What I want on Mother’s Day

If you are a guy and you found this post by Googling “Awesome Mother’s Day gifts for my wife because I love her so much”, you are the man. Carry on.

However, if you are a mother/wife and you found this post by Googling “What I think my family should get me to make this overly tired, sleep deprived, batshit crazy mother happy on the ONLY holiday made for moms” hoping that your family members will stumble upon your search history on the computer, you are not alone sistah. You are not alone.

Go make yourself your 4th cup of coffee and come back here. It’s too early for wine.

You have to understand that sometimes our family members, especially those that we call husbands, can be lazy when it comes to special occasions. Let’s be honest, a full time job, parenting wild kids and having a crazy wife can make things hectic.

I am not saying we resign to this “reality” because we should not. Sometimes, we just need to whack them on the head give them a little reminder.

Since it’s almost Mother’s Day, I came up with a list of things that I want to receive from the Mister V. I’m sure he is bound to see this because 1. I subscribed him to my blog and 2. I will post this on his Facebook wall and 3. I will leave this page open on the computer screen until he gets the hint.

You can come up with your own list too or you can just piggy back on mine.

You’re welcome.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas


Thinking about Vodka alone makes me happy. But a mug that will make people think I’m slugging liquor at 10am is considered a bling in the domestic world. I want this.

2. Adult sippy cups.

This one is for those times when I’m REALLY slugging liquor at 10am. My kids are smart but sometimes I like to pretend that I can fool them.

3. Wonder Mom Apron.

For us women who rely on optical illusion for curves.

4. This cow doing a head stand.

Most of you know that I am a frustrated yogi. If the cow can do it, so can this mom! Show a little support will yah!


5. Prescription Mug.

For my daily dose of sanity.

6. THIS.

For THOSE days.

7. Emergency Underwear

So I can be lazy sometimes.

8. Slippers

Because they look nicer than my real feet.

9. This book.

Because I really wanna know why.

and finally…

10. Glowing Shoelaces

This one is not for me but for my husband. In case he runs away from me in the middle of the night.

11. And this stunning Mother’s Heart Music Box from The Bradford Exchange will surely melt any mother’s heart.

    After study a couple of of the weblog posts on your website now, and I really like your approach of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website checklist and will be checking again soon. Pls try my web page as effectively and let me know what you think.

  2. this link says:

    This is really fascinating, You are a very professional blogger. I have joined your feed and sit up for searching for extra of your fantastic post. Additionally, I’ve shared your site in my social networks!

  3. my charisma condos says:

    I do love the way you have framed this specific situation plus it does offer me some fodder for thought. Nevertheless, through just what I have personally seen, I just hope as other feedback pile on that folks stay on point and not get started upon a tirade of the news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this fantastic point and whilst I do not necessarily agree with this in totality, I respect your point of view.

    Very interesting details you have noted, appreciate it for putting up. “Never call an accountant a credit to his profession a good accountant is a debit to his profession.” by Charles J. C. Lyall.

  5. Choosing says:

    I am curious: did you get any of this? I got some arts and craft thingy older one made at school (although he forgot to give it to me until noon). And later husband bought some flowers (after realising it was mother’s day…)… 😉

  6. Tiffany says:

    So Cool! I love the nugs the most…espcially the ‘you’ve been poisoned’ one…I think that’s one I may let my Hubby borrow…LMBO

  7. Mars M. says:

    Fun list!!! Since I am eligible for a Mother’s Day gift next year pa, I’m still convincing my husband to get me a push present instead! I should make a list, too–but I’m thinking mostly diamonds! Bwahaha!

  8. Maureen says:

    Definitely want that “You have been poisoned” plate! One Mother’s Day, one of the boys sent me a Mother’s Day card, handwritten, on the inside of an empty case of beer cardboard wrapper. Truly, the thought that counted there ha ha ha.
    So nice to find your blog through #SITSShare

  9. Terri Fites says:

    Loved the plate and the underwear. With those underwear, we could really cut back on how often I have to do laundry!

  10. Rea says:

    Bahahaha! I’d love to have that adult sippy cup and those slippers! 😀

    Mothers’ Day is 11 and my husband’s birthday is 12. So it’s always like that — double celebration. I’ll give him cash to buy me a gift or he gives me cash to buy him a gift or we use my credit card to pretend we still have money! LOL

  11. Kim says:

    Just hand me the mugs and I’ll be a happy girl. I gotta have a place for that 20th cup of coffee, after all.

    Hey, is it just me or is the room spinning? Hehe.

  12. Kate @ Did That Just Happen? says:

    Men have nipples because we are all female until the Y chromosome kicks in!

    Love these!! I want the vodka mug!!

  13. My Inner Chick says:

    —Haaaaa. This is fun.

    I send Mr. Liverpool links for my gifts or who the heck knows what the dude would get me!!


  14. wandering jouster says:

    numbers 3 and 10 will be my pick! the glowing shoelaces will be perfect for my night running, but for a change i think i will ONLY be wearing that wonder woman apron instead of the usual running attire. 🙂 🙂

    you are a genius, missus v. !

    • jhanis says:

      Yes! The glowing shoes is perfect for you! I still can’t get over your 80k! Gah! and the apron will surely make shine some more! 😀

  15. Cate B says:

    Hahaha – well done! Know what I want? No body near me except my husband. Peace and quiet. A romp with the dogs.

    But I do like the Wonder Woman Apron!

  16. Bronwyn Joy says:

    I definitely want the glowing shoes (I feel bad about the wine… I didn’t realise it was too early…) I love the poison mug but I already have a good enough grasp on the men/nipples question (basically all human beings are female-form by default at conception – it’s only the influence of testosterone due to the Y chromosome that makes the gonads turn into testicles instead of ovaries etc etc etc but the nipple development isn’t influenced either way until puberty).

    But I’m sure they have other stuff in the book.
