Mother’s Day is Sunday – where is the year going?? That’s right, I keep forgetting not to blink. It’s been an interesting process to get the hubby to understand that Mother’s Day isn’t the sole responsibility of
young children to make the day special for the mother of his child.
Last year I wrote about it for the Spin Cycle (oh how I miss the Spin Cycle – Jen? Will it be coming back? Please?) about how Mr. Literal Man thought he shouldn’t be the one to make that day special, since I’m not his mother. Ahem. But he did come through in the clutch, and it was special. He’s been having Princess Nagger ask me what I want for Mother’s Day, so I’m assuming he’s making plans.
I do know that we’ll be ordering dinner from our favorite family owned Italian restaurant for him to pick up and we can eat here (away from the crush of crazy people – we tend to avoid going out to eat on actual holidays since it’s just pure craziness), and Princess Nagger has already let slip she made some special art projects in school she’ll be bringing home today. Those are always my favorite. At this point, the only actual plans we have is to do sweet nothing – just kick back and have a nice relaxing day.
Which brings me to this week’s question(s):
Are you doing anything fun or special for Mother’s Day? If your kids are young (or when they were young) did your spouse or significant other handle the ‘special’ part?
Have a great weekend – and Happy Mother’s Day!
