Ok, so I had the best Mother's Day ever, until about 5 minutes ago.
I am a single mom, dating, but till August, living alone with my three children. When I woke up this morning, my kids had breakfast made for me, pancakes, muffins, fruit, shake, it was amazing, coming from my 13 and 11 year old. Supper was great and everything in between.
My boyfriend, who also has three kids, is a widow. His wife died almost 3 years ago. I love him to death, and I understand all the feelings, days etc.
Anywho, I did not hear from him at all today. He usually will send me an email or call, even on his bad days, but nothing today....until a few minutes ago. "not a good day, i have nothing to talk about, going to bed." That's it.
So, I am afraid, afraid of what is going to happen next year. My kids always do stuff for me, and I want to be happy and excited about it, but thinking about being one big family, doesn't make me too excited about mother's day anymore. Should I feel bad for being happy, and should my kids feel bad for doing stuff for me when their mom is gone? I don't want to stop what we do, we have fun, but it is definitely going to feel weird.
Any advice out there?
