If you and your mother aren't particularly close, a once-a-year, fancy-pants Mother's Day brunch can be more than a little awkward. There's the forced small talk, the uncomfortable silences, the potential for mimosa-induced drunken blathering.

So this year, branch out a little, and do something with your mom that'll lead to a little more bonding and a lot less weird squirming over eggs.

10. Take her to see The Big Wedding
It's a family-focused chick flick starring lots of old school stars. Perfect mom fodder. And since it's a movie, you don't have to worry about awkward conversation revolving around your current dating life (or lack thereof).

9. Listen to some music.
The James L. Knight Center actually hosts a Mother's Day-specific concert, so you'll be surrounded by fellow Miaimans with their madres in tow. It's Stephanie Mills, so expect smooth tunes that should please moms of most musical persuasions.
