How Do I Thank My Mom?

Category Advice

My mom is so happy about my 13th birthday and she is spending sooooo much money. She is taking 5 kids to wild adventures amusement park ( and she is taking us to a Ryan Cabrera concert. We are renting a hotel and staying overnight. I feel really guilty. How can I show my mom that I care and appreciate everything she's doing? Something that's better than a "thank you" and better than a box of chocolate.

I'm guessing you must be a pretty special kid if your mom is doing all this for you, and you must already be doing the right things!
Keep it up, and let her know every day that you love her and appreciate all she does for you.

Dear Haley,
You are going to have so many ways to let your Mom know how much you appreciate all that she does for you now. For now, just tell her how much you love her and how much she means to you.


In the future, give her every reason you can find to
be proud of you. Your bahavior, your grades, your
choice of friends, and your attitude will go further than you can imagine in thanking her for what she
is doing today, and all the many things she'll be doing for you in the future. Show her how proud you
are of being her daughter by making her proud of you. As the mother of 3 lovely daughters, I can promise you that there is no better way to say, "Thanks Mom. I appreciate you."

I agree with the other poster. A big hug, kiss and a note telling her just how much you love her and appreciate what she's doing is probley enough. Don't feel guilty, you mom wouldn't do it if she didn't really want to. So be Happy!! And Happy 13th Birthday to you.

Just today I was going through my son's (32 tomorrow) possessions to see which ones I should pack and save for him to look at. The most treasured ones are the notes and cards that he sent me. It was so heartwarming to remember those moments in his life. Write her a nice letter and she will treasure it always.

Tell her what you wrote on this article. Tell her how much you appreciate her. Tell her how cool she is then ask her if there is something you can do for her in return and do it without complaining.


I guarantee she will continue to lavish you with special treats and favors.

I am a mom, and going through my 'memory book' (a book of family photos and things my children have made in school projects, etc) I found a mini book by my eldest daughter (now 16, but going on 40). She made this when she was about 6 or 7 at school. Titled 'Why I Love My Mommy'. You could do something similar to that.

Your mom must be doing a lot right to have a daughter so young to know how to show love in such a touching way. It is nice to hear about things like this in today's world. Smile and know that you are so very lucky, you know how to give and receive love.

There is nothing in any store, catalogue, or boutique that she could buy me that would mean as much to me or remain as close to my heart as something she has made with her own two hands, with a loving heart, using her precious time.

always show your love.....but another way to show her some appreciation would to be by doing things she doing dishes, laundry, vacumming, any task she has to do on a regular basis.....she will be thankful at the end of her day if she gets a little more sit down time because her caring daughter did a few of her chores......moms love lots of hugs, homemade things, kids that need little discipline and less work to do........which creates smiling moms, thus smiling children, from the sounds of things you have alot of that going around, you must have a very good attitude and a very nice mom...enjoy your trip.....

I think the best gift would be a heartfelt note telling her just how special she is and how much you appreciate the little things she does that add up to so much. Think about the things she does that you don't really notice, but take for granted.


Things like laundry and neatly folded clothes so you look nice and cooking your eggs just the way you like them. Make her cry... LOL! Leigh Ann, a mom to two boys too little to appreciate much yet...

Have a toast during the party to thank your mom--be sure to give her a few sincere comments that you prepare ahead of time and give lots of hugs. Get your friends to hoot and clap. Make sure they know that you appreciate this since they too may feel guilty or feel that you are really really spoiled. (<:
Good p.r. move all around!
Finally, be sure to write a nice note or card or make dinner or breakfast in bed for your mom. Help her more. Offer rather than being told. Do things that need doing and surprise her with taking on a big project once in a while, like organizing the garage or mowing the lawn, washing and waxing the car(s), etc. Make sure she is included in your life. She is clearly trying to make you happy and making another person happy is easy to do. You'll find that reciprocating is wonderful.

A special mom and a special kid. Wow! What a combination. How about giving your mom a special card you really hunt for which tells her how important she is to you. And tell her you want to put your energy behind your words. On separate pieces of paper, write down some things (one to a piece) you know she would really appreciate you doing for her, and end it with "on demand".


That way when she needs something done for her she knows how much you really do mean what you say. I did this once for my mother-in-law and she loved it. She didn't ask for many of them, but she got the message. You can decide what to put the pieces of paper in. I made a basket of flowers, and put each piece into an empty plastic egg left over from Easter.
