The My Cute Closet ultimate guide to the ultimate Mother’s Day at home, 2020 edition!!


This will most definitely be a Mother’s Day to remember!! I have written this ultimate guide for all you overworked and under appreciated mothers out there to ensure that your Mother’s Day at home is more memorable than this awful Covid-19 pandemic!!
.
A perfect Mother’s Day starts the day before.  Make a ‘detailed’ cleaning rota for the whole family and put them all to work. Getting kids to clean the house may require bribes (it’ll be sooooo worth it).  The best start to the ultimate Mother’s Day is waking up to a home that resembles a beautiful show house with zero housework to do (we can dream)!
.
Wake up early or sleep in late, you decide, it is your day after all.  Wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee in your freshly changed sheets to a beautiful breakfast tray complete with pretty flowers from your garden or a handful of weeds 😝 and some sweet handmade cards from your little darlings.
.
With all the indulging today a family hike or online yoga class will be the perfect start to your perfect day.  Afterwards enjoy a guided meditation or take time to journal or read (ALONE, you must be alone).
.
Continue the zen by transforming your bathroom into the ultimate spa day.  Relax in a sensuous bubble bath with your favorite essential oils filtering through the air whilst listening to calming and mellow music. Put on that face mask (no not the surgical face mask) you’ve been promising yourself you’d put on this whole quarantine but you prioritized baking every ‘single’ day instead!  Then sink in and sip some cucumber, mint infused water and chill.  Side note: this is mandatory ‘ALONE’ time, lock the door and turn up the music if you need to drown out the sound of your kids knocking on the door!
.
While you’re all wrapped up in your cozy robe pretending to be at a fancy hotel somewhere giving yourself that well overdue mani/pedi, the ultimate mimosa brunch is underway in the kitchen. You can just about smell it over your essential oils as the smells of your favorite foods waft seductively into the bathroom. If you smell burning, run and just put that mani/pedi on hold again for another 2 more months!
.
After enjoying the ultimate and most delicious brunch you’ve ever tasted in your entire life, pop on your running shoes for a leisurely afternoon neighborhood walk followed by some family games or maybe a little just dance!
.
Enjoy a little pre-dinner wine tasting while waiting for your gourmet dinner and dessert to arrive from your favorite restaurant.
.
Finish your night by transforming your living-room into an in home movie theatre. Bonus: you get to choose the movie (for once).  Sit back and relax and (pretend not to notice any complaining about your movie choice) enjoy some popcorn and your favorite sweet and salty snacks (you should be wearing some ‘elastic waist’ loungewear right about now 😉).
.
Fall into bed and have a restful nights sleep after the most amazing day you’ve ever had at home with thoughts of homeschooling tomorrow and the messy kitchen you pretended not to notice dancing in your head!

Happy "quarantine' Mother's Day!!
