I will get my Mother-In-Law a card. I don’t know if I’ll be getting my mom anything.

@hecallsmelove:  Always- even if she’s not my mother-in-law anymore. It’s such a simple thing to do that is so meaningful for them.

We give both of our moms a card and a gift.

I got a card for my Mother-In-Law, and Darling Husband is sending her a separate card. Same for my mother, except she’s also getting flowers sent to her office on Friday

We don’t do anything for my mother, but yes, we have lunch and give a card to my Future Mother-In-Law.

Card and gift for both.  He’s writing the card for his mom and we’re both signing it, I’m writing the card for my mom and we’re both signing it.

We never really discussed it this year since this will be our first Mother’s Day as a married couple. I will sign his name to my mother’s card, but whether he does for his mom’s card, I couldn’t care less honestly.

Ill get her a card from us, but shell know its from me as it will come from where I am living (DH is living across country). That and I dont think Darling Husband has sent cards on his own in the past where I have not intervened. 

Ill also probably send a token something. I am just not sure what yet.

FH never used to get her anything but I always get a card/gift from us. This year we’re giving her one of our engagement pics that she puts on the wall of each kid and spouse and some flowers.

@hecallsmelove:  We do “from us” card/gift on both. Fiance usually gets my mom a little potted plant or something too, since we live in the same town and actually see her for Mother’s Day.

Ugh, we always have to go out to eat on this day, and there is always drama because my fiance’s brother’s wife can ONLY spend mother’s day with her OWN parents.  So we actually “celebrated” yesterday.  I just show up at dinner and sometimes I bring a card, but what are you supposed to write?  Good job giving birth four times!

In my family, growing up and still, we’ve never done ANYTHING for mother’s day.  My parents don’t celebrate “Hallmark holidays”.  So it’s so weird to me that there is so much drama surrounding it.

I usually buy all the cards and write/sign them for the both of us. If he wanted to write his Moms then that would be fine but he always asks me to do it. everyone is probably used to it by Now. I do ask him if there’s anything specific he would like it to say though

However, I don’t understand the point of a card from the both of you AND then a card from one of you.

I sent my mom flowers & will sign her card from both of us.  She’ll know it’s mostly from me, but it’s the thought that counts ;].  I work 11am-8pm on Mother’s Day so I will probably have lunch & margarits with my mom at some point this week!

Darling Husband will probably take his mom out to dinner & what he does or doesn’t do with a card or whatever for her, I couldn’t really care less.  Sue me..
