I have been a single parent for the last 7 years. That means the last 7 birthdays,Christmas & Mother's day. My sister feels sorry for me cause I daon't have anybody to spend special days with & I correct her & tell yes I do I have my kids. She doesn't understand how I can be happy with the home made stuff my kids get me every year for these holidays. So she takes my kids (every year) shopping for my birthday,Christmas & Mother's day she says it's because she doesn't want Mother's day to be just another day to me but I'm a single parent so Mother's day is just another day. I mean my kids give me gifts but than things go right back to normal kids fighting,house needing cleaned,running errands. I guess I just don't get it & my sister makes it worse cause I feel like she pities me & I don't believe I deserve to be pitied. Does anybody else have this problem?
