About Mother's day, and truly feel bad for them. However, I think they feel so let down because they expect too much from this day. My 4 year old ds gave me my first Mothers Day gift Friday. It was a little mom survey from Pre K where he answered random questions on how much he loves mommy. It was so precious that I teared up. And my dh cleaned the house yesterday, and I don't think he even realized it was almost Mothers Day. The thing is they always tell me they love me & I get a few surprises along the way. Yes, I do sometimes feel taKen for granted, but that's part of being a mom. Happy Mothers Day!

I didn't know that Mother's Day was originally about peace.

I learned that the other day and since I'm single with no one to wish me HMD anyway, from now on, the day will be about peace and love. 

One love.

That's why I don't celebrate it. People are acting like of they don't get a spectacular gift and pampered and all that bs, they are not loved or valued as a mom. I have a few friends that have already texted me whining and complaining and its like do you really need a special day set aside to feel good as a mom. I know others who's husbands are over seas and would love just 10 minutes together and don't care about the presents but other women just b*tch and complain because there husbands didnt do anything offer them something. It just irritates me. I don't need a pampered day to feel validated as a mother. I did, however, send my mom flowers, a card, and some pictures of my daughter because we don't get go see each other very often.
Sorry, had to get that off my chest. Happy mother's day!

 I'm with you.  Mother's Day is a manufactured holiday to make money for greeting cards.  It's part and parcel to the idea that the better the gift the more they love you.  Eh, I got cheap drugstore perfume, a windchime, tea, a homemade cookbook, and a homemade bookmark.

Then, just now, dd sat down and rubber cemented a bunch of popsicle sticks together for an Extra gift. LOL

Shrug,  I'm off to do laundry.  LOL
