Why is it suddenly okay to disregard Mother's Day?

SO HERE'S my two cents.  

And before all the naysayers get started, I know it all depends on when fields and venues and all that are available but I think consideration for this should also be given.  

Why is it suddenly okay to disregard Mother's Day?  

Musicals, sports trials, even footy carnivals on not just this weekend but actually on Mother's Day! I mean it's rude and ridiculous!   

Us mums give up so much of our time for our kids any their extracurricular activity, and now we are just expected to give up our special day?  

I think it's so wrong and pathetic of schools and sporting clubs to do this.  

Family values and family times are getting fewer by the day.   

No respect at all. Utterly rude.
