    Auntie needs everyone to shut up about Mother’s Day

    May 9, 2008

    It starts. Mother’s Day is around the corner and suddenly everyone feels the need to quantify what a mom is worth and to worship at her altar. I used to think that Mother’s Day is bunk and that we should be worshiped on a daily basis, but let’s be honest here. At least we get one day a year. So we are tortured because invariably the kids will get sick or be cranky or fight and no one will properly perform and no one will get the memo that if Mother’s Day is about mothers, then why the hell are we spending it with our children, like we do the other 364 days of the year.

    And then there are my child-free friends. I don’t even like to bring Mother’s Day up because I know how annoying it can be for the people without kids. Either by choice or by circumstance, it’s still annoying. I remember when I was single and people would wish me “Happy Mother’s Day.” Personally, I thought it was odd. It didn’t really offend me. I thought it was just weird.

    What do you think?

    So, in honor of all my girls who will be tortured by Mother’s Day, I planned to give you the latest in hilarious tees from Baby Brewing…

    Auntie Needs a Cocktail

    I have them. I just can’t get them up on Baby Brewing due to technical problems whereby I am tortured. So if you want one and you just can’t wait, go over and order a MNAC shirt in the size you want (they are the same font in the same size) and put it in the comments that you want an AUNTIE shirt instead. Available in black or brown, s,m,l,xl,2xl and in women’s sizes in black (16-18, 20-22, 24-26, 28-30) and also in black and brown tanks in s,m,l,xl, 2xl. We are calling it the ghetto rollout. But you girls deserve a little something for the crappy weekend too. WOOHOO!!

      Love it Kristen – great idea. My sister was childless for so long and never shared that they were having fertility problems until they finally adopted a little boy from Korea 3 years ago. Meanwhile I squeezed out 3 of my own during that time. Talk about salt in the wound. (Her wound of course.)

      I never get why anyone other than my kids and husband and maybe my mom wish me a happy mother’s day. Seriously. Not a big deal day. Whatevs.

      I had my first child when I was still a child. No one EVER mistakenly wished me a premature Mother’s Day. 🙂

      Love the Auntie idea. As long as I can pronouce it “Aaaunntie” rather than “Anty.”

      And thanks for giving us enough time to use this as a Godmother’s Day gift…

      Does the mom to 4-legged kids count? I think so and if you disagree, shut your pie hole.

      When wished a Happy Mother’s Day I usually say same to you (even if they’re 8), thank you or laugh.

      My mom is the greatest and I can’t wait to spend some time with her tomorrow! She blessed me with so much and all of my “goodness” I attribute to her. As for the rest of me … well, I just ignore it.

      My father, who has 3 grandchildren already, wished me a Happy Mother’s Day yesterday. That has to go down as THE strangest thing he has ever said to me. Thanks, Dad. As if the weekend weren’t already crappy enough.

      I am honored! I never inspired an actual tshirt before! I will wear it proudly!

      Just found out my 13th niece / nephew is due in December so this is most wonderful timing! Thanks, Kristen!

      When I was still teaching, and before I became a parent, I had a family give me two gifts that year:
      1) a Halloween gift (huh?)
      2) a Mother’s day bracelet

      Odd. Yes, odd.
