I read an article yesterday that says we’re going to spend about 51 cents less on Mother’s Day stuff this year than we did last year.
But we’re still going to spend an average of $138.63.
I love my mom. I love her a lot. Really.
But I would not live to send another Mother’s Day card if I spent that much for Mother’s Day stuff, because my mom would kill me.
If I neglected to recognize the day entirely, she’d be very sad — and rightfully so. But $138.63? What happened to a nice card, some flowers or a plant (perhaps), a call or visit?
How do Mother’s Day gifts go in your household? What do you do to celebrate your mothers? How do your children celebrate their mothers? For you fathers out there, how do you celebrate the day for your wife?
I can’t believe I’m the only one in shock that we, on average, spend that much on Mother’s Day.
But I can’t believe how much we spend on Christmas presents, either, so maybe I’m the odd one.
