Want Some Alone Time on Mother's Day? Send Dad and the Kids Off to Make This Cool Bird Mobile

May 3, 2011 by Mom Jeanine

In the last few weeks, I can’t tell you the number of moms I’ve heard say all they want for Mother’s Day is some alone time. Myself included. Of course we love our families, but for a lot of moms the ultimate Mother’s Day gift would really just be to sleep in.

And thanks to Etsy, you might just get that wonderful gift. They just launched this cool How-To video with Joel Henriques of madebyjoel.com in which he explains how to make that awesome bird mobile shown above.

It’s genius really. Share this link with dad and let him know how much you’d love to have one of the mobiles to hang in the kitchen or in the play room or wherever. Then he and the kids can wake up early on Sunday to make your mobile, while you rest peacefully for a few extra hours. Total win-win, right?
