Mother's Day

Mother's day - Schmother's Day

I hate mother's day, never used to but since the miscarriage I do. Tears made me feel a little better but confused the heck out of DH. I was meant to be able to enjoy the day as a mother-to-be, we could have shared a few special 'I know something you don't know' smirks over the family lunch, or we could even have announced our news as we would have been into the second trimester this week.

DH says I shouldn't look backwards. Yeah thanks honey, that makes everything okay! Oh and by the way, thanks for the acknowledgment of all I do for your children! I really must be evil....

You're not alone, I hate it too... for similiar reasons.

I was once told that men and women look at problems differently. Women hear a problem and they listen, try to understand and offer support. Men, treat it like an appliance and try to fix it. So when he says 'don't look backwards', that's an attempt to fix. And all you really need is understanding. I'm sorry, enjoy the cry, I totally get it. And you're not evil, you're human.
