I'm not a mommy yet so I don't know if I should expect anything for mother's day but in my dreams DH would give me a card (store bought is fine) that acknowledges that I am about to become the mother of his child and that he is excited/happy about that/appreciates that.
What do you REALLY want for Mother's Day?? - Page 2
Oooh, I like that. It would be HEAVENLY if dh would have the kids do this. Maybe I'll suggest it.
I usually keep it cheap or free for Mother's Day and just ask them to make dinner. But I would like to go out for one of those Mother's Day brunches at a nice restaurant, just once. I have a hunch it would be nutty-crowded, but I wouldn't mind. It'd be fun! I'm probably the only one who'd think it's fun.
you know looking back i will say this.
its just dd and me
we in general do spend a lot of time together - meaning quality time
so really i dont need to do or get anything on mother's day. i have no expectations.
however dd is the one who loves to give. she gets all excited about mother's day. i enjoy her enthusiasm.
i think mother's day will mean more to me when dd moves out and if she lives far away.
because i am coparenting - i feel i get the best of both worlds. some adult time and then time with dd. so i dont really feel the need for 'mother's day'.
The guarantee that this babe I'm carrying will be OUT before then! I'm more pregnant now than any woman in my family has been since my great-aunt was born 70 years ago, and my patience is wearing thin!
I'd love a day to myself to work, but since I'll have a newborn and two active toddlers, I don't think there's any chance of that happening.
Oh, I know! I'd like to have my home professionally cleaned while we are all out at the park, so we come home to a totally sparkling clean house without me lifting a finger.
(And, just in case anyone is wondering, DW already decided that she wants to have her own day on the traditional Father's Day, and I support her doing whatever feels right to her. She's not like, masculine or anything, she just wants her own day and it makes sense to do it then since nugget doesn't have a father.)
I would love for a relaxing day, a bath by myself (currently my 2 1/2 year old always bathes with me), and maybe a massage. We are expecting another baby in less than 3 weeks so I'm getting tired! Oh and if my husband felt like doing yardwork that would be amazing. :) I love the Ryan Gosling answer!

I said one night with Ryan Gosling but I can't be held responsible if he comes back for more LOL!!!
I'm so dreading the day this happens with my beautiful DD. I remember seeing it happen with my younger cousins, and totally having that old-lady thought of, "Oh man, she's covering up that gorgeous face of hers with all that gunk!" even though I was only in my 20s.
Let's see, for Mother's Day I want exactly what I'll probably get: breakfast in bed, handmade cards, lots of hugs and kisses, and the freedom to do whatever the heck I want all day. My birthday was just a few weeks ago, so I explicitly ask for no purchased gifts for Mother's Day -- I just like for them to make a bit of a fuss over me, which they're very good at doing.
My birthday was yesterday, and I got all the stops pulled out already. My husband bought me chocolate, flowers and a cute little owl doll (it's an inside joke, LOL). He let me sleep in late last Saturday, and took me out for TWO birthday dinners. My kids made me breakfast in bed and gave me homemade cards and fresh-picked berries. And next weekend my husband is taking our whole family to my favorite restaurant for lunch. (It's across town, so we were waiting for a day we'll already be over there.) That's enough to cover my birthday and Mother's Day for the next couple of years, LOL!
Yeah, the same with my niece. Gorgeous young woman who over-tans and uses too much makeup. The black hair dye and the brown tan was just -no. My sisters and I kind of mourned this turn in her appearance, but I'm sure she thinks her old aunts are positively dowdy. It's all good, her generosity and kindness can't be covered with makeup.
I should say that, while I think it's over much, my daughter does a fine job with her makeup.
Michelleepotter, that sounds just lovely! Here's to the ultrasound revealing a strong heartbeat.
Edited because my niece is a woman, not a girl.
