Oldest Kids attended public school for a few years. During this time Mother’s Day was a big deal. The school really played the day up and had the kids make gifts. Once they were home for school, aka homeschooled, Mother’s Day was not on their radar screen, and I was OK with that. I mean, I was the one in charge of putting things on their radar screen.
Now that the kids are almost and/or grown, they need to mark the day as something special. I have a hard time with Mother’s Day. The kids want to do something special for me, but the truth is that they do special things for me every day. Every single day they tell me how much they love and appreciate me and all I do. They are aware of sacrifices made and always willing to assist when I say, “I need a helper”. They think I am cool and are comfortable bringing their friends home. This is what I have every single day. I am beginning to think I should spend Mother’s Day thanking them for being such fantastic kids and letting me know they feel the same way about me.
What could be better?
