I get the "he should appreciate me every day" thing, I really do. I wish all people could appreciate their other half every day.
I appreciate my DP daily. I tell him things to let him know that I do daily, too. As he does for me. He makes me feel amazing, every single day.
it's still nice to have that one day, just one day a year... where I am responsible for absolutely nothing.
Not a single meal was cooked by me yesterday. Not a single dish was washed by me yesterday. I got to sleep in for as long as I wanted.
I just love mothers day! It's just not practical for me to never do housework or never cook. We'd be living in filth and never eating!
I do the same for him on father's day. I usually buy him a dvd of some sort so he can lie in bed and just watch tv and be responsible for nothing.
