What would you love to have/do for Mothers Day? - Page 2

post #21 of 60

I wish I wasn't required to go to my DP's family reunion filled with people I've never met three hours both ways at 35w pregnant. I'm not going to even be able to see my own mom! Nevermind the pleasure of sleeping on the floor/couch/tiny full-sized bed when I can barely manage to sleep in my own big, comfy bed. Or the near constant contractions long car rides bring. Or chasing after kids in a strange environment. 

 

I'd like to stay home, nap, have someone else to do the labour of keeping my family afloat FOR ONE DAY and get a massage.

I want a morning where I can wake up on my own terms and then get out of bed and do whatever *I* want. Then I want to have a breakfast with my family that I didn't have any role in preparing. My MIL will be here, so that may actually happen--dd will be so interested in her I can pretty much do my own thing without her needing anything from me.

 

We'll also go out to dinner at my favorite seaside fish shack, which I'm delighted about. Five Mother's Days ago I was in labor with dd and we were going to go there, but I was in no state to be eating fried fish in a public place!

I would like the front porch swing that is sitting on the floor on the front porch to be hanging and swingable after sitting there for almost a year.  I'd also love to have my armoire, that is out in the garage since we moved, brought in so I could finish my bedroom before this baby comes.

I'd like to go to Contraband Days in Lake Charles, but I'm not sure we will make it there this year.

Well I know I'm already getting a massage and pedicure the day before. WOOHOO!

 

Since it's my first Mother's Day I would like a necklace that has DD's birthstone, and my and DW's stones on either side. DW isn't the best at gifts and likes to be told what to get so I sent her some links and pics. I hope she gets it. We have two mothers in our house, so double the fun next week! I got her 3 gifts that she'll love, but are more practical and less sentimental. We're also going to take turns cooking that day (we have some great meals planned) and I'm going to let her sleep in and go to bed early. orngbiggrin.gif

I'm not expecting or hoping for anything other than maybe homemade cards from the kids.  I would love it if DP and the kids would encourage me to go off and do something on my own, and assure me that they wouldn't sit around watching videos and playing computer games while I was gone.  Or maybe we could all go to the bike path and I could head off on my roller blades while DP went more slowly with the kids.  I could probably make one of these things happen if I pushed for it, but I wish it didn't always require a push from me.  I wish there were someone else who actually wanted me to have a good time now and then.

Sounds like it's a possibility if you don't worry about what they do while you're gone...?

I agree w Rightkindofme. But more realistically, a picnic in the park is a nice second. So long as i dont have to pack it. DH has already suggested taking DS to the park to see the trains. Dont think he realizes it's MD.

Well, there's pretty much no possibility they will actually suggest that I go off and do my own thing.  That has never happened yet.  Sure, I could do it anyway if I really wanted to, and I could just let them do whatever they wanted to while I was gone.  But the fact that DP never spends even a couple of hours with the kids without putting on videos or computer games for them (because being with them is too stressful for him unless they're motionless in front of a screen) is a huge problem for me.  It sort of spoils my time away to know that it means putting my kids in an unhealthy situation.

I just want my garden to get tilled, but it's supposed to rain so there goes that wish.  How about a day of no pregnancy induced, stifling, limping-around-the-house, pelvic pain?   That's not in the cards either.  So I guess it's just a day of homemade cards (of which my ODD will make me 5 or 6) and cooking for everyone.  Oh well.  It could be worse!

it hadn't occurred to me that someone might do something for me for mother's day.  um.  i think that someone will have to be ME!  what shall i give myself . . . my mother will be in town for breakfast/brunch.  it's going to rain.  i will be single-parenting.  hmm.  i know!  i'm going to spend the afternoon framing and hanging photos of my kids, my mom, and grannies.  that would be a very good mother's day project and it will make me happy.  i have some frames, but need to thrift some more and spray paint all the ones that are not black yet.

 

i ordered my mom photo stamps of my kids.  that's what i did last year and she likes using them (occasionally to mail me something, which my kids love).  i ordered a second sheet of them too  . . . debating whether to give those to (ex?) mil for mother's day or save for my dad for father's day as originally planned.  hmm.  wwyd?

I want exactly what I'll get. DH will get up with the kids, and let me sleep in. Then, he'll make me breakfast and coffee, with help from the kids. (I may get breakfast in bed, which I'm not crazy about, but don't actually dislike, and the kids love doing it.) The kids will either make me something (doubtful this year, as time is running out - ds1 was going to help them come up with a craft, but his schedule has been insane) or pick something for me at the store. They love doing that. At Christmas, I got a bag of Lindt truffles and some insoles. DH will also make lunch and dinner, and I'll only do dishes and such if I happen to want to, for some reason.


We may go out, but not to eat. I don't do restaurants on Mother's Day or Valentine's Day. I hate crowds.

post #33 of 60

What i want is to be in my own home, where I can wake up at the time I want to. Where my kids would bring me cards and flowers, but I will be at MIL's house  where dh is the focus no matter what day it is :(

It won't be all bad though, we are going to brunch so I won't have to cook or anything.

As for a present, I showed dh a few necklaces I wanted and a few other things in this weekends ad section, so hopefully he took the hint :)

post #34 of 60

Boy oh boy, I would love to go to brunch with my family this Sunday. (Hint, hint, DH!) eat.gif

post #35 of 60

I would LOVE to sleep in.  But that won't happen.  Yeah... just sleep... sleep would be pretty freakin awesome.  lol 

post #36 of 60

What I would like: sleeping in, breakfast in bed, dh to cook dinner and a nap.

 

What I will actually get: maybe the sleeping in and breakfast in bed.  Dh's working and is studying for finals so that's probably about it.  I'll be cooking lunch for my mom and grandma and dinner for mil.

post #37 of 60

My dh is on a business trip, so ..... yeah, nothing.  ;)  My kids are 5 & 4, so they won't realize it's M-day, and we don't have family here in town.  I expect to wrangle two kids through church and do some laundry.  I will probably sneak some hershey's kisses out of the bag while my kids don't see me, though!!

 

post #38 of 60

hmm first SLEEP...that won't happen though, so second...A really nice set of butchering/slaughtering knives to use on my chickens...Weird I know but we don't do a lot of gifts or splurges here so when I need something I usually wait until a gift giving "holiday"...

 

That and a nice day with DH and DD and then a few hours without DD so it is just DH and Imischievous.gif

post #39 of 60

I would like to hang out with my family and have a good time which is what we're going to do.  My cousin (who is like a sis to me) is having a family bbq on Mother's Day.

Did someone call my DH and tell him what I said? He's taking the day off school, we're gonna hit the Italian deli for our picnic stuff and spend the day at the park! Woo-Hoo! And I didnt have to arrange it!
