what dads really want for Father's Day

If you’re wondering what to get your husband for Father’s Day, look no further. You helped me corral your hubbies into answering a survey for me, and the results are in! Here’s what dads really want for Father’s Day…

First, how important is Father’s Day, really?

The average rating out of 5 stars was 3.5 stars – which basically means: they enjoy Father’s Day, it makes them feel appreciated, but perhaps they think about it a little less than we do about Mother’s Day. 

Now, on to the good stuff.

What Moms Really Want for Mother’s Day

What Moms Really Want for Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is upon us! This COVID quarantine is doing strange things to the time – it’s as if time is going faster and slower all at the same time. How is that possible?!

So, I asked and you told me what you REALLY want for Mother’s Day! Share this with a dad in your life – let’s spread the word about what moms actually want for Mother’s Day.

Some advice to the dads on Mother’s Day:

Talk to your wife or mom about what she would like. Ask questions like: What do you envision for your ideal Mother’s Day? You make every day special for us, how can I make your Mother’s Day special? What’s something we can do for you that would make you feel extra appreciated on this Mother’s Day? You can still add your own special touches, but I guarantee that your wife has something in mind that she would like for Mother’s Day. Work together with your kids to make that happen, and to make it extra special. It’s safe to say that you can’t ever go TOO overboard for Mother’s Day.

Interviews with Moms in Different Stages

I am so excited for this blog post! I have always found it helpful to get other viewpoints from different moms. This segment of the blog is for that purpose: to offer perspective. For each of these interviews with a mom, I’ll be talking with a mom of young children (babies, toddlers, etc), a mom of older kiddos, and a mom of adult children.

I remember reading an interview like this on another mom blog that helped me to realize that it was okay for my kids to play by themselves. It honestly had never crossed my mind that my (at the time) two-year-old could play in a different room while I did something else! I’m sure that sounds insanely basic – but you just don’t know what you don’t know! Like I’ve mentioned before, I was not a “kid person” before having my own children. So it’s been helpful for me to learn from other moms, hear some different viewpoints, and just start a discussion about topics that are relevant to me as a mom.

I’m so grateful for these women who took time out of their busy schedules to answer my questions. And wow did I learn so much!
