Posted Sunday May 13, 2012 10:46 PM GMT

Observing the holiday that gives thanks to the women who raised us, Rihanna treated her mom, Monica Braithwaite, to a delectable Mother's Day dinner on the town in New York City on Sunday evening (May 13).

Fresh off of a trip to the tattoo parlor, the 24-year-old donned a navy and white tummy-revealing ensemble while picking up a pretty bouquet of pink flowers to dote unto her mother during the course of their time together.

Earlier in the day, Rihanna was her usual busy self on Twitter while sending out a string of well-wishing messages to the moms, single dads and those who are without their moms.

First posting a tweet just for her mom, the "We Found Love" hitmaker wrote, "#Mama....u my ride or die b***h for life!!! And yes I know a b***h slap is on the way for my language! But u get it!!!!! I love you"

Shooting out the more general words to follow, RiRi exclaimed, "Happy mother's day to all superwomen out thurr! Every day is your day. And a happy mother's day to all the dads doin it alone #1LOVE"

She then capped of the warm sentiments with, "Sending out special love to those who lost their mothers! *HUGS*"

Meanwhile, Rihanna previously spoke with ELLE about her retired accountant mom's reliable nature, saying, “I still don’t know how she did it. She always protected us—she would never let us know when we had problems, even financially. I still got to go and get a perm every four weeks."
