Happy Mother's Day to All You Moms Out There!
This Cartoon hit home for me. Both of my sons opted NOT to give me a card, a hug, a kiss or acknowledge the day.
Typical man behavior, no?
I would have even settled for what the mom in the cartoon got.....8-(
DH-who knows better than to do this-had a bouquet of flowers(lavender ones, of course!lol) & a card(funny on the outside, appropriately mushy on the inside) waiting for me when I came downstairs Sunday morning. He also made dinner....from scratch! ;-)
Daughter surprised me this year. She got her butt up early Sunday morning and went out in search of just the right Mother's Day card and bought me a plant too.....all with her OWN MONEY! If you knew Daughter, you would KNOW what a sacrifice this was for her.lol I also got a "Happy Mother's Day" and a big hug from her.
I just keep wondering if she wasn't in the doghouse for having a car accident in the high school parking lot on Thursday if she would have been as attentive to me Sunday. 8-P
Here's picture of the cards I received. The larger one on the left in the photo with the purple flowers is the one Daughter gave me.....
The insides joke here is that when she and her older brother were 3 & 4 years old, my DH took them to the drug store to pick out cards to give me for Mother's Day. Not being able to read, Daughter picked out her card because of the pretty flowers on the front. That card said, "You've been like a mom to me...." also. So now she makes an effort to find a Mom Day card with that same sentiment....evidently because I am just like a MOM.
