My very first mother's day was, a bit anticlimactic.
It was a nice calm day and the baby behaved beautifully, so that was good.
A good friend bought me flowers and a card specific for 'first mom's day'. That was incredibly thoughtful.
My mom got me a gift certificate to a store I don't really shop at that is closer to her house than mine. And my sister never called at all.
I told my friend that I was a little disappointed in my mother. Her response was that no one even mentioned her first mother's day. Not her mother, father, HUSBAND! She thought I should be grateful that it was noted at all.
And now I am.
