Thanks to the Internet  (sites like Pinterest!) and thousands of aspiring Mom-Bloggers, there are millions of incredible ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day available to us! Recently, I found “The Mother’s Day Interview: What Your Child Thinks of You,” which is by far my favorite idea! This is the gift that keeps on giving year after year. It is something that Mom will love to read over and over again. The best part of this “gift” is that it truly is something a child is involved in.

By the age of 3-4 years, a child will likely be able to answer these questions, when an adult (Daddy!? Aunt Sue?! Grandma?!) reads them aloud. The adult interviewer should ask the questions and write the child’s exact answer. The child may also want to draw a picture to accompany the “interview.”  By age 7-8 years, a child can likely read and answer the interview questions on his/her own.

Imagine the joy Mom will feel whenever she reads (and re-reads) the “interviews” from years gone by!

*The Interviewer should note the child’s name and age at time of interview every year.

  1. What is something mom always says to you?
  2. What makes mom happy?
  3. What makes mom sad?
  4. How does your mom make you laugh?
  5. What was your mom like as a child?
  6. How old is your mom?
  7. How tall is your mom?
  8. What is her favorite thing to do?
  9. What does your mom do when you’re not around?
  10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
  11. What is your mom really good at?
  12. What is your mom not very good at?
  13. What does your mom do for her job?
  14. What’s your mom’s favorite food?
  15. What makes you proud of your mom?

If you are looking for a little something to add to Mom’s gift bag for Mother’s Day, stop at The Second Knob Gifts & Antiques and see our new line of Willow Tree Figurines, mom-themed signs and stitcheries, coffee mugs, pillows and tea towels!

Willow Tree Figurines are a beautiful collectable that Mom will cherish for years to come and a collection that you can continue to add to every holiday! Artist Susan Lordi hand-carves the original of each Willow Tree ® Sculpture. Using family and friends as models, she tries to capture a moment in time or express a feeling. Susan tries to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open, hoping to make it more personal and allowing the viewer to decide its meaning—which is why each sculpture is “faceless.” Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of figurative sculptures representing qualities and sentiments that help us feel close to others, heal wounds and treasure relationships. Willow Tree is an understated line that speaks in a compelling way—and will certainly “speak” to your Mom this Mother’s Day!
