    We have done a number of things. Usually I get spoilt in the morning, lunch with mum & dinner with mil. It works well but its a big day!

    Last year MIL was away & we had a BBQ at my house with nana, mum, my sis (who is a mum to 5) and myself (plus all the kids & hubbies) it was PERFECT (except for the fact mil wasn't there )

    I don't have a relationship with my own mum but more than happy to now spend the afternoon with mil. I still want the morning with just our little family though.

    Dh's extended family have on more than 1 occasion seen it (and fathers day) as an excuse to get the whole family together for a big gathering. I like special days to now be spent by ourselves, not preparing food to take and travelling for hours

    My mums bday usuLly falls on mothers day. So for me it's not mothers day unless I'm with my mum.

    Having said that though, I still have to share it with MIL so it's less of a celebration for me now, in that I don't get to spend my mums birthday with only her.

    Doesn't matter though. It's still a nice day for everyone.

    Unfortunately my mum is up there watching over us. I would give anything to have her back and Mother's Day is still very difficult for me after 15yrs without her. I buy flowers for her on Mother's Day and have a good cry.

    When she was alive I would spend the morning with her and the afternoon with MIL. Nowadays we take MIL out for lunch.

    Sure

    We have a big extended family morning tea or afternoon tea. Then the rest of the day with our own little family. This year dh is away for mothers day so we will do our little celebration the week later.

    This is my first mothers day and I feel pretty special that I can share that with my mum. MIL is working but will see her before or after

    Yeah I have given up having anytime for myself on mothers day.. it's always about both my mum and mil... they don't even care to ask what I'd like to do with my own kids. Same as Fathers day. I am getting to dislike mothers day/fathers day. same story every year. one of them always have to have a tantrum if it doesn't go their way.

    I have no problem 'sharing' Mother's Day with my Mum and MIL. It's a day for Mum's and although I'm now a Mum, so are they, and have been for years so it's only fair.

    The only thing that bothers me is that the older you get the more complicated and less relaxing it is. When we were younger my siblings and I would make breakfast for Mum and we'd have a leisurely brunch. Now we have to fit in having time for me and my DD, seeing my Mum and MIL and fitting it in around mine and DH siblings visiting their MIL's and having family time as well. I'd love to find some way to consolidate all the visiting so it could be more relaxing, as it is now, I find it less relaxing than a normal weekend.

    I'm sure she's up there watching you

    Yes, we usually celebrate with lots of our extended family, so my mum, aunties, uncles, cousins, grandparents etc. I love it and wouldn't change it for the world
