Mothers Day not as good

Did anyone else not have as good of a mothers day as they had hoped??

I was stressed out, frustrated and I went to bed feeling so disappointed. I felt it being my first mothers day, it would be something special. I felt very under appreciated. Ugh.. Well at least today is another day.

    Matt had to go to work in the morning, but came home really sick to his stomach. My original lunch date with my mom did not happen because of her health. I think Matt's daughter had made me a card (which Matt had to tell her to do) and he accidentally threw it away. And Matt's mom was at my house moving his Grandma in, which was stressful. I ended up making dinner for everyone else, and just sat to the side while I was told how to care for his Grandma.

    The only nice thing, was one of my best friends stopped by and dropped off a bouquet of flowers for me.

      That is how my Mother's days usually go. I normally spend the day yelling and screaming and fighting. This year was different. Sorry it didn't turn out like you had hoped.

        I'm sorry you guys didn't have the Mother's Day you had hoped for. One thing I have learned for sure. Yes, men SHOULD think about things. They SHOULD be prepared. But they aren't. And we all know they aren't. But we all have that one friend with the husband who just gets it and takes the reigns. My bf is not one of these guys.

        You can't give him hints, big or small. Leaving jewelry ads on the table does nothing but make him think I'm setting kindling out for the fireplace, lol. After finding out the hard way that he does not celebrate anniversaries or Valentines Day, I knew that I had to give up the fairy tale. So Friday night I told him. "I want to go to lunch for Mother's Day". "Okay". Was my response, and that's what we did. Was it romantic? Maybe a little. Was it adorable that he remembered? lol of course not. But it was time I got to spend with him. He treats me so great as the mother of his child every day. Sure, we all would love to get something extra special. That's normal! But.. ladies.. we're dealing with men here :)

          I was stressed out and frustrated all weekend as well. The kids were whiny and needy all weekend. My husband had to work so I was on my own with them.

            It wasn't anything like i had hoped but it didn't help that him and i had a fight the day before. So i kind of guessed it wasn't going to go the way i had hoped, actually my friend bought me flowers for mothers day, but i had to work and then when i got home all i got from SO was happy mothers day. I still had to clean the house and do this and that, like it was a normal day. But i suppose that just comes with the territory of being a mom.
