He knows what is good for him!
Let me preface this by saying I had an incredible Mother’s Day. I have a phenomenal husband and he took very good care of me. Having said that, it got me thinking about how different my experience may be compared to others.
Case in point, I have a friend who has a beautiful 6-year-old boy. This Mother’s Day she received NADA. Of course her child is far too young to go out and buy her a gift, but Mr. Friend was perfectly capable of going out and getting a gift.
His response to that logic is, “Hell no! She isn’t my momma!” In a word, that is just pathetic. When I first heard this, I was shocked. Apparently, those words have been said many times by many men. Heck, my mother-in-law even said the same thing to me many years ago after my hubby hadn’t given me a gift. I looked at her like she was completely bonkers because, of course, she was at that moment. She has since been schooled on the matter. Yes, I was the teacher. Let’s just say that conversation will not happen again.
I’m curious. I want to know when it became acceptable to be so dismissive of those that bore your children when it comes to Mother’s Day. Even if every child I have showers me with gifts, I fully expect my man to acknowledge my role as the mother of his children also. Hello! Childbirth is dangerous and usually extremely painful. Come to think of it, raising children is also dangerous and extremely painful.
Yes, all things considered, I believe ANY mother deserves something special on Mother’s Day. Jewelry is optional, but if guys would get a clue they would realize that exercising this jewelry option will almost gauaran – dang – tee massive rewards for him.
No, I had a great Mother’s Day because my husband is wise and he shows me how much he appreciates me. He knows what is good for him!
