors, on image frames, on fireplaces, and more. The Post-its varied from easy things like “Due to the fact that you can never decline a great margarita” to more particular memories like “Because you had Mickey and Minnie visit me in our hotel space in Disney World when I was sick.” And we covered the excellent and the bad, like “Since you kept my very first tattoo a trick from Father” and “Due to the fact that you understand when something’s incorrect the second you hear my voice.”

Gallagher and her sister even got their hubbies included writing their own memories, and the result was a collection of notes that detailed 30 years of motherhood.

It’s a sweet idea any year, however it’s especially ideal now when the indulging is not just harder to achieve however mamas may need an extra emotional pick-me-up.

Want to do this for your own mama or another unique mother in your life who does not deal with you? If they cope with another person, write out the Post-it Notes now, mail it to that individual and ask to do the sticking for you.
