Times have changed my friends! Things just simply aren’t the way they used to be back in the black and white days of “Father Knows Best” and “Leave it To Beaver!” as a matter of fact, I bet nearly half of you reading this article right now are to young to even know what those to references are even about, which only more effectively proves my point.
Things have changed over the year and one thing that most definitely has changed is the image people once used to carry around in their minds about dear ole’ Mom! As another dated cultural icon once provocatively reminded mom, “You’ve come a long way baby!”
These days Mom is a lot more likely to eat bacon and nachos than crumpets and curd. She’s more likely to cruise the town in a funny or clever t-shirt and jeans than in a red polka dot dress down to her ankles.
These days, Mom spends a lot less time hanging out all day long in the kitchen making elaborate 7 course meals and is more likely to be constantly on the run, going out and doing stuff with her circle of best friends, helping the community to be a better, cleaner, safer place to live and more likely than not, still holding down a career that not only helps out the family by bringing home the bacon but gives her life a sense of satisfaction and self expression that she may have neglected back in the day.
Dinner these days is far more likely to be multi-vegetable salads, soups with some choice protein rich meat tossed in for energy, taste and brain power or a delicious BLT sandwiches and a lot less likely to be a pot roast or full turkey dinner.
Today’s Mom is s busy and on the go and she’s expanded her interests when it comes to life, art, education, entertainment, politics, philosophy, religion, exercise, health etc. So your Mother’s Day gifts should reflect your acknowledgement of the fact that Mom isn’t some old lady living in a shoe, she’s now a pretty radically cool and hip character and needs to be both treated and gifted as if she is a “person” as well as “parent!
