Do you get gifts for your lo's daycare teacher for mothers day?

I don't know if this is a weird idea or not, but my ds is 2 & he has a bond with his teacher that is remarkable. I'm a little jealous lol. But anyway she is great & she does all the things that as a mom I wish I could do with him. He respects & admires her in just the same way he does with me. Would giving her a token of appreciation for being so amazing & basically acting as his 2nd mom 5 says a week be weird?

I don't do anything for mother's day, but I do for teacher appreciation day.

I think its sweet. I have one little boy who at my daycare who usually insists that dad buy me a flower when they get them for mom. Its cute, but definitely not necessary or expected.

Oh shoot, I didn't know there was a teachers appreciation day & I googled it. Apparently it was today?

I usually do something for teacher appreciation week and the end of the year.

Not for mother's day, but (and I know this is controversial) I write a very kind note to our daycare providers every holiday, saying thank you for helping raise my children, as I know they do not replace me, but play a huge role in assisting to teach and mentor my kids.

I really like that idea. I don't get how it's controversial. No matter how much we as working moms regret having to work sometimes, the fact is (at least for my family) my ds's daycare teacher basically is his 2nd mommy. She does all the things I would do with him if I didn't work & is amazing with my ds.

Some moms get really upset, with the idea and accusations someone else is "raising my child", kwim?

Yeah I guess.. I think I've just accepted that though. I don't in any way think she fully replaces me, but I see that she does practically raise him. Dh & I work ft with frequent overtime so unfortunately I think my sons teacher spends more time with my son than I do...

We don't, but I don't see it being a bad idea
