Peanut butter on toast in bed and a chocolate bar. And lots of hugs. And the washing up done with no fuss.

Why? Are we expecting material goods? hmm

Each dc walked into the bedroom with a little bunch of daffodils whilst dh carried the coffeegrin

Get downstairs and there's a bouquet and two naice bottles of wines and cards near the fireplace.

Home made card from eldest from school.

More than happy with my little lot.

A long lie and breakfast in bed. Lovely

I wasn't expecting anything, my homemade card is amazing. But the pressie was a lovely bonus smile

A garden pot plant from DD (4). I don't even have a garden but I love it because she chose it and I'm hoping it lives a long life indoors grin

FinnTheHuman Sun 10-Mar-13 09:10:43

Chilli chocolate, chilli cheese, and a bottle of piña colada to wash them down.

Toast in bed, and I've just sent DS to his dad to fetch me my third cup of tea, while still in bed.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 10-Mar-13 09:14:01

Homemade cards and necklace - daffodils were given to me yesterday. And some new perfume

binger Sun 10-Mar-13 09:14:25

My fav chocs and creams and home made cards, and dh made me a bacon roll smile . Best of all were the kisses and cuddles.

SizzleSazz Sun 10-Mar-13 09:16:23

Homemade cards and tea in bed. Roast chicken and cake promised for later smile

Some nice homemade cards from DD'S.

And a biscuit ds (3yrs) made at nursery last Thursday and it's been sitting a bag he also made. I was not allowed to eat when he bought it home it had to wait til today. The thought was there grin.

They also got me some flowers.

2 bars of chocolate from DH (left here whilst he went out birdwatching hmm)
A "Happy Mother's Day !" and a kiss and hug from DS.
DD made me pancakes with chocolate and banana's yesterday with a cuppa brew - possibly the first one she's ever made me.
So, that was nice ! smile thanks
A slightly odd assortment of blessings, but lots to be thankful for x

I got a sloppy 9.5month olds kiss and a very thoughtful personal card from her smile apparently she wanted to take me on a picnic but the weather has scuppered her plans. Think we are going to have a picnic in the living room later. First Mother's Day has been pretty amazing so far grin

Mrsrobertduvall Sun 10-Mar-13 09:32:38

Chocolate buttons.
And a meltdown from dd about maths gcse.

LoopDeLoops Sun 10-Mar-13 09:33:48

Zilch. For the first time ever, he forgot. Remembered his mum though. hmm

Annianni Sun 10-Mar-13 09:36:35

One shop bought card, one home made card and perfume.

And an extra hour in bed.

Abigail9580 Sun 10-Mar-13 09:38:01

Nothing! It's my first Mother's Day, so I guess he's not had the practice yet!! ( I remembered his mum)

Abigail9580 Sun 10-Mar-13 09:38:47

But happy happy Mother's Day to you all. Mwah mwah xxx

MrsKoala Sun 10-Mar-13 09:39:23

My first Mothers Day. I was only expecting a card but got Game of Thrones dvd (funny that DH really wanted to see that) and a lovely necklace and matching earrings and a really gorgeous card - its amazing what a 6 month old can do grin

However, this was because DH is on a warning after my birthday last month, where i got a card saying Happy Mothers Day and a frying pan confused .

angelinterceptor Sun 10-Mar-13 09:39:50

My DD has been up making my a microwave choc cake and icing it.

Also lovely card from her and my DS.

They also bought me the Skyfall DVD as I am the only person in the family (country) who hasn't seen it yet!

Mugglewhump Sun 10-Mar-13 09:40:35

A handwritten card from Dd 5 " To Mummee, I will do al your jobs toodae, luv Sophie, Georg and James" . A sausage sandwich and cup of tea in bed and my annual mothers day present of a bottle of gin!

Snuggles with my week old baby boy and a kiss from my 22 month old Ds followed by a loud trump!

What more could I want ?

HandMini Sun 10-Mar-13 09:43:18

Two homemade cards from DD1 (nanny - assisted as opposed to DH's doing). A bit of a rough night from poor little DD2 who is only five weeks and has a cold. Looking forward to a day with DH around and going to get him to do all the cooking...I don't care if its toast and omelette as long as I don't have to go in the kitchen.
