By Molly Thornberg |

What do moms really want on mother's day?All of these years as a mom, I’ve felt slightly guilty for pushing aside my husband and kids and declaring it the day of MOM. While I make sure that I see my kids on Mother’s day, truth be told – I would just love to spend the day in the pedicure chair decompressing. Just one day a year, I don’t mind being selfish and declaring it a me day.

Good news, apparently I am NOT alone is wanting to be alone! Plum District surveyed more than 19,000 of it’s members to get this data and I have to say, I am in align with the majority of this one.
