Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May each year, and is a day set aside to honor our mothers. According to Wikipedia, it is a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
You can look for any special events on my Truckee Event Calendar. Mom's deserve a break from the kitchen on this day, so it is a great day to take your mother out to Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner at one of the amazing Truckee Restaurants!

for Mother's Day, you will be a little bit more successful than these

I could really relate to the video above! My kids got along great when they were young, but then went through a stage where they couldn't stand each other, which was super hard. At times, I thought there was no hope, but I'm glad to say that now they are older, they are great friends!
Mothers Day is a great day of the year to put aside all sibling fighting and give your Mom a nice and peaceful day. As a Mom...that is one of the best gifts for the day!
Here are some ideas of things that I enjoyed receiving on "Mom's Day":
The Free Dictionary Online defines a Stepmother as: 1) The wife of one's Father, and not one's natural Mother. 2) A woman who has married one's Father after the death or divorce of one's Mother.
Many children these days have Step Mom's, mine included! Mother's Day is a day to honor your Mother, but I feel that it is respectful and a great idea to honor your Stepmother as well. I've always thought that they had a harder job than the natural Mother! They play the role of a Mother while the kids are in their care, but often do not get the respect and love that a natural Mother would get.
When I divorced in 1995, my ex-husband chose to re-marry right away after our divorce. So while my kids were dealing with the fact that we divorced, and I moved the kids to Truckee about an hour from their Dad, they also had to adjust to having a Stepmother and a Stepsister in their lives at the same time. This was not easy at first, and I finally had to put both my kids in counseling, which helped. It takes time to adjust to a new family dynamic, and often Step Mom's can suffer during the transition.
I'm really happy that everyone learned to work things out and get along! I've always viewed my kids Step Mom as someone else to love and support my kids! It helps that her and I made an effort to get along from the beginning, and while many people think it is "weird", I really like her, and consider her one of my friends, which really helped my kids adjust.
So...if you have a Stepmother, don't forget to honor them also on the official observance of "Stepmother's Day" and it is celebrated the Sunday after Mother's Day! In 2023, it is celebrated on Sunday, May 21, 2023.
Mothers Day can also be a sad day! Many children are Motherless, or separated from their Mother by divorce, distance, or death. Many Mother's have lost children through miscarriage, or death and this can be a difficult day to get through. Many Mom's are in the military and stationed overseas during Mothers Day.
Whatever the reason, if you know a Motherless child, try to include them in your own family plans for the day!
