6 sweet things moms want you to say this Mother's Day

We get it, whispering sweet nothings to your spouse when screaming kids are around might not seem like an attainable goal. But on Mother's Day, we moms have earned our right to be waited on and showered with gifts of all kinds — even if it's just words. Whether it's "wow you look good in those jeans" or "I'd love to give you a massage after all you do so much for our family" — we're all a sucker for some schmoozing.

See what these moms said they really want to hear this Mother's Day — you may be surprised!

  1. "Let me do that for you." -- Ilina Ewen, Dirt and Noise

  2. "Good Morning. Here's your coffee. You have an all-day appointment at the spa. Don't worry about the kids. I'll do the laundry, the football games and the cleaning. We'll meet you for dinner in 10 hours. Oh, and I got you a new book. {NONE of these things would ever be spoken, btw.}" -- Hot Mess Mom

  3. "Of course, I'd love to give you a hour long massage, honey!" -- Fadra Nally, All Things Fadra

  4. "I know I don't say it often enough but you're a great mom." -- Trish, Life in the DayngrZone

  5. "You're amazing, and our kids are better people because of what you do." -- Michelle M, Gotcha Baby

  6. "Thank you for being the best mom our kids could have. I know how hard you work at it, and I want you to know it doesn't go unnoticed." -- Tara Ziegmont, Feels Like Home
