Anyone need to borrow this?

Off to do assorted things, but I'm sure this will come in handy when the official "I wasn't spoiled enough for Mother's Day" questions and group posts start rolling in.

Funny Sympathy Ecard: I'm sorry your husband didn't go into debt for Mother's Day and the handmade gifts from your children weren't good enough.

  • hahaha...not me!

    breakfast was good, not stellar or award-winning Chefery..but good, and well-intended. eggs benedict, minus the i woke up feeling not-so-swift in the tummy region.
    i received a balloon bouquet rather than flowers..because, and i quote ds, ''i like balloons better.'', and a sudoku puzzle book..again, i quote the ds, ''these are like secret codes, mom!''
    the sun is shining, the tank is clean, i have enjoyed a quiet morning, DIY television and the normal hum of the laundry room. all in all, a great Mother's Day.
    no complaints here!

  • I have never felt this way, everyday appreciation and love is good enough for me, flowers and other gifts are only a sugar topping.....the best gift they can give me is respect and love daily not just on the one day. But It is funny!!!!!

  • Hearing my son say "Happy Mother's Day, Mom" and giving me a kiss is the best gift to receive. I don't need anything material.


    Answer by Simplicity3 at 1:00 PM on May. 13, 2012

  • I don't need material gifts at all. My son's hugs and thoughtfulness enough.

  • This household didn't come close to the $150.00 average. It's been a good day. Kids are healthy and happy, and hubs and I are blessed and grateful that they are with us. We don't need anything.

  • My kids have always given me a card, usually handmade and then they make dinner for me. I like it a lot. (They always use the food I have already got too. lol
    Sad note is that DGS is with his mom instead of me today, as it should be but I am still sad lol.
