It’s that time of year again… Mother’s Day, and for the last couple of days I have had the grumps. Or more accurately, the Mother’s Day grumps.
The media tells me that us mums should be taking it easy, having a lie-in with breakfast in bed, which should then ultimately be followed by wonderful surprises and gifts. And… if your extra lucky a wonderful lunch in or out that has not been cooked by your own fair hands!
It’s our day to relax and be appreciated. How hard can that be… right?
Hahaha! Like that’s going to happen with a very little one and a husband who thinks a treat is taking you for HIS favourite cooked breakfast at the local brasserie on the green.
When the grump takes hold, here are 3 things that I like to remember
1) The little one will only be little for a very short time. Embrace your soggy cereal and stewed tea offerings while you can. Before you know it you will be sobbing your heart out in distant memory of the sticky icky stuff.
2) You have the opportunity to show husband the same (un) thoughtfulness in a few months when it’s Father’s Day. Hehehe! Only joking. I always make sure Little Button is able to give daddy a good knees-up on Father’s Day. But it makes me giggle.
3) Mother’s Day isn’t really about getting more presents, you already have the most important gift of all. Love.
Family means you will always love, and be loved for the rest of your life.
What did you get up to this Mother’s Day?
