Listen up Mama’s. This is a crazy year and we can’t tell if things are getting better or worse. There’s one thing I CAN tell you … you’re on your own for Mother’s Day.
Your kids aren’t bringing home a cute little heart shaped fridge magnet or a card with their hand prints on it. That’s right, in the chaos of homeschooling you forgot about that Mother’s Day craft and you ain’t getting shit this year. Hubby doesn’t know what day or month it is, you really think he’s getting you a gift? You better bring those pre-pandemic expectations down.
This year Mother’s Day also happens to fall on my birthday. Do you think I’m going to receive two gifts from each resident in this house? No Ma’am. I’m a realist. I’d be lucky if I get a hug and a kiss.
So this is what I propose – we celebrate Mother’s Day 2020 by buying our own damn gifts. I’m talking about loungewear, fuzzy slippers and fancy skin care. We’re staying in and not allowing these forever hungry gremlins to age us. Mother’s Day is going to feel like Groundhog Day, but at least you’ll know that the gift you chose is on its way.
I put together a wish list for myself. If you click through and make a purchase this blog will earn a commission at no additional cost to you.
I hope you can find yourself something nice too because You. Are. Doing. Great.
