I know this might sound silly and shallow but I have just had the worst 1st Mothers Day. My partner made no effort at all. I was the one who had to get up at 7am with our 8 month old son while my partner slept until midday. I got no card, present or even a cup of coffee! I spent the day cleaning as he was too busy on the computer all day. Like I said, I know it's petty compared to other problems but I just feel so hurt and unappreciated. I am living in Turkey with my partner who is Turkish so I have no family around me to help with the baby and my partner works long hours 6/7 days a week. I just thought for one day he could give me a break, make me a cup of tea and let me relax!! Instead I have spent the day in tears. Was I asking too much?
