I'd just like to compliment you and yours on the thoughtfulness towards your mother and her 'big' birthday.

I'll turn 60 next April and know full well my kids won't plan anything at all to help me celebrate. It's not that they're not lovely kids, but I've clearly missed out a life lesson or two in the Taking Care of Mum section of their education.
Thinking of dragging myself off to a spa for the duration..... on my own!
Thank you for your kind comment! My mom was widowed very young and still managed to raise her four children (ages 3 to 9 when my dad passed away) into model citizens despite having little help from family and very limited financial means. We owe her A LOT, it's really the least we could do.

Aside from this one exception, though, we're really not big on birthdays. Every family expresses their love in their own way, maybe your kids will surprise you
