This is my first Mother's Day. I spent years assiduously avoiding this holiday, as I had a long and painful road to motherhood, and it felt like one more trumped-up moment to make me feel lacking, rife with clichés and shallow assumptions about what motherhood should be.
Now that I'm a mama to a glorious little 15-week-old daughter, I approach my first Mother's Day with deep gratitude. But I don't want brunch or a tea party. One of these 10 things would be more of a treat — maybe you or someone you know, as a new mom, can relate.
