    If you are a mother, that is. Do your offspring acknowledge you?

    I'm not a mother but I was thinking about this today. I get the impression that my Mum things she should get a present but I just get her a card. Does that make me a bad daughter?
  3. I may get a card but am more likely to get phones calls which I like.
  4. I don't think it. I know it.
    Although Mother's Day here is not until May.
    But I always get something homemade, plus cards, also homemade, plus they spoil me all day from breakfast till beddie byes.
    I never need to remind them that Mother's Day is coming up.
    Not yet, anyway.
  5. Not even a bunch of flowers?

    I'll get whatever the kids make at school. OH will faff about, panic, then get me a bunch of flowers on Monday while I'm in the staff meeting.
    I'll send mu mum a card. In fact, must get it in the post tomorrow, or my name will be mud...

    Cariadlet made me a card at Brownies which she's hidden in her bedroom. That'll be nice, but what I'm really hoping for is a lie-in on Sunday morning.

    My mother phoned today to thank me for the flowers(Flying Flowers), I'll get nothing because I've never had a child and my Libyan 'sons' are not in a postition to send anything.
  10. Sent flowers to Mum yesterday, bought some pottery mushrooms for MiL at a fair we went to last weekend

    An amazon package arrived yesterday and then disappeared upstairs so I am hopeful [​IMG]
  11. I am a EVIL step-mother. Not expecting anything.
  12. Son2 has already asked me if I would rather not have chocolate since I'm on a diet, so I presume he's planning something else. Son1 always used to get me a prez but his missis only gets her mother a card so now he only gets me a card! But he does come round to deliver it in person. Daughter rings and sends flowers, even though I always say "send them a week earlier/later and pay half!"
  13. No, but I'm not a mother!

  15. Will get card ,pressie and phone call. Lovely.
  16. No kids so nothing for me... My Mum is no longer with us so not giving anything... I'm usually a bit low on the day cause I miss her...so special hugs to all who would love to spend a fortune on their mums but can't for whatever reason....
  17. Are you giving your mother anything?

    My mother died in 1974 :) So no, I'm not.

    Could you perhaps buy a plant or some flowers to have in your home in memory of her? Or maybe light a candle?

    I'm sorry! That was insensitive of me.
  20. No problem, nutella.
    I was 17 when she died and it still hurts.
