Mothers day.

My sister sent me a card. STBH didn't. I guess we aren't married yet so I am really NOT a step mom. Still, I feel like one and i am dissapointed.
Happy mothers day to all of you who KNOW you are mothers despite what the papers say or the lack of cards and recognition.

I know what you mean. My Dh is on the list. He said today that he still has to get me something!! He said he didn't have time before. I said it's not a matter of time. It's a matter of priority and planning. I told him to just give me some money and I'll go buy something myself. Grrrrrrr!!

I got nothing. Not a happy mother's day, not a thank you, nada, nothing...unless you count the laundry waiting to be folded.

I just don't get it. I know I'm not a BM, I'm not even an official SM, but after 8 years together, and living with/helping raise quasi-SS for 6 years, doesn't that count for SOMETHING?

I'm with you, I'm disappointed. Worse yet, I feel like a child throwing a temper tantrum if I say anything. So, I guess I'll just suck it up like last year and become even more bitter.

Well what could have been good went so bad, my boyfriend offered to cookout for me and two of my friends for mothers day. Only it started raining. So i told him "WE" can cook in the house. So he proceeded to sit in the livingroom while I cooked dinner. Each time I asked him to do something he acted so put out. But here's the topper. I told him on FATHERS DAY he can cook me dinner, he said why your not a mother.... what a blow. I said yeah your right, remember that when you want me to care for your son. I play mother like I play wife, too bad they don't have a card for that! He said that came out all wrong, I said don't worry about it. I finished dinner, visited with my friends and as soon as they left, I jumped in the bath and went to bed. Happy Mothers Day and goodnight.
Believe me I didn't expect anything, but to hear him say it like that hurt worse. Oh well until next year.
