    Mother's Day Reminder!!

    Mother's Day is in a week. Sunday, May 11th. Plan ahead. Don't forget your mom.

    And, guys, if your kids are too small to acknowledge their mother, YOU do something for your wife, even if she's just pregnant.

    It doesn't count until the little tyke is out.

    Even those "Reserved Mothers to Be" parking spots agree.

    Done and done, Deb. I always make a big deal out of it for Mrs. K.

    Being the bastard son that I am, I tend to call my mother, but that's about it. :embarassed:

    Re: Mother's Day Reminder!!

    I was actually just about to post a thread asking what the best thing to get for mothers on Mother's Day is. I was thinking about getting all the moms I know a bouquet of flowers (each, of course). Is that too cliché?

    IMO, anything you get is perfect. It's just nice to be acknowledged.

    Re: Mother's Day Reminder!!

    So then why does it matter what day we do it? Why can't we acknowledge it at other times and have that 'count' for Mother's day? If it it expected, what's the point?

    These mother/earth/plastic/diarrhea/book/piano/deaf polynesian autonomists/paperbag/my pc days are just plain stupid imo. Hypocritical too, usually :)

    If you love someone, set them free - from a fake celebration of one of their attributes.

    see my note to you above, you entitled ingrate.

    To the other naysayers: Spoil sports. After everything your mom did for you, you can't even do one nice, structured gesture without getting all "it's too contrived". Jesus.

    How do you know his mother didn't abuse/molest/abandon him as a child? I think you're being pretty ****ing presumptuous with your little holier-than-thou attitude, lil' debbie.

    Re: Mother's Day Reminder!!

    I just don't think doing things on days when we are told to specifically by society, the news, card companies, random people on the internet, etc really means anything. Wouldn't it be more meaningful to do it on a random day to show that it was actually me thinking, "Hey, mom is awesome, I should show her that." instead of society telling me to go tell her that?

    How do you know my mother doesn't also find it contrived? How do you know I don't do something nice anyway? Just because you managed to squeeze out a crotchfruit of your own doesn't give you the right to tell me who and what I am or how I should treat my mother. You are the one with the sense of entitlement.

    Re: Mother's Day Reminder!!

    I find it so much easier to be mom's slave for the day than try to figure out something she'd actually like and keep.

    Cheap? Sure. But the appreciation in my mom's voice is quite sincere. I get happiness out of that. Win-win.

    If it was not for your Father, would your Mother be your Mother? So Remember Dad on Mothers Day.

    The suck up part is that I go to church to make mom happy.

    Re: Mother's Day Reminder!!

    There are many mothers that don't feel it's contrived. If yours does, and you don't observe it, then why do you need to contribute to a "remember mother's day" thread? Why not just say "I acknowledge her on other days" instead of just saying it's all contrived? You came across as just being resentful of the whole thing. You start off by saying a bunch of things right out the gate that are discounting and insulting..."it doesn't count till the tyke is out" and ..."presents for just being hormonal". It certainly sets the tone, to me, of just being adverserial and rude. If you have an opinion other than the way this thread was intended, as a reminder to people who would LIKE to remember, then it really doesn't serve you well to get your point across by simply being disparaging about the whole thing.

    @Bort I would expect that people who don't like their mothers would just ignore a "mother's day reminder" thread instead of just posting rude "hormonal" remarks, little timmy.
