44 People Tell What They're Doing For Mother's Day — Since We're All Struggling In A Pandemic

Mother's Day is May 10th and even though we're all stuck in a pandemic, that doesn't mean we can't still do some great things for and with our amazing moms. I, like many others, have been struggling to come up with something to do for our amazing mothers for Mother's Day this year.

Out of a desperate attempt for ideas, I went to Instagram, Twitter, and 4 different Facebook groups asking everyone what they wanted if they were mothers, and what they were doing for their mothers for this Mother's Day. Over three-hundred people answered and even though we may in a pandemic, and these may only be the top forty-four, the replies really will warm your hearts and spark some ideas for your own Mother's Day celebrations.

1. Spend time with her

You have no idea how many moms answered saying they just wanted to spend quality and non-arguing time with their children.

2. Make and bring her breakfast in bed

3. Clean the house

4. Clean the yard

5. Paint her a meaningful painting

6. Cross-stitch her something meaningful and frame it

7. Make her a fancy dessert 

8. Make her a dessert (or meal) that is specifically for her diet

A lot of moms are on keto, sugar-free, dairy-free, etc., so try making something that is specifc for that.

10. Order her favorite meal from her favorite restaurant

11. Then have a Zoom dinner with her

12. Pick up her favorite (or any) flowers

13. Have her favorite (or any) flowers delivered to her from a local flower shop

Even though we all live on Netflix and Hulu, a lot of moms still don't.

15. Order an e-giftcard for her to get her hair or nails done after quarantine

16. Or give her a DIY manicure and pedicure

17. Buy her some of her favorite skincare products

18. Host an at-home-experience for brunch and mimosas

19. Make her a basket of homemade cocktails 

20. Buy her favorite wine for her

And definitely more than one bottle.

21. Cook her favorite food for her

22. Buy a digital photo album and fill it with pictures

23. Or buy and make her an actual photo album with real pictures in it 

25. Split the cost of a new home appliance with your siblings

27. Have some edible arangements delivered

28. Order personalized necklace

These can be shipped in one to three days!

29. Buy her a roomba

30. Have an at-home spa day together

31. Pack and take a picnic togther

32. Write her a handwritten letter 

33. Actually say "thank you" 

I gurantee you don't say it enough.

34. Have an at-home photoshoot 

Have a backdrop set up, let her get dressed up, and take some bomb photos of your mom!

35. Buy her some flowering plants and plant them for her

36. Or buy her some pots and dirt and help her plant them too

37. Buy an oil diffuser and some essential oils

Being a mom is rough, especially during a pandemic.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
