I wish I could be more like you
While you might be tempted, it’s never a good idea to ever insult your mother, even if it’s in jest. A good rule of thumb is that if you wouldn’t say it to her face, you probably shouldn’t say it at all. If a mother-daughter relationship has always been strained or you don’t have a relationship with your own mom, resist making jokes at her expense. Instead of trying to put your mother down and make yourself look good (which will never really work), go out of your way to make her feel special and loved on Mother’s Day by treating her out for lunch or by bringing over flowers and cookies. Or, if you want to make her laugh, send her a funny text message instead. The bottom line: Saying something hurtful to your mother on Mother’s Day can ruin what should be one of the best days of year for both of you—so keep things light and fun! If I’d known how much I’d end up liking kids: Another common mistake is when mothers give their child-free friends grief about not having children yet. After all, we know that many people do change their minds about having kids as they get older.
I know what kind of mother you are
Telling your mother what kind of mother she is (i.e., good, bad, lazy) is never a good idea. Rather than insulting her, tell her what she does for you. Be specific: How does she help you? How does she help others? What about her inspires or motivates you? Sure, moms want their children to express gratitude but that doesn’t mean they want them to be disingenuous or fake; let her know how much and why you appreciate her. If you really don’t like something she did or said, ask her questions. Maybe she didn’t realize it would hurt your feelings. Maybe there was an underlying reason behind her actions. Either way, talking through it will probably make both of you feel better—or it might even lead to some great conversations! The bottom line: Saying something hurtful to your mother on Mother’s Day can ruin what should be one of the best days of year for both of you—so keep things light and fun!
