Mother's Day is a Crock of Shit

The Lochness monster
A Banshee
A pot of gold at the end of a rainbow
Mothers Day

All of these things have one thing in common -- they are all myths.
I guess on Mother's Day your kids are supposed to bring you breakfast in bed and tell you they love you while they shower you with gifts they made themselves. And, of course, your loving husband brings you flowers and thanks you for being the best mom ever to his children.

Well, guess what -- that isn't how it is in my house!  My kids are totally pissed off because they spent all their allowance two days after they got it and now have no money to buy me anything and making something is too much work.
And you know what? I'm used to it. That is how it is in my life most of the time; my kids take me for granted because that is what kids do. They expect you to be there because you always are.
Why should they reward you for doing what you promised to do when you had them?
Do I need a card to tell me I am the best Mom they ever had? How the hell would they know? They only have me to compare to.

Mother's Day is just another day that puts everyone under pressure to perform a certain way, and I, for one, do not need more pressure to be a certain kind of mom.

I have decided not to acknowledge Mother's Day anymore, except to do something with my mom but she doesn't consider it even that important anymore. She told me that she didn't feel like sitting around forever in a restaurant waiting for food that isn't even all that great. 

So, instead we went to Brunch and had fun and were home by 1:30 in the afternoon, just in time to take a nap in our sweats.
