Super personal question, and I don’t mean to upset anyone currently grieving the loss of their mother figure, but for those who celebrate the day, I would love to know what you did on Mother’s Day?
This is my husband’s FIRST Mother’s Day that he isn’t working- in over TEN YEARS! He is SO EXCITED!
He has planned an incredible adventure for his mother and it really does sound like an extremely fun day out.
To be brutally honest, I am beyond jealous. This villainous, selfish side of me desperately wishes that it was me that he had planned an outing for- even though I am not his mother.
I just felt like maybe after eight little ones together and us never having done anything significant for this day, that maybe this would be it… yeah I know how jelly and ridiculous I sound when you consider that I’m just the wife.
It just kinda sucks though… here I am pacing the floor with a teething baby and he’s gone to bed early because he has to be rested for the big drive they’ve got ahead.
I wish he thought I was worthy of fuss. But maybe “fuss” is only made where it’s demanded.
I mean whilst he’s out I will be getting ready to have my mum come over for dinner- on a side note, mum’s cooking on Mother’s Day should definitely be illegal!
So I was just curious what the awesome Mouths of Mums community does on this day and whether your spouses make the day special for you and their mother’s, or just the latter on Mother’s Day?
I know it’s not a big deal, and I really do feel blessed to be even be a mother. But there’s a big part of me that knows I wouldn’t want any of my kid’s doing something extraordinary for me whilst their partner is left holding the baby- literally.
P.s. I crashed before submitting this question and woke up to my hubby telling me that he’s let me sleep in a bit- but now the kids need their pancakes… one can only laugh at times like these…
