So, what did you do for Mother's Day today?

Asked by Draconess25 (4448points) May 9th, 2010

A high school friend visited me with stolen flowers, & stepped on my foot.

I bought some butter. Margarine can kiss my butt….er!

I have my Mom some money for sangria & fancy cookies. I drank half of the sangria, & ate all the cookies.

So, was anyone else as greedy as me? What did you do today?

I called my Beautiful First Wife and wished her happy Mother’s Day; I ignored my second ex-wife, who is a mother only in the technical sense, and I studied the fossil record vis-a-vis early hominims (especially A. afarensis)

I woke up at 6:45am, because my little guy was done nursing, and packed the boys up for a coffee run.Picked up flowers for my mother. Then we watched Ice Age:the dinosaur one. Then went to an Orchard, and road a train a couple times, and played at a playground for an hour or so. Then we came home, had lunch, and ice cream. Then we vegged out. I’ve been trying to calm my youngest down all day. He doesn’t like when I drink coffee, but I knew it’d be a long day.
My husband hasn’t been home all day.

@casheroo Why doesn’t he like it?

This is the first Mother’s Day that I have not had a mother-figure around. My mom died over 30 years ago and my grandmother died last June. My boyfriend knew this and saw to it that this was the best Mother’s Day I have ever had. We started with a devotional at the Bahá’í Center, then sushi for lunch, followed by coffee at my favorite place. He also gave me a travel coffee cup and a gift card. The three men who made me a mom gave me fabulous gifts they made in school: a couple of poems and some handmade stationary. They also gave me some lovely scented oil! All in all it has been a great day!

@Draconess25 Because I breastfeed, and he’s apparently very sensitive to the caffeine.

@casheroo Oh. I didn’t catch that!

I kind of alluded to this on another question, but I had a very nice Mother’s Day. I sent flowers to my mom and my grandma, and chatted with each of them on the phone. I also sent a card to my dad’s wife. They met and married when I was already an adult and out of the house, so I have a hard time thinking of her as my “stepmom,” although I do like her a lot. Also talked to her on the phone.

My husband and kids gave me cards and a huge Nerf dart gun which I later used to whip all their butts in a Nerf war. :) They made me breakfast in bed, too. My in-laws had us over for lunch, and they gave me some flowers. We got my mother-in-law a silly t-shirt, and the kids made cards for her. We also celebrated my sister-in-law’s birthday and had cake. My mother-in-law bought five super-soaker water guns last week, and the kids wanted to try them out. In spite of the day being only 50 degrees (and very windy) they got into a huge water fight with my husband and his dad. It was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, especially when my father-in-law had his water gun stolen by one of the kids and resorted to chasing everyone around with a big pitcher of water.

We then spent the rest of the afternoon just hanging around the house and relaxing. When we put the kids to bed, my 6 year old asked to stay up to read for a while. I was happy to let him, because he has never wanted to read on his own. Ten minutes later I peeked into his room and saw him sound asleep with the book still in his hands. So cute, but the little stinker woke up when I tried to take his picture.

I filled my already greatful heart with the gestures of my 3 wonderful children. Each one unique and each one possessing fabulous mothering skills, even though 2 are sons.

Woke up, fed the kid, made coffee, drove Hubby to court-ordered AA meeting (since when can the government mandate a religious service?), put gas in the car, came home, tried to take a nap, failed, made lunch, played with the kid outside, took a shower, did laundry, returned a rental movie, made dinner, now I’m on here with you.

Mother’s day is every day. At least, I’m a mother every day.

SuperMouse's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr that sounds a lot like my first seven or eight Mother’s Days as a mom! Wait until your little one starts pre-school and you get your first “school made” Mother’s Day gift, I guarantee it will warm your heart! In the meantime Happy Mother’s Day, I know your baby is very lucky to have you as a mom!

We had our family Mother’s Day dinner last week, to save money (the prices always go up on holidays) and to avoid crowds. It was great, with four generations. Today, I went shopping, cooked a very successful meal, and played with my grandkids all day.

I miss my oldest son, but he has emigrated to Sweden, where they have Mother’s the last Sunday in May, so he still has three weeks to remember.

I drove all over town like a fucking maniac delivering flowers, and then I got drunk at the Mother’s Day party at my sisters.

Wasn’t Mothers Day in March?!

partyparty's avatar

@Sophief Yes it was in March… but in the UK. Did you celebrate?

Sophief's avatar

@partyparty We took my mum out and I got her flowers and chocolates.

partyparty's avatar

@Sophief Aw that is lovely. Wish my mum was still alive.

Sophief's avatar

@partyparty I’m sorry about your mum. When I was with my ex, his mum dies and we would spend nearly all of Mothers Day at her grave. We would take a blanket and some flowers and just act like she was with us.
