Here are some things you can do the night before:
- Locate tray for bringing me breakfast in bed.
- Pick up flowers, and find vase.

- Decide which recipes you are going to make.
- Set your alarm in some fashion that will not wake me up.

You guys are really too much – thank you, in advance, for what I know will be the best Mother’s Day ever. I love you.
