What are you expecting for mothers day?

I'm expecting a gift from my 5 year old son that he will be making at school other than that, that's it. That's all I got last year DH didn't even say "happy mothers day" and he made DSS5 give his grandmother the stuff he made at school. I was pregnant with our first child together and honestly it did make me feel really bad that he couldn't at least say happy mothers day. I cried for days without him knowing just the thought of him not saying anything made me cry and I guess I was a little extra emotional since I was pregnant. But this year I honestly won't care if he doesn't say anything and if he gets me something I'm ready to say "wow! I was expecting the same thing you got me last year!" (shit!)

 I am expecting my girl to say Happy Mothers Day to me. Maybe to not be so teenagerish to me that day. Maybe just one eye roll instead of 5.

I do not expect my SS to do anything. Not because he's crappy, but because that day is for his mother. Not me.

Word.  Except add an "s" to the end of "SS".  SSs are adults - they should at the very least call BM and wish her  HMD....And 4 Less eyerolls in one day? That WOULD be mother's day :)

I don't have any expectations. I'm looking forward to spending the day with my kiddos. Maybe they will get together and make some Sunday morning pancakes. That would be fun!

Why don't you just tell your DH that you want to be acknowleged for mother's day? What's wrong with straight-up communication? He has no idea how you feel. Just tell him.

DS probably made something at school. It most likely involves his hand print on paper and a cute little poem that will make me cry.

SO took Monday off of work so that he can take me to the casino Sunday night. We already reserved a hotel (got a great price) and will get almost an entire day just to ourselves :p

I got my present early from DH. It's a ring with 3 heart's with diamonds and on the side says mom. Ss10 has been bringing little things all week that make me cry. Tomorrow we're spending the day at the lake.

I'm expecting exactly what I asked for. I don't play the hint game or even the expectation game. If I want something, I ask for it. A card made by the kids, a dessert and coffee at the Parisian place and taking the kids to a really fun park down the street from the restaurant. I can't be disappointed in what DH does or doesn't do for me if I don't speak up about what I want. Yes, husbands should know to at least say HMD (and mine would) but we aren't all dealing with the brightest crayons in the boxes... Aka the male species. ;-) I jest, I jest.

my dd will go above and beyond like she always does. she loves doing things to make people feel special. dh will most likely take her out  to get flowers for me. i dont expect it  its just what they do.

this year ss will be here. bm point blank said she doesnt want him around because  she is spending the day with her SO kids and he would be in the way.(i dont know how thats going to work  her so has 5 kids  5 bms and none of them want to be with their kids? by the way she makes all of them call her mom) i dont expect ss to do anything for me. but i know dh will take him shopping to for me. we get along  but i am not his mother, i dont try to be his mother  dont want to be his mother. i know he will act out all day because he knows he isnt wanted at home.
