IT began about two weeks ago. ‘Mum, what do you want for Mother’s Day?’ ‘Nothing babes, I’m fine, please stop asking me.’
My lack of sentimentality and hatred of Mother’s Day, which is second only to my birthday on the list of my least favourite days of the year, are probably some of my worst traits as a parent.
But I can’t help it. Mother’s Day sucks.
I love my children. They’re the best things that ever happened to me and gave my life direction when I had none.
But I can’t muster up any enthusiasm on the day that is meant to be “my day”.
