Pick up After Yourself 

Let's face it, mom has picked up after you more times then you can probably count. 

Toys all over the place, video games all over the place, clothes all over the place. You name it, she has most likely picked it up. 

So turn the tables and pick up after yourself, put your stuff away wherever it is supposed to go.

Call Mom Everyday 

Especially if you don't live at home or are living at school, nothing will brighten up a mothers day like a phone call, but not a phone call because you need or want something. 

A phone call just for the heck of it. 

She will enjoy it.

Give Mom a Day Off From Laundry 

Doing the laundry for a household of people is a tedious job that can take hours of a day. 

Tell mom to take a day off from the laundry and get the rest of the family to team up and do it for a day, maybe the weekend? 

Imagine the great day that mom could have if she didn't have the stress of laundry hanging over her head.

Write to Mom Everyday 

In a day and age where it is all about emailing and texting, a handwritten letter would be a nice way to change things up. Y

You can start by slipping a letter inside the Mother's Day card.

The Freedom Trail
 

The Freedom Trail is a two and a half mile walking tour that connects 16 significant Boston landmarks. Other than interior access to Paul Revere's house, the Old South Meeting House and the Old State House, it's all FREE. 

Mom will love the walk and the cool historical landmarks.

Cut the Grass 

Don't let mom cut the grass, volunteer to do it instead, actually insist on doing it so she gets time to do what she wants. 

Or maybe mom does not cut the grass which means she probably calls a company, another relative or a neighbor to do it and stresses about when they are coming and how much they charge.

Then she has to worry about how it looks and if it's done right. 

Give her a break and just do it yourself.

Movie Night 

Plan a family movie night at home and let mom pick out the movie that she wants to watch. 

Grab some popcorn, maybe a beverage or two and enjoy. 

An alternative to a movie would be binge watching a show on Netflix that she has yet to watch due to how busy she is.
