Thanks for all your comments on my Mother’s Day post!
I just thought, though, that maybe I was too harsh. I may have given the impression that my husband isn’t good to me on Mother’s Day, which isn’t true. I arrived home today from my road trip to find flowers and a card and chocolates, and (and this is the best part), he and the kids had cleaned up the entire house! So he is amazing.
It’s just that the kids don’t necessarily get me anything unless he arranges it, and he doesn’t always think of it. He does stuff for me himself, but I’d sort of like stuff from the kids. Of course, that’s not really his fault. They’re at the age where they could figure it out for themselves, too.
In fact, maybe I’m being too passive aggressive. If I want something, maybe I should just tell them? Do you think? Instead of just complaining when I don’t get what I want? It’s not really fair to expect people to read my mind.
So I shall tell the girls tomorrow morning that I expect something on Sunday. We’re taking my niece out shopping all day anyway, so they have a chance to get something. And then it’s not Keith’s problem anymore.
