It’s true. Your mother is your single most favourite woman in the world, and the two of you share a bond like no other. Through your childhood she has cared for you, nurtured you and guided you. She’s brought you where you are today. But now that you’re all grown up and a beautiful woman in your own right, it’s time to reconnect with your mom. Because now, you are equals. You are best friends. Here are a few activities that will definitely bring you a little closer together.
1. Grab some popcorn and have a movie marathon.
There’s something about a movie and popcorn that just never loses its charm. Find movies that you’d both enjoy and just forget about the rest of the world for a couple of hours.
2. Have a sumptuous lunch date.
Taking an hour out from your busy schedules is not as difficult as it seems initially. Let a sumptuous meal in a pleasant place be a breath of fresh air in your humdrum lives. Not having to cook before and clear up after is an added bonus!
3. Go on a shopping spree together.
Hands down, your mother’s tastes and impeccable style can give any fashionista a run for her money. Besides, who could possibly be a more supportive and honest shopping buddy?
4. Raid her wardrobe and try her favorite saris on.
She carries off saris with an ease and poise that amazes you every time, and you know you’ve always wanted to be able to replicate that. Take some time out and learn the tricks of the trade. After all, practice makes perfect!
5. Head out for some heavy duty pampering at a spa.
Let’s face it, you could both use a good massage. Take this opportunity to de-stress and unwind together. You know what they say, you’re worth it!
6. Join hands in the kitchen and rustle up a meal just for the two of you.
Get together in the kitchen and prepare an elaborate meal – just for yourselves. Who said ghar ka khana has to be boring and repetitive?
7. Relive the old times with the household favourite games.
Every family has a favourite game. Be it Ludo, Snakes and Ladders, Antakshari or Dumb Charades – if you enjoyed it as a child, chances are you’ll have even more fun as grown ups.
8. Pull out the dusty old family albums and take a trip down memory lane.
Old really is gold. Now that you’re grown up enough to understand your family better, you’ll be amazed at how much you’d missed when you’d looked at these photographs earlier!
9. Share anecdotes and harmless little secrets you’d kept from her as a child.
While as a child you had to watch your step around the rules that adults set for you, as a grown up, some of the things that you hid from your parents turn out to be quite hilarious. Spill the beans on your silly little secrets! She might surprise you with a few of her own.
These are some fun things to do with your parents.
