Did you forget Mother’s Day?

If you forgot to get a gift for Mother’s Day, may I suggest donating in your mom’s/loved person’s name to any of the following charities…

Oxfam (helps people worldwide)

Post Partum Support International-helps women suffering from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, including postpartum depression, the most common complication of childbirth. We also work to educate family, friends and healthcare providers so that moms and moms-to-be can get the support they need and recover

    I didn’t forget, but I hate Mother’s Day. For various reasons. Top on the list: (1) It’s sexist. (2) It involves an obligation of gift/card/flower-giving. (3) The day is arbitrarily determined, and it’s ONLY ONE DAY. As if you can call your mom on Mother’s Day and then ignore her for the rest of the year. And if you pay attention to her all year except forget Mother’s Day, you’re a horrible child. WTF? I believe that birth mothers should be honored on the day they gave birth (or miscarried, such that they get more days depending on how many pregnancies they’ve had). This has the added benefit that children are unlikely to forget their own birthdays. Parents in general (adoptive, male, female, etc.) could be honored on a particular day, or could have a similar system (be honored on the day they became parents to each child, whether by birth or adoption or whatnot).
