With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we’re excited to share some inspiration for celebrating the queen of your heart…mom! Often times, it can be a bit difﬁcult trying to ﬁgure out how to celebrate mom in a special way. What I’ve come to ﬁnd is that it isn’t always about the amount you spend on a gift, but more so the thought that goes into showing how much you care. So this year, in addition to that special gift she’s been dying for and a nice dinner, add something thoughtful, straight from the heart that she’ll remember for years to come.
If you have children in preschool, you may have attended a “Mufﬁns with Mom” breakfast at your child’s school. These type of Mother’s Day celebrations are easy to do and teach children the value of showing appreciation. Whether your child’s school does this it or not, this would be an awesome tradition to incorporate annually in your home. Mothers can take the lead and enjoy a fun morning of bonding with your son and/or daughter, or dad and the kids can invite mom to the breakfast table for a sweet surprise on Mother’s Day morning! Along with enjoying delicious mufﬁns, if you have younger children, a thoughtful keepsake they can present to mom is a self-illustrated book, which can be found at Target or made using construction paper or cardstock. To ensure your “Mufﬁns with Mom” breakfast is perfect, adorn the table with a vase of beautiful ﬂowers, pour her a glass of OJ, and try this simple chocolate chip mufﬁn recipe: Chocolate Chip Mufﬁns
Makes 12 – 18 mufﬁns
2 cups all purpose ﬂour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
