I have been a single parent for the last 7 years & I don't really understand the big deal about Mother's day. My kids are 7 & 11 & yes they bring me hand made gifts & my sister takes them shopping for me every year but than it goes back to being just another day with fighting kids,house needing to be cleaned, yard work needing to be done. What is the big deal? Is it like Valentines day just for couples? Maybe it is because my kids are so young that I don't get it. I am starting to beleive my sister pities me because I don't have a husband to take my kids for a little while or to plan this big special day for me & I don't beleive I deserve to be pitied. Does anybody else have this problem?
