    I should add it's only been a short while since mothers day - we've recently discussed the selfishness of mothers for receiving gifts lol.

    Haha - I was going to bring that up.

    Women who expect a card/ present on Mother's Day are SO selfish. The children are present enough!

    Same goes for all those indulgent dads on Father's Day!

    And Valentine's Day/ anniversaries? Pfft! Your partner is present enough!!

    And don't even get me started on how being alive is the gift, and birthday presents are just a self-indulgent luxury that make me sick...



    Doing something nice for someone else is just NOT on, people! No gifts!

    As for it being a 'push' present - well, DD didn't come out that way, but I figure I pushed her out of my belly through the sunroof (with a little help).

    Hahahaha spot on Girl X.

    People make their own traditions. I don't think more or less of people for whatever they want to celebrate with gifts or no gifts.

    If people want pressies for anything and their family other half whatever are happy to oblige, go for it! Like i said i dont care what others do. I dint think its selfish or self indulgent or whatever else.

    Ive probably become accustomed to not getting anything for things because we never have any moneh!

    If a partner is so inclined to buy a new mother something because that is how he chooses to show his appreciation to the mother of his child, then that is great.
    This too

    I've never really received gifts until I met DP. He loves buying me presents. First present he ever gave me was diamond earrings. I think I actually went into shock.

    Personally I prefer perishable gifts - food lol. Because I have too much stuff. But I understand the jewellery thing - something to pass down to your children

    I still wear the necklace my mum bought me 10 years ago for my birthday every day.

    Yerp, that was the discussion the past mother's day MM


    Gosh this place teaches me so much. DP has bought me jewellery so I'm demanding and have high expectations. I want flowers after giving birth as an acknowledgement of the hard work - selfish. I asked my dad for soft cheese and salami after sacrificing it for the 10 months I was pregnant - I don't care about my baby.

    BUT weddings are "my day" and everybody should bow to me when I get married. That seems to be the one and only day mothers are allowed to be acknowledged or celebrated among the BH crew.

    This is lovely
