I don’t really feel the need to celebrate haha but I did order take out for lunch. My mom lives across the country so I’m missing her a lot today.

There’s plenty of other days for me to celebrate, it’s no big deal. I’m going to call my mom tonight, other than that my SO and I went for brunch but not because it’s Mother’s Day, just because it’s Sunday.

It’s just like any other day for me. My mother lives across the country, but I sent her a gift. I have pets, but don’t really see it as necessary to celebrate anything.

I don’t think the world necessarily “forgets” non-mother’s exist on Mother’s Day. I think it’s perfectly ok to recognize a specific individual (Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays) without it being detrimental to any other groups.

I find this attitude bizarre, TBH. This is my first Mother’s Day as a mom, but all the other years were about MY mom and grandma. I’d call them or send flowers or a card.

Like every Sunday we are having mimosas. Pretty standard.

Today is just a typical Sunday for me. A couple of friends are coming over and we’ll sip on some wine and snack on some black bean burgers that Darling Husband is putting on the grill. I’m a Godmom, but my Goddaughter’s all the way in CA.

Hanging out with my mom. We aren’t planning on having children and in the future we may get cards for each other celebrating not being parents lol just for fun.

Darling Husband got a membership to Costco, so we wandered through the store and bought some things. It was unrelated to Mother’s Day but still fun.

I called my mum. Otherwise it’s just the same as any other day. I don’t need acknowledgement on Mother’s Day, I am not a mother *shrug*.

I treated myself to some subscription boxes that I’ve been eyeing (because Mother’s Day is a sad day for me so I wanted to cheer myself up a bit).

Aquaria:  you either are a mom and deserve recognition today, or you’re not a mom so today’s not about you. I’m not a mom so will celebrate other women who are moms in my life.

Sorry but wtf?

Do you celebrate father’s day even though your not a father? Or secretary day even though your not a secretary? This isn’t woman’s day. It’s mother’s day. It’s in recognition of being a mother. Having children and raising them. It isn’t everyone has a uterus day.  And as a mother you don’t treat yourself. Your children and your spouse treat you to thank you.

What the hell is society coming too?

I’m going to edit to add, a teacher isn’t a mother, an aunt isn’t a mother. The relationship between child and mother is different. You may celebrate a mother figure (and a teacher who taught you for one year is not that) someone who raised you..etc. but this is about the person YOU appreciate, it’s not about appreciating yourself.
