Mother’s Day is this weekend and everywhere I go I’ve been bombarded by ads for jewelry, flowers, spa treatments, books, and what not. I really don’t care what my kids get me for Mother’s Day. Well, that’s not entirely true. I do care enough to hope that it’s NOT any of these:
1. A meal at Hooter’s
Really? What am I supposed to say: Thanks, kids! I love my free wings and don’t pay any attention to the scantily clad woman with huge ta ta’s serving them! No, I could think of no place I’d rather avoid on Mother’s Day than Hooters.
2. A meal I have to plan and/or cook
That’s no fun. That’s reality.
3. A long cleany thingy for the cobwebs in the corner of my ceilings
I need this, really I do. But I don’t want it wrapped up with a big bow for Mother’s Day. My husband’s a clean freak, so he might actually be excited to get this for Father’s Day.
4. What my mother always wanted for Mother’s Day
I’m the middle of 3 girls. We were all born within 5 years. Growing up, whenever we asked our mom what she wanted for Mother’s Day, she always replied seriously, “I just want you all to get along for the day.” Then she sighed loudly. I could never give her what she wanted, mostly because my sisters were buttheads, so I’m certainly not asking the impossible of my children.
What about you? Is there anything you’d rather not receive on Mother’s Day?
P.S. My sisters weren’t really buttheads!
