    I would imagine they're for mothers who's children aren't able to send them cards - either because they're dead or have some sort of disability.

    We always used to buy flowers for our babysitter because her only son died when he was 14...she used to cry every mothers day but I hope that knowing that every single child on our street thought of her as a second mum made things easier to cope with.

    My cousin is also never likely to understand mothers day enough to be able to send her mum a card as she's autistic...her mum is the most amazing mother and I think it's lovely that even though my cousin can't say thanks (well she does in her own way) the entire family makes an effort to say thanks for her

    LOL that's a pretty good idea actually - she did say she wants us to keep the house clean
    although she'll probably still find traces of dust somewhere

    You could clean the house from top to bottom while she's away, and cook her a lovely meal for when she gets back.
    Hello people! That is a really good idea Amb1! My mum would love it if we did that... no such luck though! We're planning on booking her a balloon flight for mothers day and not telling her about it/giving her any other prezzies, just putting her in the car and driving her to the place blindfolded

    I thought we needed a mothers' day thread, seeing as it is next week, to share gift ideas etc. Me and eeyore are getting our mum a balloon flight, as it is something she's wanted to do for ages. What about you people?
