Ever wondered if flowers, chocolates or jewelry truly work magic with moms on Mother’s Day?
Surprise! None of these sweet traditional treats are on mothers’ wish list for Mother’s Day as most of them desire for nothing but a day off from parenting—freedom from urgent to-do lists, household chores and tantrums of the kids, even just for one day—according to a recent study by Disney’s online parenting magazine, Babble.com.
Closely following parenting day-off on the list is sleep, a heaven’s sent gift especially for mombies (mommies + zombies) who manage to report to work sleepless after a long night of nursing their toddlers with new-found sleeping patterns!
Completing moms’ Mother’s Day wish list are delicious food (not cooked by them, of course!), several hours alone to binge-watch TV shows and movies, a clean house, foot massage and a bottle of wine.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner why not make this year’s celebration a lot more memorable by granting their biggest wish—a Mommy Me-Time day off doing anything and everything that makes her happy. No questions asked!
Well-known for being a family-friendly haven for moms, SM Supermalls, the country’s biggest mall network, is set to throw fun and heartwarming treats as early as April to pay tribute to Filipina SuperMoms, the strong, loving, hardworking women who always put their families first in everything they do.
Let Mommy Me-Time at SM begin this April 26 (Tuesday) when SM malls mount Instagrammable grand floral displays perfect as selfie backdrops of SuperMoms who will participate in the “Mom’s Kitchen” fair, a special gathering of mall merchants and mommy entrepreneurs featuring their delectable sweets, cakes and pastries.
Finding time for exercise and taking care of one’s self will be highlighted in the “Mom Bods” exercise sessions where mothers will be treated to free Zumba and Body Jam dance classes.
