First off, I haven't spoken to my mother since 1990. That isn't a bad thing, but it makes Mother's Day a little sad.<br><br>
Second, my son are the only family I have. His father isn't involved, I don't have any relatives, and all of my friends are busy with their moms today.<br><br>
Third, my best friend, and who is also a single mama is out with a friend of hers that she has known for many more years than she has known me. They were given babysitting and lunch out at a really nice restaurant. I am super jealous, and I feel like crap for not just being happy for her.<br><br>
I thought we had plans to go get ice cream with our sons today, but I just gave her a call and she was laughing and having a great time still at the restaurant gushing about how she is so thrilled to not have had a call to come pick up her son yet. She simply said, "Oh, have fun going with G (my DS)!"<br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/crap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crap">

I'm a single Mum too and I've had lots of people shocked that I didn't want the kids Dad to bring them home for Mothers Day (they spend every weekend with him).<br><br>
I know it sounds bad, but I look after them alone the majority of the week. I really didn't want to spend my Mothers Day running around after them, picking up after them etc because I do that aaaaalll week. They're only little so it's not like they could make the day special for me (no breakfast in bed, day off etc)<br><br>
I forget the point of this post but I think it was something along the lines of: I'm a single Mum and I get what you're saying. When it's just you, Mothers Day just ends up being like any other day and that's kind of sad.

My mother and I are not speaking right now (not by my choice - she is an alcoholic, is embarrassed by some recent behavior, and will not talk with anyone), so I get that piece of it. FB is full of people messaging their moms, gushing about how great they are, etc. Bah humbug.
