Mother's Day
Posted by BlackSheepTwoOneFour on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 5:56 PM
Thankfully, my wife isn't asking for much from me. All she wants is a day of doing nothing but plenty of R&R and a dessert for me to bake. This is what she wants: Toenails painted - Done! Household chores/laundry - Consider it done. Will dump that one on my son. LOL! Homemade chocolate cake - Easy peasy. Don't need no stinkin' box mix for this one. Backrub - that is a given. LOL! My famous Cheesy Chicken for dinner. Oh yeah now we're talking. So let's hear your missus' wants and wishes.

Oddly enough, my wife's Mothers' Day gift showed up in today's mail - an autographed photo of anchorman Tom Brokaw. I know - weird, right? But, she's been on me for years about getting one.

[sigh] Every year I try to convince my wife that she's not MY mother and therefore no special treatment should be expected. So far, she has yet to see the logic of my argument. Looks like I'm going gift shopping. Again.

As she inevitably points out-- there's a reason Fathers Day comes after Mothers Day.

I hate it when she's right.

.......she's not MY mother.

That's been my take for a lifetime. That said, I'm 7 yrs divorced now and currently rethinking the whole thing. Geeked

First Mother's Day without the wifemate, and her girls ignored her for 25 years.  Double edge deal this year, will be missing her and sad she is gone, but I get off cheap.

We know that "Mother's Day" and "Father's Day," are just phony "Hallmark Holidays," so we  ignore them.

Mother's Day and Father's Day don't bother me. Now... take Valentine's Day. I absolutely hate Valentine's Day! Why do women need a stupid holiday like that for? LOL!

"Shes not my mother" is ridiculous if shes the mother of your kids.

What your wife wants for mothers day is for your kids to honor her without being reminded, forced or bribed to do so. Raise them right.

My wife and I are not much for the "card" holidays either... If the kids want to do something for us on those days, fine. But seeing as how I work both of those Sundays and our kids are all grown now, we don't get worked up about these things. Birthdays and actual Bonafide holidays are a different thing. But again with my work schedule for most of our marriage, they are not always celebrated in the actual dates or at traditional hours...

Well, she's my second (and final) wife, so she isn't, in fact, the mother of my kids.But in order to keep her my final, I've realized that certain compromises have to be made. Mothers Day gifts are a small-- but irritating-- price to pay. And she generally makes up for it come Fathers day.

 I lost my dad at 5 and my mom at 34, so the days have never meant much to me.  My wife is usually in the end of year wrap-up so we spend the weekend together working at school.  My kids learned very early in life that if their mom was happy, then their dad was happy so they try to make her happy :)

When I was married, I always did something for the Mrs. True, she may not have been MY mother, but she was the  mother of our kids. Good enough for me.

Nothing.  Last 3 or 4 gifts I got her, she didn't like and returned for a refund.  Women!

Mother's Day anecdote. My 85 year old mother has been leaving messages all day (3) because I found out that a woman was charging her $ 50 an hour to iron her clothes ($450 so far in two months). Drove her to ATM to get cash. Mom is really mad- they are nicest women to her.

Went and visited my mom in the nursing home.  Thankfully her dementia has not progressed to the stage where she doesn't recognise her children or grand children.  I think she had a pretty good day.
