Mother’s Day

Today it’s Mother’s Day in Sweden. For a long time we didn’t really celebrate either Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, thinking it was merely a commercial event. However, in later years we have begun to celebrate even if just a little. Some chocolate, something nice for dinner etc. It also got me thinking about Mother’s Day. To me it’s almost exclusively associated with my own mother and to some extent my (maternal) grandmother. It’s been very difficult to learn to identify with being a Mother on Mother’s day. I don’t have any trouble being mom to my twins, but to think of me as someone who can be celebrated on Mother’s Day, has been really difficult. Oh, well, maybe I’ll find it easier in the future.
