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

​Dear Dish-It,              I have a huge crush on this really cute boy named Austin. He is so sweet and shares many character traits as me. I am super worried since next year we have our first dance and I'm worried about if he'll ask me. But, that's beyond the point. His best friends keep telling me that he is madly in love with me so I really want to talk to him. I am so worried about what will happen though. We are already great friends and I don't want to ruin what we have no. I am so confused. Please, please help! :love :mad :sad PS. Did I mention that I have a HUGE crush on him?                        Sincerely, Love-Sick and Confused Youre worried about a dance for next year? ​Anyway, just talk to him, and maybe even tell him how you feel.
