Nope. I plan on spending Mother's Day having a leisurely bubble bath, reading the Sunday papers in peace and a long nap. Alone.

Dad usually is on lunch/dinner duty, generally cooking a roast for me, my mother and Grandma. My Nan passed away almost three years ago so since then I have spent the afternoon at the cemetery balling my eyes out. We usually see MIL at some point as well. DS generally makes something for his grandmas and great-grandma, and my mum always buys me something from my son (which is great, as DP does too :P )

Hi! Thanks to everyone who helped us out in this thread. I've used your comments to write this article for those new mums who might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by commitments this mothers day! Thanks again!

not an option as we live overseas but I'd love to share Mother's Day with both my mum and MIL.
I think I'd take us for a nice boozy lunch followed by a movie

My mum died years ago so it's not really an issue here. My dad organises a big brunch for all the mothers in the family though (me, his wife, my step sisters) and we spend dinner with MIL.

My MIL has passed away, and yeah, I miss her a lot on Mothers Day
I tend to spend the day with family of varying kind. My sisters, my Mum, my nephews etc all tend to make a big deal about all of us ... anyone who is a Mum gets celebrated on Mothers Day so its really nice.

I'm happy to share it with whoever, I personally don't feel it is that big of a deal anyway, I work most mothers days and have only spent one with my daughter out of the 4 years I've been a mum. Our family doesn't so a big deal lunch or anything, I get breakfast in bed and usually just ring my mum

Yep last year we tried to have lunch together out. But the venue lost our booking so it kinda went pear shaped so wound up with fish and chips at the beach instead.

I would love to spend it with them, but they both live so far away that it will probably never happen

Nope - this year i want to spend it just with DH and DS. Im not close with my mum, or my MIL. And im not interested in going out of my way just to make others happy anymore when it's never appreciated. So Im going to keep the day for myself and not feel guilty about it.
