My husband wants to leave town on my first Mother's day. Should I be upset?

This year will be my first Mother's Day and my husband would like to go on a trip to Las Vegas that weekend. The thought of this makes me sad. I have waited my whole life to have a Mother's Day and now it will just be me and my 9 month old. Also, around that time I will be 24 weeks pregnant with our second child. Am I being overly emotional about this or would it bother you? He says he will make it up to me on a different weekend, but to me it is selfish of him to leave me. I go back and forth in my head trying to decide if I am making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Hmmmm - I don't think that I would worry too much. It's only mothers day. I see mothers day as a time when your kids make a fuss of you when they are old enough - not something your hubby would necessarily be involved in when you still have a baby.

But make sure you get a pretty good deal when he makes up for going away!
