This will be my 3rd mothers day
1st year: i got a piece of paper at 9pm from my 11yr old sister that said "sorry! Isaac loves you "
Last year: I watched my mum open all her presents, ended up making the breakfast in bed, and had a big fat cry because I felt so unloved
This year I'm taking myself to yum cha on the Sunday morning, with ds 2.5yrs and I brought myself a locket necklace and got it engraved with happy mothers day love Isaac.
The lady at the jewellers looked at me like I was a nutcase. Probably should have taken ds with me,
My mum always brought herself presents for these occasions when we were too young to do it

Im in the same boat. I dont get anything, for any occasion and its quite upsetting. But at the same time we dont have money to spend on presents. We have enough to get by and I am thankful for that. As long as DD has all she needs I am happy.
I did get quite upset last year when it was my 25th birthday and NO ONE remembered. No one at all. Well actually my sis texted me, but apart from her no one. DP forgot, Mum forgot (and she was up helping me with DD who was born a week before), went to nans and she forgot, dad forgot (that hurt the most as he always rings me every birthday first thing in the morning to sing me happy birthday).
I honestly wanted to cry, I didnt say anything for a few hours to see if people would remember but yeah, I was forgotten by 99% of people and this happened on my 18th and my 21st but for those I was living in the bush with no fam around and had no one as stupid EXH was too busy shagging his s&^@s to care.
So yeah, I know how you feel there chicken.

Aww, cuddles that sucks.
I'm really lucky, i'm a single mum and last year was my first ever mothers day. My wonderful parents went out of there way to make sure it was special, brought me a pressie from P and all that.
I say, if ur partner wont do it for you, take urself out for sone pampering. Celebrate urself for wat a wonderful mummy u are

So upset right now. Stupid dh. He acted like it was just another ordinary day today. So i told him he has to get dd & ds to give me the presents they've made at kindy/daycare and teach them how to make a fuss of me- its part of his job! So he tells dd to give me her gift (which she was beautiful about). He then acted all normal and aloof like he always is, and i asked him why he was not making an effort. Guess what he said?"you're not my mother". A$$hole.

I'm actually feeling quite sad reading these and wish I could share my DH around so everyone could have a lovely mother's day :-(
