Thank You's @ Reception

I recently attending and was part of a wedding for my mother. Her and her new husband during the reception got up to thank those that helped them, and to thank the wedding party. I was the MOH and only bridesmaid, and my son the ring bearer. While she was doing her thank-you's she looked at me, and then completely skipped by myself and my son, and went on to thank everyone else. 
I was wondering if this is a faux pas in wedding etiquette seeing as how my wedding is up and coming. I would never leave my girls out, and was more than a little hurt that she left me out. Any thoughts?

    Talk to your mother. She might have not realized that she didn't mention to thank you.This isn't about etiquette, but about your relationship with your mother. So talk to her.

    It was probably an oversight - when i was doing my thank yous i skipped half my speach becasue i was so emotional and i forgot to thank the MC and my brothers for video tapping - and i cut down the parts about my girls cause i just couldn't get through them.
    On top of emotions - public speaking is very hard on some people and that could have added to the stress/emotion of the whole thing
    If you are hurt, ask her about it, but the fact that she had you as her MOH i expresses how she feels, so i'm sure it was just an emotional oversight

    I've normally seen the thank yous to the WP done at the RD whereas the thank yous at the reception are a general thank you to everyone for sharing our special day with us kinda deal.
