I don't think we ever do the same thing. Sometimes it's shopping, the park, lunch/dinner out, going out of town...fun things that I like and we can do as a family.
They usually get me a card, flowers, and a little gift. My son always does a craft project at school/daycare too :) I'm pretty sure that's my favorite part. This year it was a white carnation put into red water and a construction paper butterfly ♥ Those are the moments that make my heart burst with love.
My birthday usually falls around Mothers Day so typically we do a combo thing and celebrate the entire weekend. My husband and children get me a small gift (last year was comfy pair of slipper socks) and cards. Then we buy my flower/veggie plants for our garden and flower beds and plant them together and then we typically do something special as well, last year was dinner out at a fancy place, this year we are going into the city to go the museum. They have a pirate exhibit that my stepdaughter and I both want to see and our youngest is old enough to enjoy the childrens discovery zone.

@ Alfreda why don't you have your son take you out for a nice lunch ,,just the two of you and of course you can get the check.It is fun to have a special day just the 2 of you and make a nice memory of it.=) I take my son out all the time and we have a good time.

This year for the first time we are empty nesters and I'm enjoy it. I see and talk to all my children all the time. I want them to enjoy Mother's day with their own families. I just want to relax maybe I'll ask my son to go to church with us. That would be nice. He's not married.
I talk to my mom daily and have done so for the past 30 plus years. I've cooked for our entire family of 20 in the past. This year my hubby will grill up some steak and veges I"ll relax.
I bought some flowers to plant and had hubby carry out the 3 huge bags of potting soil. Took one over to my mom. I will hire a teenager to weed and transplant some flowers for me. All in all it will be a great Mother's Day!!
