My DF was literally the last person to wish me a Happy Mother's Day, and it was as an afterthought. We spent the day with my family, and it was an all around disaster. My family was fighting all day, not one of them cared that I was upset by this (or that my mother was, for that matter.) I was the only person to buy my Mother a card, nobody thought to get me one. Nobody really even said Happy Mother's Day to my Mom either, until after I gave her my gifts.

Luckily my Mom and I did get to pick where we went for dinner.. It's just a shame that turned into a nightmare of my Dad & younger sister fighting, so it left my Mom and I sitting in my car, crying together. I guess free dessert made up for it.

On the bright side, DF bought me a $200 spa gift card to make up for my first Mother's Day being complete and utter crap.

Re: Anyone else disappointed by their husband on Mother's Day?

I'm been told that I'm not his mother so not to expect anything from him. instead I had to spend most of the day with his mother and 3 sils (while mine barely got a phone call from me, b/c she's just not important to him). Its was the 2nd nice day in a row, that I could have spent out in my flower garden. Oh and my children decided to get up at 5:30AM for the 2nd day in a row and they are in ELEMENTARY school!

Re: Anyone else disappointed by their husband on Mother's Day?

Yesterday was my first Mothers' Day and my husband really didn't seem to even acknowledge it. He had to work so I spent the day cleaning and cooking, which stressed me out because I was cooking something he normally makes and couldn't get a hold of him of him until after 1pm to find out how he makes it. I literally pulled it out of the oven then headed out the door to his family's house for dinner.

For Father's Day last year we went to the movies, but I didn't get him a card or anything because I was a little out of it getting used to having a 1-month old! I wasn't expecting much since we aren't big into gift giving for each other, but a card or even just him saying "Happy Mother's Day!" would have been nice.

You deserve better than that. I know easier said than done but I would be saving $ away on the side so I could leave someone who said something like that to me. If he treats you with love and respect all the other days I would stay but would no longer do anything for his bday or for Father's Day.

Re: Anyone else disappointed by their husband on Mother's Day?

I got a dozen roses Friday evening and a card on Sunday... For my DH this was the equivalent to him taking me on a cruise and buying me diamonds.
One thing I quickly learned was his gift giving language was severely delayed. for the first few years we were married I REALLY had to grow a thick skin when it came to gifts. IF he remembered it was never ever let me think of something that will make her feel special or even so much an appropriate practice gift. It was like hey here is a toothbrush cause I noticed the old one was getting worn...

DH asked if we were going to go out (not hey honey lets go out) and then asked if we should use real (checking account) or the "fake" money (credit card) to pay.
