Mothers Day 2022

There is no doubt that Mothers have the toughest job in the world! It is a 24 hours a day, 365 days a week responsibility. It provides wonderful moments, challenging moments and very scary moments too! Mothers....We salute you for all you do! Happy Mother's Day from Winnipeg Parent!

What Moms Really Want for Mother's Day

Winnipeg Parent polled a group of Moms to find out what they really want for Mother's Day and this was what they came up with:

  1. For Dad to take the kids out for an afternoon so Mom can have a peaceful couple of hours to relax, go for a walk or read a book uninterrupted.

  2. Flowers - Not Candy ... Flowers have no calories...OK... chocolate is always welcome!

  3. Let Mom sleep in but not on Mother's Day because the kids can hardly wait to celebrate with Mom and Moms love that!

  4. Moms want everyone in the family to get along and not bicker. Keep Mother's Day peaceful.

  5. Moms want to order in or pick up dinner so Mom does not have to cook or clean up.

  6. Moms want the family to do the chores she hates, like emptying the dishwasher or folding the laundry.

  7. Moms want LOTS of hugs and snuggles.

  8. Moms want to listen to her music in the car-not the kid's music.

  9. Moms want to control the television remote for just one day.

  10. Moms want to feel appreciated for everything they do for their family.

A Poem for MOM

Mom, I loved you yesterday, I love you tomorrow and everyday.

You were there for me my first day of school, to hold my hand and give me courage to go.

You listened to me when I needed to talk, you talked to me when I needed to listen.

You let me grow and learn from my own mistakes.

You never left my side when I was feeling down, I knew you would be there to pick me up.

I wish there was a way I could repay all the things you have done for me, but there's nothing great enough to repay the greatest mother of all.
