to expect a mother's day gift from DC...

...even though even though I am no longer with their father?
I know he's not obliged to do anything, but it would of been nice if he had even just got a card or something small. DC are 3 and 16 months, so can't do anything by themselves.
He was with them all day today, but won't be seeing them again before sunday.
I do mine and his share of looking after DDs, he is moving to another country in a week, and would like a bit of appreciation for what I am doing.
I know IprobablyABU, but I think he is a little bit too.

YANBU. I know parents who have been split up nd they still get one another things from the DC.
It's part of parenting...teaching them how to give gifts.
If I were you I would get him something from them for Birthday or Fathers Day...when they start school they'll ask him themselves.
Till then bake a cake together with the DC on Sunday...buy flowers....tell them its a special day.
It's not pointless...i

YANBU, is always nice to feel appreciated and especially when you probably know lots of mums who will have had someone help their kids arrange something or make a card etc. Still, why not just do something fun with the DCs on the day then treat yourself to a bottle of wine/box of chocs (from the kids you know they'd want you to have them)
