Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Best of Spring Loungewear
By

All Moms want/need/must have time off, time to themselves. So on Mother’s Day, treat her with a day all to herself. Here’s how it works: Choose the day (it doesn’t need to actually be on Mother’s Day). Wrap up a Mother’s Day gift of cozy-but-fabulous spring loungewear. (NOTE: This is NOT lingerie – the goal is comfy and cool not sex-pot. You want her to feel beautiful and relaxed, not guilty because the last thing she wants to do is throw on that bustier). Throw in a great book or trashy magazine. Then, when the day arrives, make sure the house is picked up, and take the kids OUT OF THE HOUSE. Otherwise, despite your very best efforts they will still find their way over to mom. When you return…voila! A happy, relaxed mom. And we all know that happy mom = happy family.
Here are my favorite comfy-cool Spring loungewear picks:

The Case for Full Panel Maternity Pants

I was suspicious of panels in general, and therefore stuck to under-the-belly styles as a rule, but the full panel was downright mind boggling. Who would wear those things? Who would want a piece of fabric stretching from basically your crotch to under your boobs? How is that comfortable? And, god forbid, what if you raised your arms and people actually saw the panel? Horror, I know.
