A Mother's Day Marred by Disappointment and Hurt 😢

This new mom's first Mother's Day was meant to be a day of celebration and joy. Instead, it was filled with disappointment and hurt as her partner shrugged off her expectations. Despite her attempts to express her feelings, he insisted it wasn't his job to celebrate her on Mother's Day. The day ended with her cleaning and cooking, while he made excuses. Luckily, her own mom stepped in to save the day, making her feel special. But the hurt and disappointment linger, leaving her unsure of how to feel. Let's see what the internet has to say about this situation...💭
