Are you spending Mothers' Day w/ your kid(s)?

I see a lot of Mothers' Day gifts are a day away from mothering or a mother's day out. I know the preggos are surely spending it w/ their babies. But what about everyone else? Will you be taking a break as a gift? Doing something w/ the whole family? Or having a regular Sunday plus a few flowers and chocolates? My DD's only 18mos and has never gone a day w/out me, so I won't be starting soon. I don't think I'm getting a gift from her either. Lol. So I just got myself a new sling.

  • I will be with my kids! We will go to my FDH's grandmother's for a barbecue. Other than that, it will be just like any other day!

  • I request things that we can do as a family. Mother's Day is a day that I can ask to do something special that I can't normally fit into our schedule or I keep trying to plan it and it never comes to fruition. To me, this is a day to be with my children, not away from them. Granted, I spend every other day with him and a break would be nice, lol. I think that this is a day to have special trips and do special things to make it not just another day. I can try to get a break any other day.

  • As long as I get to spend the day enjoying my babies, it was a good day.  There is nowhere else I'd rather be.

    And FTR, my youngest (18 months on the 13th) has never been away from me for a day. The longest has been the duration of a dental appointment for me.  The only times my older two have been away from me is while I was in the hospital having their siblings. :)
