Open Letter To My Husband About Mother’s Day

To my darling husband,

As you know I am not a materialistic person.

Yes, I like nice things but in the grand scheme of things I would rather live in a nice house than have a Louis Vuitton handbag. I would rather go out and have a nice family lunch than buy expensive make-up. I would rather have a day out adventure than get my hair done. I would rather get a new Potted-plant than a bunch of flowers that will die. I will stop there.
With Mothers Day coming up soon (Sunday 14 May!! – it’s in your diary) I thought I would put together a few ideas of how I would like to spend Mother’s Day this year (p.s – we will be in Joburg already on the Saturday)

  • Lunch out at ‘the biggest jungle in Jo’burg’ – but not the same one please, maybe their other branch.
  • Day out in Harties, maybe on the cable cars, see:
  • Watching a movie – even if there aren’t any animated movies at the cinema, staying home for a movie day would be good.

I’m pretty open to anything really as long as we follow the following set of guidelines:

  • I don’t want to cook.
  • I don’t want to clean up after.
  • I don’t want to plan or decide what we do.
  • I don’t want to fight with the kids about appropriate clothing!
  • I want us to do something as a family.
  • It would be great if it’s something or somewhere new.

Some advice:

  • If you decide on a restaurant, maybe book in advance! 😉
  • If you go out on the bike I will sell it!

Thanks my love, looking forward to whatever you plan.

Lots of love,

Me xxx

      1. Oh! Lol! A friend’s husband once told me he had just gotten back from riding his “bike” to and from Pennsylvania (at least 200 miles -320KM from here.) I was totally naive. “You did??? In one day???” Motorcycles never occur to me.

        1. Haha … I never know whether I should clarify when I mention it either. Sounds a bit boastful/show-off-ish/ridiculous to say ‘motorbike’ so I just say ‘bike’. Maybe I’m being silly.

  1. LMAO… #MomsUnite This letter is so real! Shoot, every year I have to have a say in what’s happening and usually cook as well. But Father’s day….we take care of it all. And I mean I have a pretty hands on amazing husband, but the more kids we had, mother’s day just gets worse with every passing year. ha ha

    Hope hubby reads this. PS And that Typo glass/bottle! 😉

  2. What a brilliant post! It was my first Mother’s Day (in the U.K.) and my husband bought me some fab presents so I can’t complain!
    However, I might write him a letter if he starts to slack off!

  3. So true – sounds cheesy but presence is more important than presents and time and effort is appreciate more than the amount of money spent! My hubby did much better this year on a small, thoughtful gift than the expensive gift that never materialised last year! I was happy just to not change a nappy! #MarvMondays

  4. Once I’m a mother I will want to be spoiled in the morning and then leave the family to fend for themselves and take the rest of the day just to myself. A spa day sounds good!!
