Why does a box of chocolates show any more evidence of recognition than a card?

First Mother's Day is weirdly emotional and odd. Your DC is too small to do anything so it becomes a strange weight of responsibility on your partner to show how much your being a mother means to him. It's not great. You've done such a massive thing, it's difficult to quantify with a day.

Just chalk it up to expectations and wait a few years. The sticky pictures, cards with 'love you mummy' written on them, and the very poorly made breakfasts will make up for all this.

So its my first mothers day and all i got was a card! I am feeling dissapointed but pretending all is fine to not ruin the day. I did drop hints about a present n also said to keep within £10 budget. Wud hve been happy with a mum mug or box of chocs even. Just something to show a little recognition and effort. Anyway nevermind. Dh did offer to take me shopping at 7pm once he saw images of sisters mothers day display but i said no as it was more about the thought not a mad rush shop. Rant over n out.
