Mother's Day Showdown: New Mom vs. MIL 🌺

So, this new mom's first Mother's Day was marred by her MIL's complaints and hurtful comments. 💔 Despite receiving gifts, the MIL never acknowledged the new mom's first Mother's Day. When confronted, the MIL coldly stated that she didn't need to acknowledge her because she's not her mother. 😡 The new mom decided to never spend Mother's Day with her MIL again, but her husband thinks she should just move on. Will this Mother's Day drama ever end? Let's see what people have to say about this situation... 🍿
