Your mom works hard all year long, mostly so you don’t have to. In preparation for Mother’s Day, here are some projects that you can take over… so that she doesn’t have to.
Your mom doesn’t want to hang her own pictures. She’s had the frames for years, and they’ve been sitting up against a shelf in her closet. Maybe it’s because she’s not tall enough; maybe because she’s never been handy with a level. So get mom’s pictures affixed to the wall, even if it means you’ll have to see your embarrassing high school class picture more often.
Your mom doesn’t feel like touching up those hedges. After all, you treated her to a Mother’s Day manicure already, and the last thing Mom wants to do is wreck them gardening. She’s always loved how her perfectly uniform Japanese yew makes her yard look like a secret garden, so get that errant growth trimmed.
Your mom doesn’t want to clean her fully stained area rug. She’s long cursed her preference for unreasonably white floor covering. Every dirty shoe that’s ever crossed this carpet has left its mark. Save Mom the time on her hands and knees by having a professional take care of the job.
Your mom doesn’t really want to clean her own toilet. To be honest, she doesn’t really want to clean anything. Be kind and make that a reality for her. And put the toilet seat down while you’re at it.
