On every 2nd Sunday of May, we celebrate the love that gave us life. She tirelessly runs after us to ensure we’re drinking enough water and tidies up our trail of messes to ensure we’ll always find everything when we need it. She also selflessly cuts up fruits for us and boils herbal soups to remind us to care for ourselves.

And more often than not, she tells us that she doesn’t need anything else in the world except to see us succeed. Whether your mom’s the evergreen fashionista, a celebrity chef or the OG practitioner of sustainable living, here are 7 things to do with momma bear this weekend!

*Activities are arranged from the most recent event date.
