Mothers day has always been a date highlighted in my mind, I used to love making something special at school or crafting a card, making sure my neatest handwriting was applied and so excited to hand it over on that special morning to be greeted with an over the top (yet encouraging) THANK YOUUUU from mum.
I feel like as a child you subconsciously know that the mum in the family is often left going without, she is the one doing the organising/ cake buying/ surprising / planning for everyone else so it feels really special and important to give something back.
I have always enjoyed celebrating mum, she does so much for us all and never stops to put herself first! Now that I am a mum myself I experience first hand what its like to look after everyone, I love making a big deal of everyone else so its nice to think there is a day put a side to just enjoy being a mum, making a fuss of your own mum and well just saying an extra special thank you because oh my gosh you deserve it!
This year I will be of course spending it with my lovely mum and Sonny, hopefully with a delish slice of cake, cup of tea with a card resting on the mantle piece (note to husband!) and next to some lovely spring daffodils….god I love them this time of year!!
I long for that day when Sonny proudly hands me a homemade card and I get to gush to him about how amazing it is, see his little beaming smile!
I hope all you mums out there have a relaxing or at least a somewhat peaceful day, you deserve a break!!
