Should Women Without Kids Receive Mother’s Day Gifts? [POLL]

Over the weekend, I overheard a woman going on and on about what she wanted for Mother’s Day. Diamond earrings, a few hours at the spa and a nice dinner out. Except for one small detail: she didn’t have any kids! I almost fell out of my chair when the lady she was with asked, “Your husband does all that and you guys don’t even have kids?”

Apparently, they have an agreement that because she could theoretically have kids, she should get a Mother’s Day present. Is it just me or is that a little…weird?

I don’t mean to sound exclusionary, but it’s “Mother’s Day” not “Women’s Day,” right? I mean, she has never stayed up all night with a sick kid or had to sacrifice, well, anything because she couldn’t get a sitter. Mother’s Day is all about saying thanks for those sacrifices. Except she hasn’t had to make them. So are those diamond earrings like, “Thanks in advance?”

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a big Mother’s Day spender myself. My mom seriously means it when she says, “All I want for Mother’s Day is for my kids to come home.” A lot of the moms I know are fine with breakfast in bed and a break from the daily routine on Mother’s Day.

I don’t know if I was more struck about how hung up this lady was on Mother’s Day or the fact that she was so hung up on it and didn’t even, in my opinion, recognize what the day itself is all about. What do you think?
