My mom makes it easy. She doesn't want a big production. Like me she hates dealing with crowded brunches. She also gets it's my day too so I should get to do with what i want. Issue is the in laws. For years we did what mil and sil wanted until the day we drove around for 2 hours trying to find a place for brunch. It was a nightmare and I was pregnant with my youngest. First place line was too long second place line longer so back to first but line even longer plus because they'd get mad my kid never are eventhough we are up a good 3 hours before them I didn't feed him. I lost it in the car. After that my oldest was in baseball and would have games and that was fine with me.
Well I guess other moms don't like playing on Mother's Day so now no games and back to this issue. Dh is great he gets it's my day too so no more running around. This year since with 2 kids now in baseball being home on a weekend is a novelty and yesterday I didn't want to go anywhere. Well aside from a badly planned tripped to grocery store where I think other moms had same thought. Who goes grocery shopping in moms day? Don't ask ;) but I got my do nothing day which was awesome because I was up all night but I guess now I'm a b'tch because I didn't want to spend it at sil.
I mean am I wrong? Am I not a mom too? If you get to stay home why can't i? Im never home especially on a Sunday. The kids got to play in yard, I got to nap. They still got to see grandma later in the day too.
