Seems to be quite a few of them.

Be happy that you are a mother. Remember you are not your dh or dp's mum.

I was happy with the card that my 5 year old dd made at school.

It's just another day and as my hubby said you are a mother all year round, what is 1 day?

I know it feels nice to be treated or spoilt but seriously don't complain if things were not up to your expectations.

Oh fgs! Theyre done now. It was yesterday. Its over. Stop stirring the shitpot.

And youre saying nothing new.

Agree. Also the one's where they aren't a dm yet or they've lost their dm. I think both situations are incredibly sad and yes would be hard to deal with but the day unfortunately won't be cancelled and there is only so many threads you can say yanbu to be upset/sad/angry etc.

Why does it bother you so much? Nobody is forcing you to read the threads.
Who are you or anyone to tell people what they should or shouldn't be feeling?
If they are such an issue for you why did you start a MD thread?
Sometimes people feel sad or let down by those closest to them for whatever reason. Why shouldn't they feel that just because you and others are satisfied with your day/couldn't give a shit?

Cutecat78 Mon 07-Mar-16 19:40:57

Are we not allowed seasonal threads anymore? hmm

Don't worry, we have Easter next... All those parents moaning that someone dared to buy their child a chocolate egg..... The horror!

YANBU. But it's the same every year. Same with Halloween. We need a Seasonal Petty Gripes topic.

Just wait till Christmas, you will spontaneously combust at the "AIBU not to lie to my children" threads!

ghostyslovesheep Mon 07-Mar-16 19:45:45

oh yes evil MIL buys CHOCOLATE for her grandchildren shocker

then Fathers Day moans

Then yay summer hols / fuck summer hols

Yay back to school - bloody uniform, rules, school run

Halloween - 'organised begging'

Christmas - who's parents, 'to want Christmas on our own' MIL spent money on GC shocker

and so it rolls

Oh I love the Easter egg threads, someone's toddler gets given a tiny chocolate heart by a grandmother and the parents totally lose their shit that it wasnt a fur free organically made low fat no sugar vegetable based treat!

Haha waiting eagerly for them smile

Seasonal Petty Gripes sounds fun. I could moan about all the winter seasonal stuff there.
