Yesterday was mother’s day. We all have mothers and I had a very happy day celebrating mother’s day with my MIL yesterday. In England mother’s day is in March so I celebrated my mum’s then.
But how do you feel from a childfree perspective? We all have mothers who I believe in most cases we love and wish to celebrate/recognize. We also have friends who are mothers and probably celebrate with them.
Having said that, it can be hard for the childfree as once again motherhood is praised as many things – from the hardest job in the world to the most important job in the world. And what about the single fathers bringing up children? I saw one mention of them probably meaning they get their day on Father’s Day, right?
I’m curious – what is Mother’s Day when you are childfree? Does it give you angst? Does it make you feel ‘invisible?’ Do you feel it’s overhyped or not recognized enough? Another Hallmark Holiday? Or do you jump in and enjoy and celebrate all the mothers in your life?
