Once again, my Mother’s Day was a let down. I woke to a nice breakfast from hubs but sadly, that is the extent of his trying today. We did go to church but it was very obvious that he did not want to be there. He tried I guess though… points for that. My teenage daughter decided against going to church with me. She also decided against going to dinner at my mom and dad’s house. Oh, and she decided to not speak a single word to me all day. Not one word was spoken by her to me for the entire Mother’s Day. That is some respect I get, right?
Hubs failed to bother to get a card for me again, despite my being upset about that for the past several years. He never does anything for Mother’s Day. I wish I could say that I won’t get my hopes up but it happens every year. I think to myself that he wouldn’t fail to do something (heck, make a dang card!) when I am not only mom to our two children, but his as well. It is something that he should show appreciation for. Yet, every year is the same thing.
I have my two wonderful babies and Mackenzie who cared about me today. I got couple great cards (one will be featured here soon!), a “coffee cup” they decorated for me, and a cool flower Kenzie made with some kind of clay. At least they appreciate me and what this day is about.
I did have a good time at my parents’ house and some good food. Thank goodness too… or the entire day could be considered a wash. Personally, I think Mother’s Day should just be banished. I, for one, wouldn’t miss it at all.
No, there is no need to call the whaambulance. I am done feeling sorry for myself.
