on mothers day i got told (for the millionth time) "i hate you". and "were better off without you" and that the kids act up because i didn't teach them anything
yesterday my 3 yr old ripped every last one of my surprise gladiolas (that i paid for and planted last year gave up on and they decided to grow this year and were looking good) the dog ran thru the flower patch that dh planted and my "perennial" mums from dh last year turned out to be annuals and didn't come back up. so even last years mothers day gifts are gone.
i have tried to get over this, but i just can't. i cry when i think about it or hear about the things that kids did for their mothers. dh does not get why i am so upset over a "hallmark holiday" and stated that sleeping in, waking to fresh made pancakes and not cooking dinner should be good enough... but one day out of every weekend is like that so how does that make mothers day 'special' for me it was just like every other weekend
is it normal to be upset about it? or am i just throwing myself a pity party?
(also i have not told dh how upset i really am about this, he thinks i am ok with it and i am leaving it that way so as to not start a fight about it)
mil and 2 of dh's aunts all sent me cards and mils had a monetary gift in it, mil also had the kids make me cards on monday after ds tiold her that they didn't do anything for mothers day so at least one person tried to make me feel special
