I am a master procrastinator (Thanks Tim Urban for giving me words for my affliction). It is a monumental victory for me to even realize that Mother's Day is a month away. It's an even greater victory if I do something about it.
I make my mom a custom calendar featuring family photos each year for the past 10 or 15 years. The calendar starts in February because, let's face it, it will never arrive before February. Did I mention this is her Christmas gift?
I also have siblings, and like many siblings, we have a healthy sense of competition. My goal in giving my mom gifts is to:
1) Make her cry (because then I know it was good) and
2) Be better than my siblings (I mean give a better gift but that is equal to actually being better right?)
3) I mean, disregard everything you saw above, my sole goal in giving my mom gifts is to let her know how much I love and appreciate her for bringing me into this world and letting me continue to live despite giving her an extraordinarily hard time on occasion.
The moral of this post, because all good children's stories have a moral:
Don't be a procrastinator and give your mother a mother's day gift sometime around father's day.
Show the motherly people in your life how much you love and appreciate them whether they raised you, loved you, supported you, gave birth to you, adopted you or were there for you in whatever way you needed at the time.
And if numbers 1/2 resonated with you or 3, let Beagle FX help you make an unforgettable gift that will be displayed proudly for years to come.
