Rare and Elissa the Mom are celebrating Mother’s Day all week. Follow along at @ElissatheMom on Twitter and Facebook.

Find everything you need (or really want) for Mother’s Day here ==>

Let’s not beat around the bush here. It’s Mother’s Day, but I don’t want flowers or crafts or a box of chocolates … all I really want is for someone to make the darn bed!

Show this to your husband. Show this to your kids. Show this to everyone … they’re probably making their own bed wrong anyway.

Just a few tips:

  • Buy new sheets (and wash them)
  • Strip the bed
  • Fitted sheet on the box spring
  • Top sheet goes on upside down
  • Military fold
  • Turn down your bed each night
