My husband asked what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day since we’ll likely still be in quarantine and I said wanted to get day drunk on pink wine and spend the day in bed eating cheesecake and to be honest that’s basically what I want every year— Vision Bored (@VisionBored1) April 21, 2020

All I want for Mother’s Day is to sleep for 9 straight hours, wake up to the sound of coffee brewing and then have my husband say things like, “I’m gonna entertain the kids all day so you can sit on the couch in your pjs and buy your Mother’s Day gift in peace!”— Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder) May 2, 2020

Hey dads, we have less than 2 weeks until Mother’s Day. Your children will not be making cards or gifts in school this year. Get to it. I’d hate to see any more preventable deaths.— Barry Schapiro, MD, FAAOS (@bschapiroMD) April 27, 2020
