With Mothers day fast approaching it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t write something about it. Do you mama’s out there REALLY enjoy mother’s day??
HERE IS WHAT I HATE………………..
Mother’s day always seems to be fake to me – like every other holiday it has become a materialistic gold mine. Everywhere you turn there are ads for the great and perfect gift for mom – puleeeeze.
It is now “Politically correct” to make a gift for mom in school.
It is all a set up – moms get really excited thinking each year is going to be the best one yet! Then it starts; the sibling bickering, the constant ringing of the phone because everyone you know decides to call you and wish you a “happy mother’s day…..” seriously it’s mother’s day – I really don’t want to be yapping on the phone because you called to say “Happy mother’s day!”
The gift from the hubby – yes you know, the bloody appliance that HE really wanted! Shit, why not just give me a Home Depot gift card that you can re-gift to yourself.
Mothers day should be the one day we mama’s can sleep in. Doesn’t happened – you tend to feel guilty about sleeping in or you CAN’T sleep. The babies wake you up because they have no idea what Mothers day is – everyday is the same to them. And finally it is impossible to sleep in because all you can hear is the kiddies “cooking you breakfast” this then scares you shitless about what they are “cooking” along with the mess you know is happening in your kitchen.
ON THE FLIP SIDE………………….
It is nice to pretend you are sleeping in because “faking it” never felt so good………….
Mothers day sex with the hubby is usually worth it (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)
It is hilarious to have your children come home with the “politically correct” card and gift they made at school, as they try to hide it from you saying “Don’t look! It’s your Mother’s Day present!”
I definitely enjoy the few hours I get with the children not fighting, arguing or destroying the house. Please note the important words: FEW HOURS.
Not having to cook dinner is nice…………. okay wait, I can’t count this one because I never cook……
The smiles on my children’s faces as they hand me the “Politically correct” mothers day card and gift.

Ultimately the best Mothers Day gift is the gift I receive each and every day – my eight children – even if they are a bunch of crazy monkeys.
What about you? Do you love mother’s day or hate it? What is the best gift you have ever been given? The worse?
Until Next Time,
