Got an Answer?
I didn't, but I'm not really into mothers day, so it doesn't bother me. Had a nice lunch with both sets of our parents, so that was nice.
Why do Mum’s want something from their husbands/ partners? You are not his Mum... I’m not trolling or wanting to start a fight or anything, just asking.
I got gifts but most of them were things I do not want and would never use. I even gave my family a list of a few things I’d like. After opening them this morning and questioning the logic behind what I got, I was told I’m too hard to shop for by hubby and he admitted just grabbing some things last minute. How is asking for books and a shirt too hard? So what I really got today was the realisation that my husband doesn’t know me at all and I would rather have been given nothing over last minute junk.
I got nothing, not even a card. But I spent my morning running around getting last minute gifts for MIL and SIL.. So everyone had a great day. I had a crappy day stuck with in-laws , making sure everyonw else felt special.
I got “ you don’t have to do anything today. Sit down and relax all day”. So I did, but so did everyone else. Today I’m doing all the shit that didn’t get done yesterday. My husband is a nice guy but he never does anything for mother’s day. Not even for his own mum who is an awesome person who does so much for us. I forced him to write in his own mums card this year. He battled me but I refused to do it. He wrote “ happy Mother’s day”, no lovely words for his lovely mum.
My kids made me cards which I live of course but my husband every year stands by 'your not my mum, so I don't have to do anything'. Pisses me off!
I'm feeling a little sad because my husband did nothing for me although I made sure he got a card for his mum. My kids bought me lovely gifts from the school stall and handmade crafts from daycare and my in laws. The day itself was lovely with my kids, mil and my extended family. Just sad my husband didn't really acknowledge me. Petty I know.
I got nothing. Same most years. You get better at lying to your family about it - this year I told my mum that I couldn't find what I wanted so am waiting for new stock....actually, my husband had no money so I got nothing again.
No effort made by anyone at all. Just another day for me, usual house chores
Me. Two of my kids have passed and two live too far away, I do have some family near where I live but they have isolated me. So, my Mother's Day was spent alone working on a Uni project and now I'm cooking a single piece of chicken for my dinner.
I didn't get any gifts but that's OK with me, I've spent enough on myself lately (new clothes, hair done, night out with the girls) My daughter and I done a mother's day fun run/walk this morning as fundraiser for the heart foundation. We went to the pub for lunch with my sister and her hubby/ kids then visited my mum and mil.
Do the same for father’s day
I got a card. Otherwise it was a normal sunday. Usually husband makes an effort but for some reason not this year.
