mother's day is next!

Posted by   + Show Post

how do you typically celebrate it in your home?  do you get gifts?  get "the day off"?  is it truly your day where you get to do what you want?

i'll get a "happy mother's day" from the kids & hubby, maybe even a card & we'll go out to dinner, but rarely to where i'd want to go (hubby & kids aren't into thai, indian, etc.).  but hubby works every sunday so i'll still be doing the usual; taking care of the kids, making breakfast & lunch, laundry if needed.  doesn't bother me though, i'm told daily by my kids & hubby how much they love & appreciate me.  don't need a day set aside for them to let me know how much they care & how much i mean to them.

I get gifts from my husband and little ones. My husband plans a day of fun and surprises for me.

Last Mother's Day, it was also my son's 4th birthday, so after work I took him to Chuck E Cheese's, for the first time.  Everyday is Mother's Day, to me, so it's no big deal for me.

:D my bidding is where I lock myself in my bedroom and refuse to be disturbed unless the house is burning down...I also require all my meals delivered. It works for us!

If it gets remembered, I will probably get a card and dh will cook dinner. Once my aunt had a dinner and my mom was there so I got to spend it with her also, I really liked that and hope e do that again this year. We also usually go to my MILs house for a few hours.
