Only once a year… How about observing it every day?May 5, 2009 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #1076388
every day is mother’s day for us 🙂May 5, 2009 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1076389squeakParticipant
If you haven’t observed the other 364 days, then you’d better observe the 1.May 5, 2009 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #1076390oomisParticipant
That’s what I always say, but it still is nice to be treated EXTRA-special.May 5, 2009 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #1076391JewessMember
Why should Jews not observe it? It’s not a religious holiday.
There’s nothing wrong with making a day special for your mom. As a matter of fact, it’s probably “kibud em” to do something nice for her on Mother’s day (or any other day that you want to designate for your mom). It’s not like you don’t love/appreciate/respect her all year round.May 5, 2009 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #1076392
I treat Mrs. YW Moderator-72 very special on Mother’s Day. after all she takes care of all the jr-72s.
here’s is what I do:
I prepare breakfast – usually scambled eggs with onions and potatoes (coffee also) After breakfast, I start working on lunch – nothing to heavy.
for dinner, i go with an old standby, I grill hot dogs and hamburgers on the foreman grill, I through on some vegetables (onions, peppers and such)and deep fry french fries.
Of course, all the pots and pans as well as the plates and utensils I insist that she wait until Monday to wash them. I let her wash the grill on Sunday as it it easier to wash while it is still hot.May 5, 2009 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1076393
72, you mean you don’t wash them all yourself??May 5, 2009 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm #1076394
moish01: isn’t it enough that I make the meals for myself that day so she only has to worry about herself and the kids?
ames: I buy Mrs. YW Moderator-72 a lovely assortment of scratch-off mother’s day lottery tickets (a few from NY and a few from NJ)May 5, 2009 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #1076395
ha funny.May 5, 2009 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1076396
silly question ames. I give her pre-scratched ones so she doesn’t have to go searching for a coin (very considerate of me, wouldn’t you agree) 0h… and this way, I can cash the winners for her and give her some of the cash…May 5, 2009 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #1076397mepalMember
LOL 72 🙂May 5, 2009 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #1076398JewessMember
Don’t know what you consider expensive but some ideas that I’ve gotten for my Mom…
Perfume:(I think it’s her favorite gift) $70+
(Wooden) Salad bowl with matching serving spoon and fork: $40
Flowers: (I’m not sure that’s so personal) $20
Mother’s Day Card: (It’s a good cop out idea if you have no idea..) $3
I think she’ll feel good just being thought about, no matter what you get and how much you spend…May 5, 2009 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #1076399
if I kept it religiously, I would let her start washing the dishes an hour or so after shkiah…May 5, 2009 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #1076400
wow corn alert!May 5, 2009 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #1076401areivimzehlazehParticipant

BYM, do you go to school? how were you able to post 6 hours ago? (I think I’m getting jealous. 🙁 )
is that why they let you go to convention? They figured you weren’t there anyway, so they weren’t missing much? 😉May 5, 2009 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1076405
as for my idea…
I heard once something like giving a card saying something like free pre-cooked supper, or free shabbos flowers, etc., able to be redeemed at any time.May 6, 2009 12:25 am at 12:25 am #1076406ChanieEParticipantMay 6, 2009 12:36 am at 12:36 am #1076407

I told you that chavrusa he had in 3rd grade was a bad influence. Do you see it now or are you still in denial?
By the way, I’m sure the feminists in the CR would love to know why the editor’s father is 60 higher than his mother.
