i may be being unresonable, went out last nite for a friends b/day was home by 10 both dc still up, fair enough no school today they are 10 n 12.they had a sleepover each friday so were tired.
i got woken this morning by dc 1 alarm she was already up nd downstairs,i was shattered so not happy, come down to back room full of toys dvd wii games all left out from last nite as dh didnt bother toget them to tidy up
so i put it all away
no mothersday card nothing, by now i feel very sad and tell dh i am fed up he laughed which made me cry
they have gone out now to sports session still nothing.i know i houldnt expect anything but it is mothers day
i am ironing now work full time we have zero external childcare and no help around house.dh does help with stuf.i just though on mothers day i might have got some kind of way to show they apreciate me.

Stop being such a martyr. There was no need for you to come down despite being woken up, just roll over and go back to sleep. There was no need for you to tidy all their toys away, they could have done it later. Why didnt you just make yourself a cuppa, go back to bed, read the papers etc. They've gone out so you've got some peace and quiet. Why on earth are you now ironing. Jeez woman, stop being such a wet blanket.

little ducks... for you, ive been there... not on mothering sunday fortunately.
the trick is, clear a clean path to the sofa../chair/bed (depending which room) then shout loudly to oh that they can't come in yet as there is still poo.... whilst enjoying a coffee/chocolate/wine (delete according to time of day/amount of poo) you clear the rest up afterwards.

"It's a hallmark holiday ffs."
Actually, no, that's "Father's Day." Mother's Day is "Mothering Sunday," which is a religious day. Not much help if you're not religious, but since when has that stopped any of us celebrating Christmas?
And I agree with Trifle. Stop doing the bloody ironing and sit down with the papers and a cup of coffee.

YANBU - that is completely unacceptable. Treat yourself and have a rest but tell them they need to do better next year! It's not about 'things' - though they are nice and I am v pleased with my flowers and little jug - but it's about them bothering to do something.
