    Default question

    so here is my question

    ds' godmother is dh's sister.... she's not a mommy yet not even married or dating (22). Should I give her a mother's day card? DH and I are undecided about this.

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated thanks!

    I wouldn't feel "obligated" but I love to send cards so I probably would (especially to people who least expect it)...maybe make a spin on it by writing "Happy (God)Mother's Day!" Or something like that?

    No, I don't think so. It would only be if you really wanted to.

    I probably wouldn't but that's just me.

    My godmother has no children and I always make it a point to send her a card - it makes her really happy! Of course the circumstances are different...my godmother is 60, lives alone and would have liked to have children if she could have....

    In your situation I think it would be a really sweet gesture that she would probably get a kick out of, but I wouldn't feel obligated. Your SIL would probably never even think about it!

    I would, but I believe that some of the best "moms" do not have children. I didn't have Jamie I had tried for 10 years and mother's day was awful for me, so I always appreciated it very much when my SIL would remember me and give me a "for my aunt" Mother's day card. I like to give babysitters mothers day cards too because they do a mothers job when they mother is not able to be there.

    You certainly don't HAVE to, but what a nice thing to do!

    I wouldn't. But that's me. I use to hold a party for my mom's (3) and birthday's around the same time and I invited my stepsisters b/c it's one of their mom's too! B/c one of my stepsisters had a baby, she got upset b/c I didn't say we were celebrating mother's day for her too....when this was a party I was holding for my mom's! My stepmom had to explain to her that she wasn't my mother! LOL
