Do you celebrate Mom's Day?

Generally speaking, my family doesn't celebrate what we dub "Hallmark Holidays".

Consequently, today I'm doing what I almost always do on Sundays -- working out, working, cleaning (very little), perhaps snoozin' a bit, playing with my son, making dinner and reading the paper.

Real thrilling, huh?

So how about you? Doin' anything special today?

(On a side note, who do you think is the world's worst mom? Ms. Lohan is in contention, but I think that Ms. Hilton might be pretty bad, too...)

We already had Mothers' Day last Sunday, because it is always the first Sunday of May in Hungary.
My kids picked me some lilac flowers from our garden, my son decorated his with daisies, pretending it to be a wonderflower that bears two types of flowers at the same time. Subconsciously, he was expressing his admiration to my superpowers :))
- just kidding.

I received the floweres, and my daughter made me a nice drawing.
That was all that was special about Mom's day.

My husband makes the day about me. He has the kids clean with him in the morning if anything is out of place, he brings me to breakfast, then gets dinner later on at our favorite Greek place. I do get presents and stuff. It's like a birthday except for some weird reason, he makes the kids do whatever I say and volunteers them for labor. We all put down weed barrier and mulched, he built these fence-like things I've wanted. That was the best part. Getting help with the landscaping for a change. lol

No cards or flowers though. I hate that crap.

Worst mom, I don't really know. I bet you Lizzie Borden's mom was coo coo cachoo.

We spent the day at my inlaws. Jason cooked a delicious lunch for us, we practiced our golf swings, and spent the afternoon in their hot tub. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing day!!

That sounds like a very sweet day! I love lilacs, but only hand-picked ones... and drawings are the BEST.

J:

I believe you are a telemarketer. Now scoot!

Beth:

That's pretty cool. Hey, cleaning is a huge present in my eyes. Heck, I sure as sin don't do it!

Aine:

Now THAT is fun! I guess my invitation got lost in the mail...? (*smiles*)

Good for you -- we don't celebrate either Mother's Day or Father's Day, preferring to pretend that our kids celebrate us EVERY day (yeah, I know what that means, but it's the thought that counts, right?) Invariably, one of my neighbors will ask me what I got for Mother's Day (she's heard about our philosophy, but tends to ignore it) then she'll give me a pitiful look when I tell her the truth and launch into a long description of her breakfast in bed, roses, etc. Sigh.

That said, if we did celebrate Mother's Day, I'd want EXACTLY what Beth got. The Greek food, yes, the help in the garden absolutely, but more than anything, this: "he makes the kids do whatever I say and volunteers them for labor." That is just fantastic!
