Drying tears, finding socks, cooking dinners, Toddler Tantrums, Teenage Dilemmas. You as a Mum, are the one who knows when to give that big hug or little word of encouragement that can make all the difference to your children’s day.
A special kiss from Mum can make everything ok again.
The little things that add up over the days, months and years can be lifted from your shoulders with her simple touch.
On Mother’s Day you will not even be able to switch off for a single second because no Mum ever gets the whole day off really.
Try and put your feet up and relax properly with a good book and a box of chocolates or your favourite celeb magazines.
Get dad to make tea and the packed lunches. You could even try to get him to do the Ironing if you are brave enough. Let him do the work for the day and although if you’re anything like me I you wouldn’t be able to just sit and watch on Mothers Day.
Realistically, Mother’s day is the same as any other day, Jobs to do and family to care for. Our own mums and grandmothers to visit.
Some mums also have the Mother-in-Law to buy for too. My head gets in such a spin with who to visit. At some stage through the day, you begin to realise that this day is for you too.
But when you read the words your children write in their cards. Along with the hugs, kisses and cuddles they give it makes all the hard work as Mothers we do feel worthwhile.
Although, at the time of writing this I am unsure if my husband and children even know it’s Mother’s Day in the Morning. So, we shall have to wait and see what is in store for me on Mothers day this year. If they forget I may decide to have a strop and go on strike for the day. Whoever you are spending Mothers day with this year try and enjoy it with the ones you love!
