We have the thread for what WS did or didn't do for Mother's Day.
So I want to know what you all did with your kids.
My twin DD's had a Mother's Day concert at school on Friday. There were 2 shows and I stayed for both.
My DD#1 played the piano.
Their class sang "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion. They had all decorated hearts for the end of the song and I always feel so lucky that I get 2 hearts from my twins.
I was teary eyed. So proud.
On Saturday night we had a sleep over in my room. They slept on matresses on the floor. DD#2 set her alarm to wake up her sister and make me breakfast in bed. It was fun to hear them whispering trying not to "wake" me up. I was awake of course.
I got toast and jam, yogurt, juice and a box of chocolates.
Later my sister's took them to an amusement park for a few hours so I could catch up on watching shows on my PVR.
We had takeout later for dinner and their grandparents (his parents) came over for a little while. His father always thanks me for his grandchildren in his broken english.
It was great!

My 7 yo organized and orchestrated everything. The week leading up to Mother's Day, she wanted to brainstorm activities for Mother's Day. If anything comes out of our separation and eventual divorce, is the beauty of the child that we created. I cry slowly as I write because my WS and I went through our separation agreement this morning.
I came down to the living room on Sunday morning, not expecting anything, and I see that there are some decorations up and my daughter was decorating the chair for me to sit in. WS spouse was making brunch as she was very attentively decorating. Then we went to play miniature golf - her suggestion. The whole day was very nice - beautiful weather, relaxed outing. Even WS said it was fun.

My son and I have a tradition of going to the movies together on Mother's day. We've been doing this since he was about 4 and he's 16 now. Nothing but fun and lots of popcorn. I so enjoy it.
If you want them to quit stabbing you in the back, then quit handing them the knife.

I picked up my boyos from their dad's house and they took me to a 1950s-style diner for lunch, then mini-golfing, then we spent hours picking out flowers and planting them in my flowerbed (when I moved in last summer, it was a big weed bed!), then a dinner of pizza on the couch while we watched Rio.
It was wonderful!

My teenagers took me out to eat at a nice Chinese restaurant and paid for my meal. Then we took a walk down by the river on our community nature trail. Then the kids gave me a can crusher. I recycle aluminum cans and don't have a crusher and always stomp them. They didn't want me to hurt my feet. LOL.
Then they returned to their preferred lives of computing and social networking.

My mom always told me
A son is your son until he takes him a wife,
but your daughter is a daughter all her life.
I think it plays out with our son. He always did nice things for me on Mother's day until he got married. Now, his wife's birthday is very near Mother's day and they usually celebrate that on Friday night, his in-laws live with them so they celebrate her mom's and her mother's day together on Saturday. Church is on Sunday. I tend to get a Happy Mother's day written on Facebook. Oh well.

My daughter is away working an internship. She called me and sent me flowers.
My son sent me flowers, went bowling with me (Beat me two out of three), watched the Survivor finale and ate pizza. I thoroughly enjoyed my day.
I called my mother and MIL to wish them Happy Mother's Day and sent out a flurry of Happy Mother's Day texts to my friends and received them in return.
Really great Mother's Day. Only thing that could have made it better is having my lovely daughter home. (But I'm so happy for her about the internship that I wouldn't really have wanted her to miss it)

There came a point when it was too painful to love him, so I stopped.

My youngest DS (10) brought me some treasures from the school mothers day stall (funds courtesy of my parents). My oldest DS (14) asked to go to the shops and brought me a small gift card from a store with his own money. Oh and I got cards from my kids addressed to the best mother in the world!
We went and visited my mother and xwh mother & grandmother and then the boys and I went out for lunch.
Love my kids
Best thing I gained in my divorce - my freedom.
