Which Milwaukee Mother’s Day is Perfect for You? | A Quiz and a “Momwaukee” Giveaway from The Corners of Brookfield


Is there anything better than opening your eyes at the crack of dawn on Mother’s Day to the smell of toast burning, the sound of kids fighting over whose turn it is to use the red marker, or to the sight of your whole crew bursting through your bedroom door carrying a breakfast they cooked just for you? No matter how you became a mother, this day is for YOU. It may be perfectly imperfect and sometimes laced with twinges of emotions that we aren’t sure how to handle, but Mother’s Day is meant to be a day that you get to pause for just a moment and allow yourself to be celebrated for another year of doing your very best as Mom. 

Our partners at The Corners of Brookfield want to celebrate with you and we all know how hard it can be to answer the dreaded question when it comes — “What do you want for Mother’s Day?” The obvious answers are all there (a nap, a break, 2 hours to wander Target alone), but this fun little quiz can help you determine what sort of gift package just might be the perfect fit for you this Mother’s Day!

It’s the Momwaukee Mother’s Day Quiz! 

This post and giveaway is sponsored by The Corners of Brookfield, the destination for dining, retail, lifestyle and entertainment right of I-94 in Brookfield! Offering everything from free family fun to luxury shopping to fabulous dining and fitness options, there is truly something for everyone at The Corners of Brookfield

What Kind of Milwaukee Mother's Day is Perfect for You?

1. You wake up on Mother’s Day morning and the first question you are asked is, “What do you want to do today?” How do you respond? 

A. The sun is shining – let’s lace up our boots and head to Lapham Peak for a hike!
B. Pack the snacks, grab the sunscreen, fill up the water bottles. We’re going to the zoo and we’re gonna splurge on feeding the giraffes.
C. A day of solo pampering sounds perfect – maybe a mani/pedi, a massage, or a spa treatment! 
D. I’d love to try out a new restaurant we’ve been dying to go to or maybe even take a cooking class to learn how to make something new!
E. Nothing. I want to do a whole lot of nothing!  

2. Your ideal Mother’s Day meal is……

C. Avocado on thick-cut toast that will look fantastic on my Instagram.
D. An international-inspired meal I’ve created myself with ingredients my kids would never touch. 
E. Literally anything that someone else makes that I don’t have to clean up. Bonus points if I get to eat it at its intended temperature. 

3. Someone you love brings you a bouquet for Mother’s Day. Which one would make you smile the biggest?

A. Tulips – simple and hearty, the first signs of spring after the long winter
B. Orchid – they take a lot of tender care, but it’s so worth it
C. A variety of wildflowers – the combination is always so much more beautiful
D. A cluster of herbs – lovely to look at and easy to plant and grow more
E. Whatever was on special for $3.50 at Trader Joe’s. 

4. When selecting a gift for someone else on Mother’s Day, what do you tend to choose?

A. An experience they will enjoy with those they love
B. Something useful that feeds their passions
C. Something that gives them a chance to recharge, that they might not ever choose for themselves
D. A gift card to a restaurant I know they’ll love or meal/grocery delivery
E. A heart-felt text message and possibly a card from Target

5. If your motherhood style was represented by a Milwaukee landmark, which one would fit you best?

A. The Domes – Adventurous, Experiential, Active
B. The Milwaukee Public Museum – Hands-on, Interactive, Inspired 
C. The Milwaukee Art Museum – Loves to slow down and appreciate each moment
D. The Milwaukee Public Market – Flexible, Individualized, Loves trying new things
E. The Hoan Bridge – Let’s be real, you’re sort of white-knuckling this whole thing.
