Mothers Day

(12 Posts)

How would you feel? DH gave me a present with bits and bobs of chocolate bath bombs from lush and a tube of hand creme from molton brown. He knows I love MB. However when we went to his mums later in the day he gave his mum a huge Molten Brown gift box. Am I being churlish in comparing gifts? Thanks

I think this is why I now loathe mothers day. It has become so commercial, competitive and unhappy.

I don't know what else to say, really. I hope you had a decent day regardless.

At least you got something. YABU. He also took note of what you liked which was thoughtful. Read some of the other posts on here tonight and you'll think you've married a Prince! Enjoy your smellies. smile

Are you his mother?

At least you got something. I didn't even get a card.

You are not his mother.

I can't believe that a grown woman compares presents like this.

What?! So the mother of his children, the woman who went throught pregnancy and birth so he gets his "I am a father" badge, deserves less than his mum?

They deserve the same at least surely? I am shocked that it isnt obvious to anyone that he clearly views his own mother as more worthy and deserving that his childrens mother!

And as for "at least you got something cos I didnt", your issue is with your own OH, dont take it out on the OP!

Get over yourself! Massively churlish. Molton Brown is overpriced tat anyway.

Bogeyface Mon 31-Mar-14 01:16:25

/Yes Creepy and his mother was deemed worthy of more over priced tat than the OP.

Why should she get over herself precisely?

Yeah, you're being churlish. But you know that right?

I don't think it's fair to refer an OP to other posts to make them put things into perspective. It's quite judgemental IMO.

I have read those other threads and some are heartbreaking - but bangles is feeling a little upset by her DH's actions.

OP has posted here asking how others would feel, you can be less direct in responses.

bangles - write it off or speak to your DH and explain how you feel. You could always treat yourself to a big box of MB as I'm sure it will all be reduced from Monday smile

FWIW, I think MB smells lovely!
