Mother's Day Plans?

Anyone have any plans for Mother's Day?  (Whether you already have LO's or are a FTM)

We're going to a brunch with my parents.  I'm really looking forward to it, plus I plan on wearing my new maternity dress for the first time, finally supposed to be in the 70's on Sunday.

Re: Mother's Day Plans?

  • I love brunch! Have fun with the fam!

    Coincidentally, it is the week we are leaving for our babymoon, so H thinks that's sufficient. I am fine with that. T- minus 3 days until my toes are in the sand!

    Going for brunch as well with SO, mom and MIL. Is it bad that I'm looking forward to the waffles more then anything else?

  • If I say nothing, H will realize it the morning of and try to do something nice after church.
    If I say something now he will ask me what I want to do.
    I'm going to tell him that I want to take a day and go shopping alone. Seriously that would be the best thing ever.

  • Brunch with my fam in the morning and a late lunch with my husband's fam in the afternoon. I don't think either side of the family considers me a "real mom" yet, so it's just about celebrating our moms.

  • H is asking what I want to do, but I just want him to figure something out himself! Even if that's just making breakfast and letting me relax. A day without having to plan would be wonderful.

  • We're going to the Melting Pot with my family. They're running a special for Mother's Day.

  • I'm moving this weekend and my family is helping us move... That includes my mom, so I'm sure we'll go out to eat and I will be giving her a gift too.

    I didn't even think about it being Mother's Day for myself, any FTM celebrating it for themselves?

    I am hoping H has something planned or is going to plan something. If not, we will likely end up at my sister's for brunch with all of my sisters and my parents. But I REALLY hope H does something instead.

    We are cooking out for dinner with my parents.  DS is making me something in preschool, so I can't wait to see what that is.

  • We bought our moms tickets to see Willy Nelson and Allison Krause for mothers day.  On another note, when I mentioned that this would be my first mothers day to my mom, she got all defensive and told me that I am not a mom yet (FTM), so I don't get to celebrate mothers day yet.  Opinions?

    Me too.  My son told me after preschool on Tuesday that he made something "secret" and he can't tell me.

    i know it's terrible, but all i really want for mother's day is to be alone.  i want my whole family to go somewhere else so i can just do whatever i want all day long.  that won't happen, and doesn't seem very "motherly" but it would be awesome. 


    I almost had DH book me a hotel room for a weekend alone for my first Mother's Day when DS was in 4 month wakeful hell.  All of my friends were all "OMG DH is taking us to brunch and we're going to have so much fun as a family" and all I wanted to do was run away.  Thankfully that feeling has lessened over the past 3 years but I can promise you that at some point on Sunday I will be out doing something alone.

  • We're going to brunch with my family at a casual place called Oink that has a flight of bacon on the menu and the dishes are very bacon heavy.  I'm excited.  We'll be celebrating my mom, DH is sending his mom flowers since she doesn't live locally.   

    I'm a FTM, so I don't really count this as my first Mother's Day personally.  I know some people do, and I don't really think it matters either way, it's not my place to judge other people's celebrations.

  • Even though I am only a MTB I really hope DH does something.  I mean he did knock me up with a surprise baby and I've since gained 20 pounds, can't wear heels, having problems sleeping, had to cancel/rearrange our honeymoon, cancel most of our summer plans, no summer margs for me, etc...

     

    I think I at least deserve a card and an ice cream sundae.  With extra whipped cream and cherries. If that makes me an AW then so be it.

    I'll be a FTM too, and I was wondering the same thing. Do we get to celebrate it too? I mean, we are baking this kid after all. And I already feel like a mom. Not gonna lie, I'll be kind of bummed if hubby doesn't do something for me too. Wah wah.

    i'm glad it's lessened for you.  3 kids and another pregnancy later i want to be alone more than ever :P
    Ha, ask me again next year!  I think a 7 day cruise alone might be in order if you care to join me.  ;)

  • KUGirl09Danielle0989 I am a FTM and I 100% think that we should celebrate mother's day. We ARE someone's mother -- we're growing and caring for our children all day every day. Just because the baby hasn't been born yet doesn't mean we don't count :)

    You just brought tears to my eyes. Thanks! :-)

    I think you count! You are still going through pregnancy and all the fun stuff that comes with it.

  • Also having brunch with the fam (my parents, grandmother, and aunt). No idea what I'm wearing yet - I may have to wear one of the maternity dresses that my mom made for me. Nice gesture, but really NMS.

  • Depending on if dh has to work or not. If he does then me and the kids will go for a walk and then later go over to my inlaws for a make your own pizza night. If he doesn't work then we will go for a walk around town and he usually makes me breakfast.
    I'm sending my mom a card since she's not local and the next time I go home to visit we will do something together. For my mil we are getting her a gift certificate to get her nails done.

  • According to H and the other neighborhood mom's I do not get celebrated as a MTB because I am "not a mom yet" which kind of hurt my feelings. They told me this around a bonfire this past weekend when they were all drinking when H asked their opinion. 

    In H's defense he did say later he was worried it would take away from how special my actual first Mother's Day with our son would be.
