Dear Dish-It: No Money for Mother’s Day

Dear Dish-It,

I love my mom with all my heart but I have no money so I can’t get her a really nice gift for Mother’s Day. I feel really bad; what can I do?

Broke Kid

Dear BK,

Sounds like you and your mom have a wonderful relationship – I’m sure that as long as she knows that you love and support her, she won’t care whether or not you can afford to buy her a fancy present for Mother’s Day.

Fab & Free

The best gift – your love – doesn’t cost anything. There are lots of other ways to show your mom how much you care without having to spend a cent:

  • Make dinner for her one day – or even just a sweet treat for dessert!
  • Offer to babysit your little brother or sister so that she can have the afternoon off.
  • Make her a card that tells her how much you love and appreciate her.
  • Cook breakfast in bed and surprise her with it on Mother’s Day.
  • Clean your room – or even the whole house – without waiting for her to ask you to do it.
  • Make a date to have a stay-at-home movie night – just you and her!

Have Your Say

Got any good advice for Broke Kid? Leave your comment below!

Thanks,

Dear Dish it

I'm not lesbian, so I don't know how you exactly feel,, but I can relate to losing friends. The "friends" you lost weren't really your friends at all, they were just judgmental people who should be ashamed to call themselves 'friends'. People are getting meaner and meaner, but you don't need to care about them  [s:sm3/1jw3] they don't matter at all

Sometimes I swear but I try not to do it around my teachers, parents or adults. I get away with a little bit at home but not too much.

I say stuff like, "Who with the what now!", "What the what!", "What the freak!" The last one might not be such a good one but hey it's not exactly cursing.
