This past Mother's Day was my first since my son was born. I was really looking forward to having my special day and being made to feel appreciated and honored. And I was greatly disappointed. My husband didn't get me anything. We went to Target the night before and I bought my mom a greeting card and her present (although she didn't know I shopped last minute). While I was standing right there, my husband picked out a greeting card for me. He got me no gift and picked out my card right in front of me. The next morning (on Mother's Day) our 6 month old woke up at 6am and instead of my husband getting up to take care of him and let me sleep in, he rolled over and said, "Honey, the baby's awake."
Now, I wasn't expecting a big, expensive present. We're new parents and we don't have a ton of money. But I just wanted to feel special. A surprise breakfast with some fancy mimosas for example. Instead, he planned for us to have lunch at his mom's house (long story, but she doesn't like me), so that was fun. And, I had to go grocery shopping for my own Mother's Day dinner that I planned. In his defense, he cooked the dinner, but only after I got all the ingredients and asked him to.
Am I way out of line here? My feelings were hurt. It just felt like such an afterthought to him and like he didn't even care. I, on the other hand, have been planning his Father's Day present for two months already because I wanted his 1st Father's Day to be memorable. Please comment and give me some perspective. Thanks.
