Do you keep MOTHERS DAY as a Mommy thing or do you recognize your wife (and her roll as MOM) with a recognition that she is STILL your "girlfriend and lover" ?

In other words, is it the "breakfast in bed, card, flowers, dinner out" standard thing, or does YOUR celebration involve also sexy lingerie gifts, adult toys and romance once the little ones are "snug in their beds"???

I don't have any kids but I would rather just keep it to our moms because I'd go broke otherwise.

Usually it's a day she wants to enjoy with the kids or with our mothers. The rest of the year is for celebrating who she is and what she does to me.

It's a mother's holiday, and I'm a mother. I'm the mother of his child, and the mother of mine. So, we celebrate it with all of us.

I celebrated my sister becoming a mother the first year by making paint hand and feet prints of her baby. She was relieved to finally figure out what the blue stuff (paint) was under his toe nails haha And she cried.

My daughter lives in New Mexico with her husband now--I am in Montana. We talk on the phone and I do send her a very small gift...if it wasn't for her I would not be a Mom. My husband buys me a plant for our yard and makes me a nice dinner.

I hate to be negative, but I HATE Mother's Day. We always have to have it at our house, my mother seems to think she "deserves it" (despite my having 3 times as many children as she did and my NEVER having a relaxing mothers day in all the years I've been a mother.) I end up cooking (yes, My Man cooks the "meat" and them I'm stuck with the fucking side dishes, the dessert (which thinks "isn't important. I don't care." He's not a MOTHER, is he?)

I clean my damn house top to bottom and then my MIL sits sulking on the deck because I don't allow smoking in my house. I hope it fucking rains on Mother's Day. My mother just called me to NAG and ask if I had asked a friend to come (whose teen aged son got married two days ago, and who has been so busy she can't even think) did I? Did I ask her to come? Did I do it yet? How many people will be there? I need to know? She's making a fucking salad, a fucking salad. I'm cooking for EVERYBODY as usual, and she "needs to know how many people" on fucking TUESDAY, so she can go on and on about how she made a fucking SALAD! G*d HELP ME! What difference does it make, "how many people?" She always makes too little anyway. Always the "Frugal One" (fucking cheap is more like it.) Of course, it's always HER idea to invite MORE PEOPLE TO MY HOUSE. Of course it is.

I have more kids than my MIL and my mother put together. I'd like to have a Mother's Day. One where I don't have to fucking cook and clean, where I don't have to get up EARLY, because "people are coming" where I don't have to have people NAG me about shit that was their idea and then nag me some more. I've been doing this since I had a 8 month old baby, then more babies. How did I end up with this shit? I'm a MOM TOO!

I HATE Mother's Day. Hate it.

A few years ago, we took everybody to a restaurant, and it was almost nice and I was much less stressed. Then I got, "It was really expensive." from my husband. "I'll take care of everything when we have it at home." NO HE DOESN'T. He makes MEAT! He doesn't think about side dishes, decorations, silverware, DESSERTS (because he doesn't eat them.) And what to we do on Father's Day? He sits and watches sports and wants to be "left alone in peace." How nice for him.

I HATE IT!!!! I may have to threaten to "never have this again." Honestly, that's how much I hate it.

I'm crying. I'm going to try to get dressed so I can get to work and not look like I didn't sleep last night and have been crying......

The wife's mom passed about ten years ago and mine lives 1100 miles away. We send mine a nice card and or flowers and maybe call her on the day to chat.

My wife is not only my only squeeze but the mother of my kids, so she always gets some mothers day love from me and the kids, dinner, cards, flowers (whatever we can afford or make.), when the kids go to bed she gets my presents (again, whatever I can buy or make for her)

Just stop doing it. Don't threaten it. Just stop.

It might hurt their feelings, but yours matter too. And you DO deserve a day that is celebrated the way you want.

I don't want it to be Mother's Day. I know I'm really blessed that I have two beautiful daughters who love me. I know that I'm really blessed to have a step-mom that is more like a mom and friend. But it doesn't stop me from feeling sad. It doesn't stop me from wanting to just pretend this day never comes 'round.

If my family gets together we just go to dinner for all the mothers, and then who ever has a significant other usually gets their own gifts from them.

I get my mother and my wife a card. I encourage our kids to remember the day and at least get their mother a card.

Mothers and my wife who is a mom...the mother to my children. That's very important to me and she's a fabulous mom. It deserves recognition from me as well as our children.

My hubby always makes sure the day is special for me. I am not HIS mom, but he sure helped make ME a mom...if you know what I mean.

It's probably because I'm not a mom yet, but Mom's day is for my mom only!

I have never celebrated mothers day for my mom. I've always celebrated it for my dad or grandma. I never knew my mom and never really lived with her
