A cheat sheet for dads on Mother's Day

Us moms don't ask for a lot on Mother's Day, just a few simple things to make our lives a tad easier.

First up, let mom sleep in. Or at least be able to stay in bed and not jump up to pour bowls of cereal and wash dishes. Breakfast in bed would be a huge perk.

Next, let the kids present their homemade cards. They can make them while mom is lounging in bed. Or, bonus points if you get the kids to do them the night before. If you need more inspiration, click herehere and here for more ideas.

Then, take the kids out for a nice walk. Along the way, they can pick some wildflowers. Even dandelions will do. Mom will appreciate the thought.

Order dinner. No one needs to cook or clean up afterward. Let mom choose the place. Bonus points if you remember to order a small dessert or treat mom likes.

A helpful gift she can actually use. We love the "World's Greatest Mom" mugs, but our cupboards are full. Sign us up for a few meal kits from HelloFresh to streamline meal planning efforts. Or get us a few housekeeping sessions.

Don't forget your own little sentiment. A simple handwritten letter will go a long way. Trust me.
