Truthfully, I would probably be mad if DH went out and got anything expensive for me since we have so many medical bills right now. A day out with my boys and some flowers would be the best gift for me.
And I had actually thought we would have a LO last year on Mother's day so it was a little depressing for me that we still were not pregnant. This year will be much better :)
This is my first mother's day. I just want DS's reflux medicine to work for him. I have a feeling if it does it could change so much for us :) Last year I hoped I would have a LO by now but I was beginning to worry it might not happen. I'm looking forward to spending a nice cozy day with DS and DH.
This is my first Mothers Day and I am so excited. Not excited about gifts or anything like that, but just excited to be celebrating it as a MOM! It's almost hard to imagine. We wont be home so I hope we can find something fun to do while we are out of town. That's pretty much all I can ask for right now. I'd hate to have a boring 1st mothers day all because we are out of town. But I'm sure DH will make it memorable somehow.
This reminds me...I should start planning something cool for Father's Day!
This will be my first Mother's Day as a mommy. Last Mother's Day we were TTC and very hopeful (and that did end up being the month we conceived!). I don't want anything special - just maybe a sweet card from DH, or maybe the opportunity to sleep in a little. :)
I am spoiled and know what DH got me already (well mostly, because he wanted to know if I'd wear it, and what my neck size is). He got me something like the first item listed on this page:
It will have the white topaz on the top (for DH's birthstone), Aquamarine in the middle (My birthstone), and an Amethyst on the bottom (for LO's birthstone). Our first anniversary is Sunday after Mother's Day, so he kind of got a joint thing.
misskassielynn:So after reading everyone's answers, I feel like I sound really greedy. So, I just wanted to clarify, I thought of this because DH asked what I wanted, I said that I didn't know, and he told me I'd better figure it out. So, I figured it out and got so excited I thought I'd post!
I don't expect anything for Mother's Day this year. Just glad to have my little man. DH and I are slowly but surely prying ourselves out of hospital and re-model debt
I do look forward to brunch with my family and dinner later with DH's family. It should be a nice day with family, hopefully the weather is nice.
You don't sound greedy at all! I would love to get a nice gift (jewelry) next year when we're not in debt anymore. This year is just a difficult year for us. But what I REALLY can't wait for is those handmade cards from DS that he'll make at school or with DH. Those are priceless!
You do not sound greedy!
If we had money I would be telling MH I want an elliptical or something to get rid of my last "baby", lol. We are just too broke for me to be able to even want anything, sad.
It's a little silly and overpriced for what it is (a coffee mug) but the only material thing on my wish-list is this, personalized with LO's picture.
