I got flowers both times... from my mom. But not DH. With DD, one of my mom's friends sent roses and her office sent flowers. But no one else has ever given me anything. When DS was born, my mom brought the flowers to the house instead of the hospital.
DH knows better than to go into a chocolate shop and NOT bring me something. :LOL He's usually pretty good about bringing me a treat when he gots to Starbucks to get coffee beans (his addiction
). Though he can't get it through his head that I don't like danishes (donuts YES especially cake donuts, danishes NO!), not a huge carrot cake fan and don't like cherry.
I've never gotten anything from him on Mother's Day either. This year I did get a Mother's Bracelet... because I ordered and bought it myself!! After dropping blatant hints for several months.
He couldn't REMEMBER to give it to me on the day.
It just sat in his desk ddrawer and then I had to ask for it FOUR days later because I refused to beg for it on Mother's Day.
He's one of those with good intentions but bad follow through. :eyeroll Can't tell you how many times I've found a small bag with a card inside it a couple of weeks AFTER an event.
I don't expect to be getting anything this time either. Not even sure I'll be getting flowers. She's going to be out of town most of this next week... so she might miss the birth all together.
DH use to get me flowers, but apparently since my mom always gets me flowers (my birthday and with the births) he doesn't bother anymore, feels like he gets upstaged by MIL.
