So.. I never expect a gift. Not for my birthday, not for Valentines and certainly not for Mothers Day. I just want to make that clear. My SO is just not that kind of guy and we struggle financially so it just isn't a big deal. Our love is usually all we need! lol.
To be honest the entire month of May pretty much makes me miserable..Makes me think too much about my Mom and how much I wish she was still here. I have been an emotional wreck and crying all the time. I'm sure many of you understand.
With that being said, I am actually enjoying my day now! I must be crazy too since my SO just started 2 days ago QUITTING CIGARETTES. Idk why now was the best time. To me though, ANY time is a good time to quit. I am behind him 100%
Now that in itself (if he succeeds) is pretty much one of the best gifts I could ever ask for. Lol. Still, I can't help but bitch a little bit because he hasn't ONCE said Happy Mother's Day even though he KNOWS what day it is. We've talked about it. He has been nasty and mean all day and I am supposed to be supportive. I have been as much as I am able.
I have done all of the cooking and cleaning ( like every day ) and listened to him bitch and moan all day long. I have babied him. I've even given him a little "something something" to help distract and calm him. All I can say is THANK GOD he is taking a nap right now.
Somehow, I am very happy. My son FINALLY called me Mommy and it just made all of the stress melt away. He is TRULY the greatest gift.
So that is my Mother's Day confession. It hasn't been the greatest day and while I would enjoy some appreciation or a Mother's Day gift, it really doesn't matter. To all you Mamas out there who maybe haven't had the best day and you WANT to complain. THIS is your post. Tell me how you feel. BECAUSE YOUR FEELINGS MATTER. I won't look down on you for making a self-centered mommy post. We all deserve to think about ourselves every once in a while.
Whether your day was good, bad or in between..
