I remember when we were kids and we didn’t have enough money for a gift for our Mom, we would make here a whole fancy card and inside a note promising to behave. Of course, my mother made a big deal out of it and how it was the best gift she could get etc. (didn’t last too long I’m afraid)

A relaxing day with no fighting would be nice! Maybe an hour alone to get a pedicure too?!
Yep that’s 100% true on all of them and yet there still is no way to do them all in 1 day.
