 Who this Sunday wants to be with her kids? Could careless if I get a gift? Frankly I feel my gift is being with my wife and son! Today we made the fondant and are making a cake then as I do every mothers day my friends are coming over and we will have a potluck brunch and play games and watch movies and do crafts with our kids.

I have seen postings where the mom hates the gift her hubby gave her

I have seen postings where the mom wants her spouse to take the kids away for the day!

I am sorry maybe cause I have lost a child to death I am grateful for the kids I have!

I dont think any mom's aren't grateful for the kids we have....but it is NICE to have ONE day a year to ourselves. I don't think its too much to ask. I love my kids and I am with them 24/7 I celebrate them everyday of my life..I think its time to celebrate me, for once.

There are a lot of moms who want to be with our kids and our spouses. We just don't see the need to advertise it because happy posts go nowhere.
The whiny posts, the complaining posts are what this place seems to thrive on.

Money is tight. I don't expect anything . Just having my dh and ds...and my baby kicking is fine with me. Would I like a gift? OF course it would be nice but sometimes life isn't about what we would like. I am blessed to be pregnant again and all I want overall is her to be born healthy.

Op you make it seen wanting time for ourselves is a bad thing.

 I don't particularly care about getting gifts, I think gifts are for children and would rather my dh spends money on our children then on me-but that's just me.

My mom used to have everyone over and she cooked and slaved... ha.

I prefer to take mom OUT for her day.  That is the point, isn't it? Give Mom a little break from the drudgery?
