Am I pitiful or pathetic for buying my own mother's day gift?

I am a single mom and I saw a jewelry set on sale that I really liked. I decided to take my boys and let them help me buy it so that it is from them.

  • not at all. my husband hasn't gotten me anything the past 2 yrs. when other girls I knew got something on Mothers Day while they were pg, my hubby said your noth a mother yet..... go figure and he didn't get me anything this yr. He doesn't get me anything for my birthday, tells me to go buy me something nice. This yr I bought myself flowers and a few clothes. But I told him I wanted him to get me something thoughtful this yr

  • I think is fine to treat yourself, don't wait until next mother's day to do it again. Darn it you deserve it!

  • If you don't pick it out, how will you get something you really wanted?!? lol My kids are 3 and 1 so... I pick my stuff. I'm giving hubs a chance to do it this year, but if he tanks it, I'm getting myself something!
