I'll be 34 wks pregnant then, and I've ready told dh I want an hour long prenatal massage and a mani-pedi that day, so he's taking dd to the park. He'll probably also get me flowers and a card, and chocolate. If I'm really lucky he will do the dishes and vacuum too! But maybe I'm just getting greedy now wink1.gif

OK I've changed my mind. I just want SILENCE. One full day free from the incessant chatter of little munchkin voices.

I'm surprised all you mamas are so modest.  For years I too wished for sleep and to not have to do any house work.  I can't say that is REALLY what I want for mother's day.  That stuff should just be expected.  

 

My real REALLY dreams if money were no object and I could get one thing that would be the most greatest, most fantastic, I would probably pass out, maybe scream, jump up and down, would be a Mercedes GL63.  I can dream can't I? Cost more then my house but I'm definitely worth it.

I don't know that I'm exactly modest. I'm not interested in cars, jewelry, fashion or most of the other really expensive stuff people talk about- just not my thing. If money were absolutely no object, I'd probably want a really extensive massage at the local spa - but I'd want the gift card for it on Mother's Day, not the actual massage. I like to spend Mother's Day with the family.

That's a lovely car!

 

Hmmm.  Aside from things that should be a given... I want us to spend a few days on the beach in a really nice house.  And have a lot of experiences: kayaking, science museum, amusement part, nature walks.  Lots of good food. And anything and everything we want from all the gift shops!  lol.gif

 

And a motherhood ring, special made by some artist. Someone who can artfully put an amethyst and a pearl together.

Okay, since we are getting really honest here let's forget Ryan Gosling. What I want is a trip to some tropical island for a month, a full spa day with food included and NO INTERUPTIONS, and various jewelry items with precious stones. I suppose we can add Ryan Gosling back into the mix as well.

Okay, my DH freaking rocks. As an early mother's day gift, he sent his mom and me out to a fancy dinner last night, then to see the Eifman Ballet perform Rodin, which was astounding. love.gif

Like another poster said, I'm not into cars, jewelry (the only jewelry I wear is my wedding band/engagement ring and my mother's ring), fancy dinners, flowers, etc.  The only big thing I want right now would be a sewing room the size of a double car garage.  But that isn't what I want for Mother's Day.  I've always gotten what I wanted for Mother's Day--a day without the responsibility of children.

A clean house and some sexy lingerie

I think I would like to start the day with a morning latte with just my husband, followed by a full day of board and card games with my family.  Then maybe a movie snuggled on the couch together...

Realistically, a new pair of jeans, a new basal body thermometer, and a copy of The Radical Doula.
In my wildest dreams, a revolution that leads to a more peaceful and equitable world, and for my hair to look like I curled it naturally. :-)

I'd love the home to be professionally cleaned, to be taken to dinner, and to get hommade cards.

In the real world, i would like a massage and to go out to eat.

In my fantasy world, i would go on a boat ride with my family and visit Catalina Island, i would receive a sapphire necklace, i would go to the most amazing spa in the area and spend a few hours getting pampered and then i would spend the evening with Peter Facinelli (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004906/). Nah, actually, i prefer my DH but dalia made me think about which celebrity i find the most attractive lol.

I got some flowers, a shopping spree and a wonderful day with my family.

Even though I didn't get Ryan Gosling I'm pretty happy right now. :-)
