Note to self: Mother's Day is coming
In a Mumsnet survey, a third of respondents said they had to remind their partners when Mother's Day was coming up – doubting that their other halves would remember otherwise. Over a quarter of respondents (28%) said that their partner had previously forgotten to buy them a card or gift, or to organise cards or gifts from the children.
And it's not just a gentle nudge about their own cards – the majority of mums are also taking responsibility for making sure their partner's mother doesn't get forgotten either. More than half of respondents (57%) said they'd bought the card for their partner's mother on more than one occasion, if not every year.
