Kinda have to. My birthday falls on mothers day every few years so when we lived in the same state we used to do a mothers day/birthday thing together. She really didnt like that tho. But thats the hazard of getting married... you both kinda need to learn to share your son/hubby.
My birthday falls on mothers day this year and instead of celebrating it on sunday we will be doing something for my bday on Saturday. Only cos I feel ripped off that I dont get 2 special days this year. Lol. (Jokes... mostly) I dont need to share the day with mil or mum cos we live far far away.

Hard to say how it all works yet.
My first Mother's Day I spent with my mum and DS1 as my husband was away. Didn't see MIL.
Last year I was still in hospital after the birth of DS2, so didn't really get Mother's Day celebrations.
This year I'm hoping to spend some part of it with my mum, but have the other part just with my little family. I'm not sure what hubby will do about seeing his mum but I will leave that up to him.

I think it's really important to celebrate both my mum and mil for Mother's Day but it does get tiring to spend time with both families and still get some time to feel like its about me too, and then dh birthday is on Mother's Day too this year which makes it even harder.

Yes! Mum, MIL,SIL,s and my sister and partners and kids all go to yum cha for lunch then usually the local park after so the kids can run around - DH and DS always get me breakfast in bed and a pressy in the morning so we have our little family time and it's nice to see my mum and MIL for lunch so we call all give them their presents , we always go out for lunch so no one has to cook and clean up !

When we are home in the morning dh and dd make a fuss and I get my special time and then if we are at a family celebration with mil or aunties etc, I get to share it with the other members of the mum club.

My special time is in the morning when I get a sleep in and breakfast cooked for me.
Apart from that of course I am happy to share, I want to see my Mum and want my MIL to see her son and Grandkids too.

Yes, we see both my mum and DH's mum. This is one of the days where we always try to accommodate everyone as MIL is as much a mum to my DH as my mum is to me, and both of them are equal grandmas to our kids.

I don't mind sharing with my MIL, I adore her. Sadly my mum passed away 10 years ago and it kills me that she isn't here to share the day with.
