If you are on the internet ever, there’s a chance you’ve seen the “What To Get Mom for Mother’s Day” videos going around.
Basically their message is leave mom alone. Let her sleep in. Do her chores. Give her the TV remote.
Don’t get me wrong…
Sleeping is in nice.
Having a clean house is nice.
Not having to adult is nice.
But you know what else is nice? Thoughtful gifts from my husband and kids. Their time. Their gratitude and appreciation toward me.
I hate the idea of Mother’s Day as a “day off.” I want to spend it with the people who made me a mom! And with MY mom! We are celebrating moms on Mother’s Day and dangit, I want to be celebrated. Not ignored.
Ignore me on Tuesday. Please. Please?
