Mums and Dads of Twitter get real about the expectations of Mother’s Day this year. Read them for a good laugh.

I told my family I just wanted peace & quiet for Mother's Day & then they all laughed & laughed & continued arguing. — Sarcastic Mommy (@sarcasticmommy4) May 5, 2016

  • lol so true, everyday is mothers day though


  • bahahaha agree with all comments


  • Ba ha ha, I can’t wait for Mother’s Day when Bub is old enough, I bet I will be one of the mums writing a similar comment on social media, he, he.


  • our school does a mothers day stall and we just give miss 8 $10 and she picks out a whole bunch of little things. then we do the same for fathers day, its a great idea from the school.


  • Haha this is all too real


  • lol these are so true.


  • Happy Mother’s Day to all MoMs. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Sadly both my mother and mother-in-law have passed away, so my day will be spent quietly at home with my husband and daughter – just the way I like it.


  • im unsure if I sound selfish, don’t you sometime feel that u just want to be with ur own family on mothers day rather than having get up in the morning to chase 2 more mums on mother day and making sure they both get equal quality time, by the time you get home, your tired to be bothered doing anything else?

    I like when my kids make me stuff from school and just want to jump into bed with you, get lots of cuddles and snuggles. there will be some farts of course but many laughers too.


  • If the truth be known most Mothers of older children just want quality time with them and their families if there are any.
    Time is more important than presents. Mothers Day, like a lot of others is too commercialised.


  • Like there’s, I’ve organised my wn (trinket) presents, and don’t expect much else – except for the all important loving cuddles!


  • I don’t wish much this year. I have to go for a colonoscopy on Tuesday so I am on a special diet, in particular from Mother’s Day. Not much fun if I am so limited in what I can eat. Oh yes, I wish we celebrate it another day, when I can enjoy it too! :-)

    • I hope your colonoscopy goes well xx

      • Thank you. I hope it too. It’s a very simple procedure, but I don’t like the total anesthesia at all! :D


  • Considering you’re only celebrating Mother’s Day because you are a mum, it makes sense you would want to spend the day with your children. That’s my wish every year, doesn’t come true, but I can keep wishing. I have a grandchild to include now too
