So....a few things about planning an awesome Mother's Day surprise for your wife. Like, say you planned an awesome surprise and she would unexpectedly be going to dinner at a nice restaurant with friends, these are just a few little considerations to, well, consider.
1- If you've noticed that she has worn the same outfit (gym clothes, no less) for two days in a row, early in the day you might mention that she might consider taking a shower. Maybe comb her hair. And if she's feeling extra ambitious maybe she ought to put on some deodorant. She may seem offended at first and perhaps she won't speak to you for a while, call you a jerk behind your back or whatever, but when she shows up to said restaurant and notices that all of her friends are wearing cute skirts and have brushed their teeth, she will forgive you.
2-You would also be wise to inform her to feed the baby before you send her on her way or else you may be in for a looooong night. And she won't even feel bad, at least not really bad.
3- If your wife is sporting a triple chin you might suggest, ever so kindly, that she might like to wear a scarf or something because undoubtedly Ralphie will take pictures of the triple chin and post them on the internet for all to see. What a gal.
