Well, Mother’s Day doesn’t really need an introduction. It’s one of the most special annual holidays celebrated in the United States on the second Sunday of May.
And this year, the opportunity to make all the loving mothers feel special is arriving on 14th May.
Generally speaking, it’s a day when motherhood is celebrated and valued, and mothers are recognized for their contribution to their society, which is actually something that’s worthy of recognition every single day of the year.
A Little History
Mother’s Day was started as an effort of American social activist Anna Jarvis. She vowed to have an annual holiday in the United States dedicated to mothers, which was inspired by the death of her mother. In fact, she campaigned all her life to have a Mother’s Day in the United States.
Needless to say, her journey to seeking national recognition for mothers in the country was full of struggles. During the 1900s, women’s rights were not as widely recognized as they are today, so her efforts were never taken seriously for a long time. The society being male dominated didn’t help, either.
However, Jarvis finally found a breakthrough when she managed to arrange a Mother’s Day event in West Virginia, on May 8, 1908. It became a success as over 400 children and their mothers became a part of the event. But she continued her efforts for a national level recognition.
And the day finally came when she got the opportunity to appeal for the day directly to the then President, Woodrow Wilson, who made Mother’s Day an official national annual holiday in 1914.
How to Make It Extra Special?
Well, it goes without saying that mothers usually live a difficult life. This is especially true if they are not a stay-at-home mom, and have both professional and personal responsibilities to take care of.
And this is precisely where our nanny service can come in and bring about a lasting, positive change in your (if you’re a mother yourself) or your mother’s life. It’s a way to value their contribution in a way that goes well beyond a one-day celebration.
If you’re a new mom and have demanding professional responsibilities, there’s probably no better way to use Mother’s Day as an opportunity to change your life for good by getting a loving, caring nanny for your little one. A good nanny is sure to bring about an overall positive change in your family as a whole, and in your life in particular – a change that you and others in your family will probably continue to cherish for years to come.
