Well, first off, I had a very nice Mother’s Day. Last year was a really bad one — for me and my family. Hubby was still quite…..ill… for lack of a better word. I didn’t get a card, a gift, nothing from the kids….no special treatment. So this year, just the fact that he was “aware” that it was Mother’s Day was a huge plus.
And yes, I got cards from him and my kids. And they also went out shopping and picked up an ipod for me. I am so excited- Now I don’t have to keep borrowing his when I am working. And this has *my* music and podcasts on it. But needless to say he didn’t really need to spend that much $$. However, I have learned to not complain. Better to have a nice day and an extra credit card bill than not have the day recognized at all.
So now that I sound like a greedy b****- I have to say one of the best parts of the day was getting to spend it with my new extended family. My brother’s fiancee’s family had us up for a local brunch, then we went back to their house for cake and coffee. The families are blending so nicely and I am so thrilled that my brother found a great person to spend his life with.
So my kids were happy, hubby was good about spending the day with the new family and my hubby recognized how much I need him to let me know he cares. That was what made it a happy mother’s day.
