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

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3
