Surely you would know your mother well enough to know she wouldn't get you something good?
Get her a cheap gift, and go on the cruise yourself. But first be sure to return the oven mitts she gives you for some tip money on the cruise. Then send her photos of your nice, relaxing vacation.
"return the cruise tickets and get her something cheap" Oh god, Christmas has been commercialised.. I remember when it was about the giving of gift's, not expecting to recieve a gift of the same price proportion.
Oh quit it, Kio. Don't even act like you'd be as happy as a puppy with two peters if you were in OP's exact position. You'd be a little pissed too. "Oh my GOD! Oven mitts!? How did you know!? And all I got you were those crappy cruise tickets. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?"
This is why I never buy nice things for people other than myself!~ Sure, my boys bitch and moan about it, but that's their problem!~
That's disappointing. I think there's an episode of Malcolm in the Middle they need to see, where the three boys decide instead of pooling the money their mother gave them to buy her birthday present, they got cheap gifts and spent the rest on candy for themselves. It ends happy, but it had a good lesson.
Redbluegreen, has a good point with the Malcolm in middle. It shows a lot lessons, ideals, debating, comedy yet that comes with a good understandable comedy. Perhaps your boys needs a visual view from someone else than you, (no offense). "If your lessons doesn't work, use something else."
Honey, if I allow another working television to be around the boys, I won't see them for days at a time. They'll learn nothing and just stare at it for hours, no matter what's on. The last time we had a television, they were standing there like mindless zombies while an infomercial was on.
What did you think she was going to get you? Better yet, what could she give that you would think was worthy of your gift? Unless you are extremely tacky, people don't usually know how much you've spent on their presents until they see them. Don't expect them to reciprocate in kind. Give for the joy of giving and not as a sort of bribe.
