I told her it was "Bitch Stole My Look, Mother's Day edition."
I read a really cool article on the Etsy blog http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2012/the-secret-history-of-mothers-day/ "The Untold History of Mother's Day."
I read it to my mom and boyfriend Mother's Day morning before we even left the house. I was excited to find out that Mother's Day actually was founded by suffragists and pacifists who were not pleased by the way Mother's Day later became commercialized and exploited. Now, this year was especially interesting because I received mother's day wishes, even though I'm not a mom yet. I told my boyfriend weeks ago that I did not want to celebrate it for myself, I'm pregnant yes, but I know nothing about being a mother yet. I have not met my child, and only know how to be pregnant....And then I saw a $50.00 Hello Kitty rice maker and told him to buy it for me, "for Mother's Day."
Mother's Day to me is about spending time with your mother. Not buying her a card "with someone else's words" in it. I hope my feelings for my mother are expressed in my actions and decisions in life. Not what I buy or didn't buy her on one day.
“A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world,” Jarvis said, according to the book Women Who Made A Difference. “And candy! You take a box to Mother — and then eat most of it yourself. A pretty sentiment.”
It is a really cool article. Go read it if you have a chance. On with the show.
