|Not me for the record!|
This Sunday is my first Mother's Day as a mom. Since I share a birthday with my husband, I'm pretty psyched to have a day all to myself. I may have put some serious pressure on the Mr. to come up with something special, but hey, is it too much to ask for one single day a year that's all about me? Granted I've only got 6 weeks of mothering under my belt, but I feel pretty good about my contribution so far!
Even if the moms in your life aren't throwing down the gauntlet, you know you still want to treat her to something special. Just think of all those kisses and hugs, comforting words, packed lunches, wiped noses, sideline cheers, hours of labor and every one of the other million big and small things she does every day.
There are beaucoup options to wow your mom in Atlanta. Here's a roundup of what to expect. Get those reservations asap!
