9 Unique Ways You Can Celebrate Being a Mum this Mother’s Day

mothers day bellamys 1

Breakfast in bed, gifts and cuddles are safety nets the whole family enjoy giving to their mum on Mother’s Day, which every mother appreciates. But why not celebrate Mother’s Day a little differently this year?

You should be proud of being a mum and not afraid to celebrate Mother’s Day in your own unique way.

You deserve it

Mother’s Day is not just about thanking the mum of the family for everything she does (which is a lot), it’s also about celebrating motherhood in general, maternal bonds, unconditional love and the influence of mothers in society.

Above all, Mother’s Day is an occasion in which, as a mum, you get to give yourself a hug and a pat on the back. You’ve accomplished a lot as a woman, think of the values you’ve passed along, the sadness and angst that you’ve healed, the compromises you’ve made, and the strength that inhibits you to look after your children every single day.  

Here are the unique ideas we’ve planned for you this Mother’s Day to have a think about:

1. Get writing

Once you’ve given the kids some cuddles and eaten up all your yummy breakfast, take a moment to write down what motherhood means to you. This is a great opportunity to explore your feelings and savour the beauty of motherhood. Be honest and true to yourself, and keep your notes somewhere safe until next year. If you like, you can accumulate Mother’s Day notes to yourself over time in a keepsake book and present it to your daughter when she becomes a mother.

2. Interview your husband and children

With smartphones and iPads, every mother is a videographer these days. Why not put it to good use and record a Mother’s Day message or interview your family? You might think you know what your children’s thoughts are, but what’s really going on in their minds can be something quite different. Their answers might be heartwarming, surprising, or hysterically funny.

Stuck for interview questions? Check out this great list.

3. Build a time capsule

Think about your year as a mother, and together with your kids, create a time capsule to bury until next year. Reflect on the milestones and blessings of the year, ask your kids questions and write down their answers (recall point 3) and add anything else you might like to preserve – a ticket stub, a drawing, photographs – anything that holds personal meaning. Bury the capsule together or store it somewhere you know you’ll find it next year.

4. Write letters to the amazing mums you know

No emails. No texts. No phone calls. This should be done in good old fashioned letter form.

Every mum parents differently and there are some mums who truly stand out as remarkable. Let them know what a great job they are doing with a letter describing how amazing they are. Be specific in what you write, and let them know how they have helped you with your own motherhood journey. Make a list of all the amazing things you’ve observed so that they know how truly valued they are.

5. Be respectful of those grieving

While Mother’s Day is a time of celebration, it can be hard for those separated from family, those struggling to have a family of their own, and those who have recently lost their mother or child. Mother’s Day merchandise is everywhere and it can serve as a reminder that something is missing. If you know someone who might be feeling this way on Mother’s Day, do something nice to spoil them. It could be as simple as a text, card or it could be a nice lunch out.

6. Join a fun run

The Mother’s Day Classic is held in every state across Australia. The run’s purpose is to raise funding for breast cancer research. You can sign up individually or as a team. If you’re not up for the five-kilometre run, offer your time as a volunteer and do something special for the one in eight women affected by breast cancer.

7. Have some alone time

It may go against your natural instinct that on a day that’s focused on celebrating motherhood that you’d opt to spend it alone, but this time alone is important to rejuvenate your zest for life! It’s okay to want time for yourself, be it to read a book in the garden, go shopping for new clothes, or go for a long walk on the beach. When was the last time you had a spa day? If you don’t have the funds to support a luxurious day at the spa, run a bath, light some candles, pop on some relaxing music and have promises not to disturb.

8. Enjoy storytime

If you want some downtime on Mother’s Day but the kids want to hang on your every move, set up a picnic rug in the garden and grab some books to read together. Choose books that are right for the day, such as The Mother’s Day Mice, No Time for Mother’s Day, Clifford’s Happy Mother’s Day or Are You My Mother? Reading is a wonderful bonding experience the whole family can enjoy.

9. Schedule hugs

No Mother’s Day would be complete without hugs and kisses, so schedule them in! This might sound like a regimented way of getting affection, but it can actually be a whole lot of fun. For instance, you could write “10:30 am – everyone runs to the sofa to give Mum a hug and a kiss” or, “2:00 pm – everyone assembles by the letter box to give Mum a hug and a kiss”. Alternatively, you could set an alarm for every hour and the kids have to come find you for a hug every time they hear it.

Have a beautiful Mother’s Day

It’s important to remember that Mother’s Day is your day. So, celebrate you. What makes you feel relaxed? Find what it is — whether it’s to be at home, out on a walk or treating yourself to a manicure. Maybe it’s even spending time with the kids. You might be a mother every day of the year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take one day out to celebrate being a mum.
