Reading an earlier question (where the debate was already sparked) got me curious. Personally, I don't care if my husband doesn't get me anything for MD. Ever since I was pregnant with his first (my second) child though, he has. Infact, he was overseas when we found out about the pregnancy and a few short months later came MD, he sent me 3 bouquets of flowers over 3 days for the occasion. It was really sweet, we weren't even married yet. The years to follow, the gifts from him on MD have diminished but that's okay! I'm not his mom :) but on the other hand, it is nice when the father of your kids (whether you're married to him or not) shows appreciation for you on Mother's Day. That being said, even a simple "Happy Mother's Day" from him is enough for me.

I'm not sure the word appropriate is the one I'd use, but I AM a mother, the mother of his child and a good one at that :) So yes, he should acknowledge it and he does, not just Mothers Day but everyday. Other people whom I am not a mother to wish me a happy day, so why wouldn't my own husband?
