Boca Mom Talk: It’s a Month Until Mother’s Day

It’s the final countdown…to Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13! This is one of the few mommy-mandatory days when us ladies can (attempt to) take a break from the day-to-day family grind and relax and enjoy.

Sign me up for it all—sleeping in, breakfast in bed, an uninterrupted shower, a boozy brunch. Bonus points if your partner (or children) are thoughtful enough to book you a nail appointment or massage later that afternoon. Because seriously…I can’t remember the last time I had that kind of time for self-care!

So it’s up to you, Boca dads, to make this happen. Remember: your day is in June and we plan to reciprocate your efforts. So plan accordingly.

Your first order of business? Brunch. With champagne.

The Addison courtyardI will always want to celebrate Mother’s Day at The Addison. They have endless activities to keep my child busy while I enjoy my fancy buffet, mimosas and bellinis in a stunning setting. I also wouldn’t mind the healthy but super tasty fare in Delray at Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar. They do a fabulous weekend brunch!

Then it’s time for presents…

Not a problem because Kendra Scott in Mizner Park just launched these amazing new, yummy candles that I want in every scent. Stop by and grab one. Bonus? It will already be wrapped in a pretty yellow box! Kendra Scott at Mizner Park, 411 Plaza Real, Boca Raton; 561/430-2520

But in case the mom in your life would prefer a spa day…

As for a Mother’s day facial or massage, we recommend booking an appointment sooner rather than later at Massage Heights Delray Place. It’s conveniently located in the same plaza as Harvest—brunch and a rub down sounds like heaven to me! Massage Heights Delray Place, 420 E. Linton Blvd. #804, Delray Beach; 561/749-9721

 

However you decide to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, just remember that you, Ms. Boca Mom, deserve the best! And during all of the other non-holiday days of the year, remind yourself that those kiddos that you brought into the world are really the best gift of all.
