    No, but if the opportunity arose, I'd seriously consider it (ie: like a night away in a hotel with a pamper package included!)

    No I haven't. This year I won't see them as much though as my sisters and I are taking our mum out for a child free morning and lunch!

    I don't think I have (have only had 2 with kids so far), but it wouldn't bother me in the slightest. Maybe when the kids are older, it might bother them? I dunno... doesn't really mean anything to me though.

    DH is taking my baby and my 6 yr old to visit his parents this weekend (we live rural VIC and they live on the Gold Coast). Part of me regrets the decision (it's my baby's first birthday on Mother's day ), but my in laws have gone through so much in the last 6 months that it really will be the sunshine after the storm. I just hope my MIL gets how big this is for me.

    I have spent a couple of mothers days apart from DD1 when it falls on her weekends with her dad.
    I dont see it as a huge big deal personally and she always gives me her handmade cards & gifts either before she goes or when she comes back

    Yes when FOB was being an a**hat but I quite liked the opportunity to pat myself on the back and went for a long bush walk. I think my ds was more upset than I was.
