... does not mean he 'gets' Mothering Sunday instead of me, right? PIL disagree... hmm

Turniphead1 Sun 10-Mar-13 10:32:26

Er no way! That's illogical. And insulting to you and to him.

uniqueatlast Sun 10-Mar-13 10:32:55

Erm, he gets father's day surely?

Arithmeticulous Sun 10-Mar-13 10:32:57

Because you are not a "full time mother?" hmm

Sidge Sun 10-Mar-13 10:33:31

Err no, he's not a mother.

He'll get Father's Day. Because he's, like, a father!

BanjoPlayingTiger Sun 10-Mar-13 10:33:33

No! He gets Father's day on accout of him being, you know, a Father.

LizaRose Sun 10-Mar-13 10:34:28

Do the DC call him Mum?

SminkoPinko Sun 10-Mar-13 10:34:35

[Shock] angry Tell them to fuck off.

YouTheCat Sun 10-Mar-13 10:34:38

Buy him a nice pinny and a book of recipes. grin

SkinnybitchWannabe Sun 10-Mar-13 10:34:59

Rubbish. Regardless of him being a SAHD you gave birth to your dc!
PIL are talking bollocks.
Enjoy your day.

LoopDeLoops Sun 10-Mar-13 10:35:04

Grim, isn't it?

LoopDeLoops Sun 10-Mar-13 10:35:45

In fairness to PIL, it was Grandma-in-law who suggested it.

FiveGoMadInDorset Sun 10-Mar-13 10:38:23

And will you get Fathers day then?

Catchingmockingbirds Sun 10-Mar-13 10:38:25

That's what Father's Day is for!

Nagoo Sun 10-Mar-13 10:39:16

Are you going to get Father's Day hmm? I've never heard such bollocks. Sorry Grandma-In-Law hmm

ENormaSnob Sun 10-Mar-13 10:39:49

So do you get fathers day instead then? Y'know being the provider and all?

They are talking shit.

Iaintdunnuffink Sun 10-Mar-13 10:40:10

How odd, he has Father's Day.

Sounds like Grandma-in-law is having a little dig. She's old, smile, nod, ignore.

Montybojangles Sun 10-Mar-13 10:40:40

It depends if you are seeing it as the american commercialised mothers day, or the original Christian mothering Sunday.
The traditional mothering Sunday was for those working in service (servants) to go home to their mother church with their family, so both men and women went mothering.

GirlWiththeLionHeart Sun 10-Mar-13 10:40:45

So do mums who work 'get' Father's Day? hmm

verytellytubby Sun 10-Mar-13 10:46:41


thegreylady Sun 10-Mar-13 10:54:47

A man is not a mother! I dont see any way round that grandma-in law!

VBisme Sun 10-Mar-13 11:27:35

Totally ridiculous of course you get Mother's Day.
Grandma is old and foolish.

JaxTellerIsMyFriend Sun 10-Mar-13 11:31:47

Grandma in law is out of line.

Mothers day is for Mothers, Fathers day is for fathers.

Grandparents day is just made up load of bollocks. The end

catgirl1976 Sun 10-Mar-13 11:35:00


He get's fathers day

Your PILs are odd. And possibly horrible sad

Losingexcessweight Sun 10-Mar-13 11:35:27

This made me laugh!

So your only a mother if you stay at home full time?
