Exactly. I know he still cares about me, and it's not like the money I was making did much anyway. I only made maybe 600/month. But, who knows. He's a guy, he's weird.

I'd go way overboard on Father's day. Gifts, cards, a special breakfast, sex.... I'd completely overdo it, and maybe at least he'd feel like a heel.

He won't
I have a friend who goes through this every year. Her husband will tell her that it's just another day to him, nothing special and be a jerk to her (because the attention is not focused on him). But on Father's Day she better be going all out or he freaks out.

I started treating my ex the way he treats me for birthdays and holidays. Our daughter is 2 years old and I gave up on getting him anything crazy from her because he doesn't even think about me at all. Last year I ended up in the bathroom crying my face off for Mother's Day. This year he at least said Happy Mother's Day and acknowledged that our daughter is

Re: Terrible Mothers day!

Did your husband clone himself and move into my house??
My husband did nothing, except get a card, which he left on the counter. Never said a word...

I really don't think him forgetting/not doing anything for me for mothers day means, I shouldn't continue to have children with him. He works really hard all week, and yes he probably was tired. But still, thanks for sticking up for me.
no prob mama there are days when I think DH acts horrible and I vent about it a little but truly he is a wonderful man. And honestly, there are probably days where I act like an inconsiderate twit but he still loves me too. Certainly doesn't mean we shouldn't be together. ANd I never like to miss an opportunity to stick up for someone, we all need a little extra support sometimes

Re: Terrible Mothers day!

I have heard that 'you're not my mom' stuff before. I think it's so incredibly rude to say that on a day when mother's in general are supposed to be honored!

As for the passive-aggressive over the top Father's day approach...I agree that most men wouldn't get that. I don't think my dh would, and then I would just be even more po'd and hurt!

Hugs, mama. But let your dh know that next year you expect something to honor all you do, cause you may not be HIS mama, but your HIS baby's mama...and that counts.
