With Mother's Day around the corner, we decided to reach out to some our favorite momma influencers to get the inside scoop on how they are going to spend their Mother's day 2020.

 - How do you plan to celebrate Mother’s Day?

I plan to celebrate Mother’s Day in quarantine with a catered lunch organized by my children. I picture myself dressed to the nines, glammed with a full face of makeup (oh how I’ve missed those days) and dazzled up in all my latest jewels. Hopefully it is a beautiful sunny day and we will have ‘quarantinis’ while we play a game of Mother’s Day trivia.”

 - What makes you feel special about being a mom? 

What makes me feel the most special is the way my children look at me with such admiration. They ask me questions and value my opinions. I love seeing my children all grown up and listening to them tell me about all of their achievements and accomplishments.

 - How do you plan to celebrate Mother’s Day?

I plan on doing some sort of morning workout and then having a nice big glass of cold brew outside on the front porch, hopefully, it will be a nice day! If the strawberry farms are open, I'd love to go strawberry picking with the family. Take out + a feel-good movie at night would be dreamy.”

 - What makes you feel special about being a mom? 

Being able to share memories with my children makes me feel special. I value the life lessons they have taught me along the way. Loving my children makes me feel special. Feeding my children, experiencing new things with my children makes me feel special. Solving a problem or fixing a hurt makes me feel special. Giving and receiving hugs and kisses from my children makes me feel special. A hi mom, how was your day and a genuine smile makes me feel special.”

I plan to celebrate Mother’s Day spending time with my family. Typically, we’re in New York for Mother’s Day, but this year we’re fortunate to be in Florida, where both my sister and her family, and Mother live. Everyone is going to come over for a big #FFactorapproved lunch in the backyard.”

 - What makes you feel special about being a mom?

The most special thing about being a mom is knowing you have the ability to change the world one child at a time.  My number one goal as a mother is to raise kind children.  Children that work hard, are respectful, do for others, are compassionate and will hopefully make the world a better place one day.”

“This Mother’s Day will certainly be different than years past. I plan to disengage from email, social media and most of my ‘devices’ and spend the day as simply as possible: playing with my kids, going for long walks (socially distanced, of course); and, as we’re out in the Hamptons sheltering in place at the moment, if the weather permits, we might try a picnic at the beach. I think simplicity is genius and just being present in the moment with my kids, is going to be the theme of this Mother’s Day.”

“I think whenever my kids do something I’m proud of, whether that’s being a good friend in their respective classrooms, or doing something kind for one another, it makes you feel like - in all of the wildly unchartered territory that comes with being a mom, and never quite knowing if your succeeding or failing, it’s those small special moments of realization that you may just be on the right track- are hugely rewarding and special.”

“Swimming and sunning with the girls while listening to dance music, making ice cream sundaes, and watching a 90’s flick like Father of the Bride.”

- What makes you feel special about being a mom?

“Everything! My girls are my whole world. I get the most pleasure from seeing how incredibly empathetic they are. They truly care about everyone, even people they don’t know. They want to heal everyone who is sick and genuinely worry about what’s going on in the world. I also love how devoted they are to one another. Seeing their bond is the most heartwarming aspect of my life.”

- How do you plan to celebrate Mother’s Day?

I don’t really have any plans. Will be by my in-laws and will probably be a chilled day. Maybe Martin will cook or something haha.”

- What makes you feel special about being a mom?

The community of women I have found who are also moms, especially new moms. It’s the best feeling to have a tribe that’s sole purpose is to be supportive.”

“This is a year of firsts, our first Easter inside, our first Passover without the big traditional family gatherings, of staying in when spring comes out. This Mother’s Day will surely be extra special because it will be the first time I’ve seen my Mama and Nanny in months due to quarantine. I’ve missed them terribly, and now that I have my Black Iris (www.shopblackiris.com) masks, I feel safe for all of us to gather together. My first embrace with my mom will be a very emotional one and I’m counting down the minutes!  I think now more than ever I’ve gotten to experience many important moments with my girls, being that we ARE 24/7 around each other. So a nice lunch with my closest family(sadly excluding my sister, mother-in-law and sister-in-law in NY) and a Zoom call with our extended family will have to do, and truthfully I couldn’t ask for anything else.

“Looking at my girls grow and become their own people is one of the greatest parts of being a mom. Their generosity, kindness and intelligence impresses me everyday. I couldn’t be more proud of them, their empathy, generosity, love and constant happiness. It makes me feel like the most special mom around. I thank my lucky stars everyday, they are the best blessings.

- How do you plan to celebrate Mother’s Day?

It will probably be pretty similar to the last eight weeks, as I’ve basically spent every second with my kids (😉), but I will definitely be FaceTiming with  my mom, mother-in-law, and grandmothers who I miss so much. I hope that maybe my hubby and daughters will let me sleep in and make me breakfast (but not in bed…that’s the most overrated experience ever, which us moms usually end up having to clean up 😂)”

- What makes you feel special about being a mom? 

I absolutely love being a mom and I feel special when I see the kindness that my girls constantly exude. They are positive, uplifting and so much fun (even in these uncertain times).”

- How do you plan to celebrate Mother’s Day?

I have no plans for Mother’s Day this year but sometimes no plans are the best plans! When I close my eyes, Mother’s Day looks like me sitting outside on a beautiful sunny day with a glass of wine surrounded by a beautiful lunch, with my daughter in my arms and my own mama by my side. When I open my eyes I remember we’re living in uncertain times and the world is a bit uneasy right now and what might make me feel most comforted is to help other mama’s in need… So that I might just do in whatever capacity possible.”

- What makes you feel special about being a mom? 

The unconditional love. The feeling just fills your entire body with warmth inside and makes you feel completed. You made that baby, you housed them and protected them while they were in your belly, and now you are introducing them to an entire universe. Ups, downs, happy moments and sad ones, you’re the one that shows them the way. Also, the folds in between the neck that I can kiss endlessly :)”

This is my very first Mother’s Day as a mom to 3- boys that is. Every year the boys surprise me with a special DIY keepsake that I will cherish forever. Little birdy told me Jayden and Asher have been hard at work crafting a rainbow hand-made necklace out of paper clips ! Looking forward to wearing that around my neck.”

- What makes you feel special about being a mom? 

Mothering three young children is no walk in the park—but these boys are my entire universe. They are our greatest accomplishment in this world. I don't want them to ever stop looking at me like I'm Superwoman. They make me feel like I can do anything, be anything. And that’s incredibly empowering. Plus, witnessing their brotherly bond blossom makes every second of our daily chaos & madness worth it.”
