“Are you expecting anything for Mother’s Day tomorrow?”
What do I say to that?
“No, there’s no need to celebrate such a silly, made-up day.”
“No, because I know you didn’t get/plan anything for me anyway and we’re just going to fight about it.”
“No, because you never get me anything for Mother’s Day, or my birthday, or our anniversary for that matter, so why would this be any different?”
“It sure would have been nice for you to not even have to ask that question. I like to think I work hard to be a good mom despite my other commitments. What’s wrong with hoping for a little recognition on the one day that is meant for it?”
I just went with a simple “No.”
