Mother’s Day

All the mum's, 4 generations.

Dear Husband’s who are also Dad’s,

This Sunday, yes THIS SUNDAY 8th May is Mother’s Day. And for me this is a particularly special one. My first Mother’s Day. Now I’m sure there are many husband’s all over Australia that have lovingly thought about what to get their wife for their first Mother’s Day, and others that have conspired with their kids to get Mum that extra special gift.

And then there’s the husband’s that need reminding, and hints. Ok, well not so much hints as they’ll just flat out ask you what you want. So you can have points for making sure you don’t screw the present up by asking, but some initiative wouldn’t go astray. OK? Ok.

And then there’s the wives who don’t even bother with the reminding and the hints and just go straight for the BYO gift.

You see what men, husband’s, don’t realise is that really what us Mum’s are after, especially us newbies, is just a little bit, ok a lot, of acknowledgement. Acknowledgement that a) It’s Mother’s Day and b) a little thanks for looking after the kids, cleaning the house, doing the dishes, and you know just being a good Mum. We don’t need big fancy expensive gifts (even though diamonds are a girls bestfriend), a card and a bunch of flowers (even if they are from the servo) would do the trick.

So guys if you haven’t got your arses into gear for Sunday, RUN don’t walk. Trust me those servo flowers could get you outta a whole lot of trouble!

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mum and all the wonderful Mum’s out there for Sunday!

    I hope you have a very special day for your first one as a mum!

    I have had some complete disappointments, due to my husband completely forgetting!!! But most have been lovely. My mother-in-law is taking us all our for lunch at a fancy hotel on Sunday. Nice! :)

    Hon, I hope you had a fab Mother’s Day!

    All I want is a sleep-in, brekky in bed and lots of cuddles. All of which I received. And then some.
