Today is the last post in our Mother’s Day series pairing simple easy to make recipes little ones can make for mom and activities to pair with them. You don’t have to be a mom to enjoy any of these recipes and they are all mom approved! There is another giveaway as well so head to Instagram and check it out, as well as all the others posted this week including one for Pitaya Plus that makes this pancakes pretty pink! Shh there is one more coming tomorrow!
Being a mom is one a rewarding, often thankless “job” that pays not in money but in watching them grow up and all the smiles, love, hugs, and kisses! There are no days off and often long exhausting days. Starting the day getting them breakfast and of to school, then laundry, cleaning, dishes, volunteering at the school, work, running around after school to activities, school projects, soccer games, gymnastics, dance competitions, snacks, dinner, helping with homework, the list goes on.
Sometimes we just need a little break and Mother’s Day is often a day many moms get that little break sleeping in a little and the kids making mom breakfast. I’m going to be honest as much as I love my sleep when the girls are down making me breakfast and I’m told quietly to shh stay in bed all I want to do is go down and watch and join them in the kitchen fun. I love seeing what they come up with, A cutting fruit, and not sure what they made the last time I just remember the smiles on their faces and how happy and excited they were.
A, at 9 years old, is the queen of pancakes! Even S being older lets her sister make them and even make them for her friends when she has sleepovers. We use to eat pancakes often but then stopped making them as often we’ve tried mixes but the girls weren’t a fan of most and then S couldn’t have them due to the dairy so we would stick to homemade pancakes. Then we found Birch Benders and ever since pancakes happen all the time because the whole family loves them and they’re so easy A can make them.
So this year I’m requesting a big stack of Pretty In Pink Pitaya Pancakes because moms deserve pretty things on Mother’s Day with a lots of Georgia Grinders Maple Pecan Almond Butter, my latest nut butter obsession! Maybe even with blueberries because we’ve also made pitaya blueberry pancakes and they were delicious. I’m going to try to embrace the moment and take a little time to myself and then spend the day with my girls.
The activity we are pairing with this simple recipe for this last post is whatever brings mom joy!
A day at the spa or just pampering mom and her daughter’s painting her nails for her.
Yoga, barre, a run, a walk, a bike ride, kayaking, if it’s something active mom enjoys maybe join her, or if you’re a mom invite your kids to join you. Or if that’s your time enjoy it!
Read a book, catch a movie, go grab coffee, take mom out to lunch or dinner.
The list goes on and on and there is no right or wrong answer.
If you’re a mom do at least one thing that brings YOU joy!Make Mom's day with Pretty in Pink Pitaya Pancakes! #MothersDay #pitaya #SweatPink Click To Tweet
