Mother’s Day Traditions

Do you have a favorite Mother’s Day tradition? I am very into traditions, and one of my favorite Mother’s Day traditions is planting a flower garden with my kiddos.
My husband and I aren’t big on getting crazy gifts from the kids for Mother’s or Father’s Day (we’re just very practical people) but my Mother’s Day gift every year is flowers that I can plant in our flower garden. It’s a gift that lasts all spring and summer, and it’s an activity that my kiddos can help with.
Memories. To me, this is all about creating memories. Some day, when my kiddos are planting their own gardens, I hope that they would think of the times we spent together as a family, digging in the dirt and sprinkling on the water so that our little seeds or little plants can grow.
My lil’ lady helped with the planting this year. Big brother was helping Daddy with the lawn care and lil’ guy was busy picking dandelions.
So far, it doesn’t look like much, but with a little love, these plants are going to bloom into beautiful blossoms that are supposed to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. We can’t wait to see them!
Love grows here. These flowers are planted with love. They are loved all season long.
And I love that they give us the chance to grow as a family.
That’s my Mother’s Day tradition.
What is yours?
