M is for a Memorable Mother's Day
Posted Thursday, April 29, 2010 by Administrator


SHE MAKES the best cou-cou and flying fish. Nobody comes close to her ackee and salt fish. Her roti is to die for.

Mothers across the world look forward to the second Sunday of each May, if for no other reason than the chance to hang up their aprons and let somebody else do the nurturing for once, and Caribbean mums are no exception.

As movers and shakers in the world of work, in a career that may be just as demanding as their partners’, many Caribbean women routinely balance work outside the home with caring for the children, cooking, laundry, hair braiding, homework duty, cleaning … the list is endless. Not to be forgotten is the stay-at-home Mum, whose work is never done.

Although more men appear to be less adverse to assisting with housework and child rearing than ever before, the majority of the day-to-day tasks of running a household still fall squarely on Mummy. Thankfully, the convenience of household inventions and appliances have combined to make her task an easier one.

Even so, a toaster oven or a coffee maker is NOT a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, even for those mothers who look to cook and spend time in the kitchen. Now is the time to remind the ladies in your lives that their value extends much further than the chores they do.

Here are a few ideas to pamper Mum on her special day:

  • Kick off the weekend festivities by sending flowers or a fruit basket to her work place with a note of appreciation.
  • Treat her to a visit to a spa. Nobody who spends that much time on their feet will say no to a pedicure.
  • Take her shopping for a new outfit. Pay for it.
  • Book lunch for the family at a restaurant, or if you are a firm do-it-your-selfer, prepare it at home and serve her in grand style.
  • Surprise her with a video in which you tell her how much she means to you. This may be especially useful to families separated by distance.
  • Listen to her advice. Honour her by raising your own children with the values she imparted.
  • Whatever you choose to do, let the outpouring of love and support continue to flow for mum long after Mother’s Day has passed. That truly is the greatest gift you could give her.
