  • Mothers day isn't about the gifts, it's about celebrating being a mom. Not everyone is as blessed as we are. I don't need gifts for Mothers Day, I need to hear my sons voices. My oldest is in the Military stationed in Afghanistan and I would give anything to hug him right now :)

  • My 5 yr old made me a few pictures at school for mother's day, and I think my middle son has something for me (or so the 5yr old said) as for hubs and my oldest--- they are not getting me anything. Heck I will be lucky if I get told happy mother's day!

  • I doubt I will either; its not about material objects to me but even though I am mommy to my unborn baby girl due in August I would still like for my husband to acknowlege that I am "mom" to her and our 3 furry babies. He expects me to recognize him on fathers day so I think it only fair for him to at least do something nice for me like making me breakfast or just letting me sleep in for once.

  • Me. It's just me and DS. He's only 3 so I'm pretty sure he won't be getting me anything lol! Oh wait. I did get a rose from my 4 year old nephew at dinner tonight. I was touched. I almost started crying!

  • I hate Mother's Day for this reason. I get a card or some flowers. Yes, it's acknowledged in some way but there's absolutely NO THOUGHT behind the gifts. These are "default" gifts imo. Holiday, birthday coming up? Gee, I'll get some flowers. I HATE FLOWERS! Every year, I ask for the same thing ... a day to myself ... what I get is a day like every other.
