Sunday is Mother’s Day and if you’re lucky, you’ll walk away with a macaroni necklace, a card or two, and hopefully just a tad less responsibility that day. If your partner gets you gift, there’s like a 25% chance that it will be something you really want. Unless you left explicit instructions, in which case— good for you! I always like being surprised and then the surprise is— MY HUSBAND DOESN’T UNDERSTAND ME AT ALL.

It’s the thought that counts, right?

The people who really know what you want are your mom friends. They know that you have a thing for oversized bracelets, love anything with a cat on it, and that you really want to spend Mother’s Day all by yourself.
