This is my first Mother's Day as a mother. It is also Ethan's 3 month birthday. So I have decided to make a big deal out of it. Everyone else gets to celebrate being a mother, so I am going to celebrate too, dammit. So we are going out to a traditional Mother's Day brunch. We'll probably be the only family there without a child, but there's not much I can do about that. DH thinks I'm a little crazy, and that maybe it would be better to go low-key, but I'm not having it. Like every one here, I made a huge sacrifice for my child and I am still a mom, so I am going to celebrate!
Good for you! you deserve it. Tell DH you want a ring with his birthstone on it!!! Go you!
My mom has passed away, and my heart's been stomped on this year. I think we are going to go up to the cemetery and rearrange her flowers. The kids have alluded to some surprise, but unlless it's my sons reincarnated, then I'm sticking to my plans
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!
I agree Rebecca. I have secretly been craving Mother's Day cards this year. I think my family and husband are the kind who understand and will actually wish me a happy Mother's Day. Like you, this is my first. If I don't get any sort of recognition besides from Bill I think I'm going to feel disappointed.
It's defnitely going to be a bittersweet day. I really hope Roald's gravestone is installed by then.
Well good!! And yeah, my DH thinks it's a little weird when I insist on things like that, but what can you do. They don't react quite the same as us women do. We are mothers, and we need recognition for that. *hugs*
I think that's great you're going all out! I am not looking forward to that day at all. Maybe I'll just mope at home. But in the end, it's really just another day in this whole devastating time, so I don't know why it'll bother me so much more.

Jonny's getting me a ring with Katrina's birthstone on it (and it's also my birthstone). We've been looking for a while, but we're very particular about what we want, so it'll definitely have to be custom made. So having it by Mother's Day isn't very likely.
