Once again, Mother's Day has snuck up on me. It does this to me every year, the sneaky little bastard, and every year, I frantically scramble. Did I do flowers last year or a pedicure? Or was it just a frilly card with a side of guilt?
I might be down to the wire " again " but that doesn't mean it's hopeless. Here are some last-minute Mom's Day ideas.The Oklahoma City Museum of Art
is once again offering free admission to moms when accompanied by a paying family member (that'd be you). The museum just opened its latest exhibit, "Sketch to Screen," so this is a great time to visit. (Seriously, even if you're momless, go check it out. They are even displaying Keira Knightley's slinky, green "Atonement" dress, which makes me think of James McAvoy. And anything that makes me think of James McAvoy is wonderful.)
Other downtown museums are also offering the "moms get in free" deal, including the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
and the newly opened American Banjo Museum
in Bricktown. (What? Yes. Banjos.)
Sticking to Bricktown, there's RedPin Bowling Lounge
and Water Taxi
. Add in brunch somewhere (maybe La Baguette at the Colcord), and you've fulfilled your duties for the year. It can be back to being the forgetful progeny for another 11 months without an ounce of shame.
