Does your husband make an effort to make mother's day special?
Answered 1 year ago
Year after year I read about dissapointed mums who's deadbeat husbos didn't make any effort to make them feel special or even try to meet their (low) expectations and make their mother's day just a nice day, not even a simple gesture.
It's so sad, when your children are small your husband should suck it up and show some appreciation and love, to not only be kind but to set an example for his kids. It makes me so angry!
If your husband doesn't bother, I'm so sorry 🌹 Happy Mother's Day x
Have an answer?
We were supposed to go to my parents for a Mother’s Day bbq. I got the kids and myself dressed and ready to go and just when we were about to leave he decided that he wasn’t coming because I was in a mood and he didn’t want me to be a bitch to him all day. So I took the kids and left. I cried the whole way there, had to drive around for an extra 10 minutes waiting for the puffy post crying redness to go down. I told my parents he felt sick and that’s why he wasn’t there.
I went to my parents and had a lovely lunch. I stayed until dinner time, got home to him in bed watching a movie and the house still a mess. I showered the kids and myself and got them ready for bed by myself. Made school lunch, cleaned the house and folded 3 loads of washing while he watched his movie. When I finally came to bed around 10, he muttered something about I need to stop being a bit ha Nd he’s not a big gift person so I shouldn’t have expected anything.
We’ve spoken probably 10 words to each other since then. Stuck at home together today as the kids went back to school and daycare.
He did cook dinner tho... but I'm still cleaning up the mess today
Got 2 cute homemade cards and an attempt of paper flowers. Best day :)
My ex. couldn’t even be bothered making porridge for me when we were together.
Now we have our own child as well in the mix he does try. But honestly he is useless. I can't be nice about it. I buy my own pressie or need to specifically tell him what to get and go with him he shops last min in a panic saying he's just had NO time. Which makes me feel guilty. It's obvious it's a chore to him. Yesterday he said come on we better go to shops for your mother's day an hour before they closed and I just couldn't I was exhausted. He actually went on his own! Forgot a card, forgot to scan flybuys and got me the jumper I asked for but rang me 6 times about it, what shop again? Where in the shop? Can you send me a pic? Then forgot to get security tag off it. He said he would get the 2 books my mum wanted and came home with 1. But it's an improvement!
