    Nope I haven't and wouldn't. I understand peoples thought process when they say birthays, easter, christmas etc are "just another day" and we can do the special things we do on those days any day, but we don't feel that way in our house. We love any excuse to celebrate and make each other feel loved an important. All of those days are very important to all of us, and I'd never want to be away from my family on any of those days. Now valentines day I really couldn't care less about and never have... BUT my eldest (5) this year was really excited about valentines day and making a card for me at school and stuff, so I guess I'll have to get into that one too

    I also haven't cared about my own birthday for a very long time, and never bothered to celebrate it before I had kids, but now my birthday is very important to my kids, so we celebrat. Just with a cake and stuff and they get to buy me some token gift because it's important to them.

    No, and while I won't see the kids in the morning this year we are cutting our weekend away short in order to spend time with them as well as both our mothers. Hubby booked us Fri and Sat night away without realising and its a 3 hour drive so we will prob be home by around lunch time.

    Havent, but this year im spending 3 hours away from them while i go and see the kurt cobain doco at the cinemas. Its only showing for 4 days and that day was the only possibility for me.

    I dont feel bad. My kids dont give a crap about much at all.

    I couldn't do the whole day I don't think, but last year my Mother's Day present to myself was sending DS1 to spend the night at my mum's. It works for everyone because my mum worships the ground my children walk / roll on.

    I am about to do this. We booked a weekend away ages ago for our 15th Wedding Anniversary and only realised a month ago that it was Mother's Day. I will see them in the afternoon but they will be spoiling Grandma instead (my Mum) I did say to my Mum that we would cancel if she wanted us to but she insisted that we go (Hubby and I don't get much alone time with 4 kids and 15 years is quite an achievement afterall)

    Yes. I spend the morning with them but DH takes them with him when he sees his mum and I go and visit my mum. I don't want to have to run around after them, breaking up fights, changing nappies while he kicks back having lunch with his parents. It's one of the few days a year I can be selfish without guilt.
