Happy Mother’s Day
I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. But especially to all the single mothers out there. It’s not really the same when you don’t have anyone to pick up the slack on that day. It’s the one day of the year that even the most under appreciated mothers out there normally get some help from their spouses.
But when you are a single mother of young children, mine are 5 and 7, there is no sleeping in, no someone else will make breakfast and lunch and dinner, no one to buy you flowers or a present (my daughters made my ex go buy something yesterday… to tell the truth the thought of him buying presents for me makes me sick but I’ll fake it Sunday and put on a happy smile).
I have told them that a card and them behaving nicely all weekend is all I want. So they have spent the last two days wrapping anything in sight and hiding in my oldest bedroom 🙂 Very cute! It’ll be interesting to see how many “presents” I’ll get on Sunday, but I’m looking forward to that so much more than whatever they went to the store with my ex to buy.
