There’s no doubt that this year’s Mother’s Day wasn’t exactly your typical Mother’s Day, but we bet most people tried to do at least something to honor mom. Well, one woman found out her hubby wasn’t planning anything, and then he gave her a hard time about feeling bad about it.
The woman shares on Reddit’s “Am I The A-hole” forum that she never expects much from Mother’s Day, but she appreciates little things like a card, or a homemade gift from her kids. While her kids are too little to do something for her themselves, she expected her hubby to step up, but apparently he didn’t.
The woman writes that while putting together orders for her cake and cupcake business her hubby came over and asked her, “so, do I have to celebrate mother’s day for you too?, I mean it’s just a day.’” She shares, “I responded: well now that I know you didn’t mean to do anything then just don’t do anything, just never mind,’” which prompted the husband to call her “dramatic” for “making a big deal about it.”
The mom then felt bad about it and asked folks whether she was wrong. She insists she wasn’t expecting much, noting, “I thought just idk a card from my kids maybe? I feel like I give so much as a mother I wouldn’t mind a day with a nice gesture.”
- Some folks on Reddit thought the OP should cut the hubby some slack considering what’s going on in the world.
- “You’re not wrong in being disappointed,” one person commented. “Maybe he thought it was a bit different this year because of the lockdown?”
- Another added, “It’s true things are different because of lockdown, but amazon gift wraps,” while another noted, “wow. What he did was callous.”
- Finally one pointed out, “It’s not about whether or not he cares, it’s the fact that YOU care,” adding, “Good spouses care about the stuff that is important to their spouse even if it’s something they don’t personally care about.”
