Hurt Down to My Soul Today

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My family apparently forgot all about Mother's Day this year.  I haven't felt this low for a long time, and this may be the final straw.

Well said!

Quoting hip2it:

When my 8 yr old son befriended the autistic boy in class while all the kids picked on him, my status as mother was confirmed.



Again, when my 6 yr old daughter decided she wanted to volunteer at the local senior center.



And again, when my three year old says, "mom, I love you so much everything."



Every time a test is aced, a new friend is made, a hurdle is cleared, and my husband says, "wow, these guys are more entertaining than cable," my status as mother is appreciated.



Moreso, when complete strangers compliment how well behaved my kids are. When one voluntarily helps the other without a fight. Every, "you're the best, mom," all of the "mom, guess what I did!" and especially the "I love yous," and my status as appreciated mother is confirmed.



Wtf do I need a card, or some candy, jewelry, sleeping in, or whatever it is that everyone wanted but didn't get for? Especially over some holiday made up by a greeting card company? I'm not going to keep a card forever. Flowers die. I hate chocolate. I have more than enough jewelry, and I can sleep when I'm dead. These memories, however, I will keep forever.

Don't feel badly. I got screwed today too. I woke up to SO nagging at me to get the baby, I mumbled "It's Mother's Day"... he said "I don't give a fuck about Mother's Day, get the baby..." But he called his mommy to make sure he told his sweet, perfect, neglectful mommy of his who abandoned him when he was 6 to tell HER happy Mother's Day.... What the fuck ever.

Yeah, we'll see if he gets any special treatment on Father's Day OR his birthday this year. I don't give a fuck either.

I had to go buy SDs mom flowers and a gift per hubbys request for sd to give her mom. Meanwhile, I didn't get anything from hubby and son. :(
