Hey, did you know Mother's Day is coming up? Mother's Daaayyyy! It's almost heeeeere! Ooh, ooh, Mother's Day is this Sunday! Say what? Mother's Day, that's what! Mother's Day is right around the corner!
Ok, now here is where I pinch the bridge of my nose and sigh in irritation. We. All. Know. It's. Mother's. Day.
I am getting very tired of hearing about it, it makes me feel like the pressure is on me to do I don't know what. Be extra gracious and sweet to my children. Be the epitome of love and joy. Sorry, peeps, you're looking for the big J.C. And for everyone who has a mother (pretty much all of you unless you were hatched from an egg), the pressure is on you too, to find her a nice gift and to show her what a great job she did raising you.
Maybe I am just annoyed at how commercial it is. Appreciating someone sincerely is great. But please... take it from a mom - don't waste your money on buying something just for the sake of buying something. A better bet would be to make her dinner and clean everything up afterward. For a week. Now that would be the mother's day to end all mother's days!
