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.

1. THIS MUG
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.
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.
For THOSE days.
7. Emergency Underwear
So I can be lazy sometimes.
Because they look nicer than my real feet.
9. This book.
Because I really wanna know why.
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.
Awesome mother’s day gifts, huh?
What’s on your list?
