Mother’s Day 2017 in CT

posted by yazmin

I don’t need anything fancy for Mother’s Day. My ideal Mother’s Day involves being allowed to sleep in late and not being responsible for laundry, dishes, or dirty diapers. If you throw in some homemade breakfast and mimosas then I’m a happy camper.

This year, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14, 2017. Many of Connecticut’s most popular destinations are rewarding moms for all of their hard work with free admission.

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you have a special day.
