Motherhood

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love. ~Mildred B. Vermont

Family has always been important to me and I have been fortunate to hold  many fond memories of my childhood in Leicestershire and a wonderful upbringing by my hardworking loving and supportive parents. I am also blessed with a wonderful mum in-law and not really sure where I  would be without both of my mums.

Month one of motherhood  was a total fog where days and nights rolled into one, eating dinners in relay, playing peek-a-boo and generally feeling overwhelmed with pure joy and exhaustion, it’s a real mismash of emotions. Listening to birds chirping as dawn would break and thinking it’s fine there are millions of  mums and dads like me awake caring for their babies. Even though there is no manual and no let up you just keep on going.  The saying that there is nothing quite like having a baby…I really do get it, the hard work really begins now. :0

Celebrating my first ever Mothering Sunday March 2014 was incredibly heart warming and strangely surreal. As my lovely mum became a Grandma for the very first time I wanted to give her something special for Mothering Sunday. Homework is required by my mumsy but I know how wonderful it will be to read in the future. Mum loves this gift and I know it will last forever. I have already read some of it and I’ve discovered things I didn’t know. The pages prompt descriptions like what is your earliest memory and what was your childhood favourite toy. This book will be one very special keep sake!

Dear Mum from you to me 

I don’t know how my mum made motherhood look so easy. I definitely have more patience these days and try and not get flustered when I have to do three consecutive nappy changes in a row and or get covered in milk throw ups over my freshly washed clothes before but I constantly feel short of time most days…time does not wait for anyone but no matter how busy life gets the one thing my milky boy is not short of,

is love…
