Mother’s Day went downhill
Anyone else’s Mother’s day full of tantrums? lol. Anyways, I have had 3 Mother’s Days since my son was born. The first, it was just us as a family of three. I sent everyone in my family that is a Mom - a card. (My Mom, my sister and my MIL). I didn’t get a card in return from anyone. For my second Mother’s Day - we went away for the weekend with my in-laws. I had my son make my MIL a painted mug with a card. When we gave it to her at breakfast she had nothing for me and then came back hours later with a plant and said, “Sorry I forgot.” Again, I sent everyone cards and got nothing in return. This year, I sent everyone cards and got nothing as well. I sent my MIL a card and she thanked me last week for it. This year - I DIDN’T even get a TEXT from her. Nothing. I know she knew it was Mother’s Day since she posted it on Facebook. What do I do for next year? Do I stop making the effort for my MIL? She recognizes her son - my hubby - for Father’s Day. But I am so tired of making an effort for everyone else - especially her when there is zero effort for me in return. Thoughts?
