Being a mother is tough and being a single mom is near Herculean especially when you have minor children and staying away from them, regardless of the time period, is not the best of things for a mom. Here are some ways to celebrate mother’s day as a single mom.

1. Negotiate time

If your minor children aren’t scheduled to be with you on Mother’s Day, then talk to your ex to have that included. You could trade the day off with Father’s Day, so there is an even exchange. You could also make that a part of your agreement for minimal fees.

2. Make a multi-single mom celebration

Get together with all other single moms you know of or are comfortable with. Let them all bring their children along and organize a potluck of special treats. The kids can entertain themselves with each other while you enjoy some girlfriend time.

3. Prepare your children

If your children are young and their dad is no longer available to take them out to pick up a special gift for their mother, you have to prepare yourself for it. Find new ways to get gifts from your children. You could take them out yourself or make some beautiful stuff at home with DIY kits.

4. Do it together

Doing things with children is the best way to spend Mother’s Day. Prepare lunch, bake together, make some crafty items or simply tell each other stories. Children light up lives and only a mother can really acknowledge and bask in their glory.

5. Have a no chores day

All your chores for that day can wait. You can buy take-away food for a day and spend time as you choose. A chore-free day can make you relaxed. Make sure you fill you and your home with talks and laughter of your children for they can resonate with the matters of your heart.

6. Shoot a family photo

Now you have a new family. You may be single but that should not be a reason to deny yourself a photo shoot. So, this Mother’s Day, seek help of a professional photographer and click a picture of yourself with your children in all whacky poses possible. Every time you look at them, you’ll remember the good times you had and those poses can also trigger a few laughs.

7. Talk to your children

Letting your children know what you want should not make you conscious. It is your special day and if you do not have that special someone in your life to do things for you, rope your children in. They will be more than happy to do things for you.

8. Pamper yourself

When you are single, you have the liberty to do a lot of things. Keep the chores away, go out to a spa and pamper yourself head to toe. Come out looking ravishing and feeling on top of the world.

Single or otherwise, Mother’s Day is for you and you deserve to celebrate it unabashed. Don’t let anything else ruin that spirit for you.
