I was particularly spoilt this year. My beautiful husband and little man definitely looked after me. There was an extra early gift in a little green box with white ribbon. It sparkled! There was also a large gift that came in the mail the week before the special day.
And in YELLOW!!! Hello LOVELY KitchenAid!!! I know there is an unwritten rule that kitchen appliances are a big NO-NO for Mothers Day, Birthdays and Christmas….. but surely this is an exception?
Another lovely surprise came from Ben on Mother’s Day morning. His hand made gift from Pre-Prep. A portrait of me and reasons why he loves me. And just to share…… he loves me because I make pancakes, play Hide and Seek, Trouble and Lego! Love you right back little guy! I LOVE IT!!!
I also got breakfast in bed. Ben insisted on having breakfast in bed with me. That was interesting. I am so glad he was sitting on Daddy’s side…… crumbs everywhere!!! My breakfast was two slices of raisin toast (on a plastic Lightning McQueen plate) and a cup of my pretend coffee. I felt like a queen!
After breaky it was off to Grasshopper Soccer with my boys. It was Ben’s first day with his uniform and I didn’t want to miss that. He was so excited. He told me he was going to sleep in it every night. He loves it. I think he loves the uniform more than the soccer but I am sure that will change.
After soccer if was off to Bon Laneway. The best coffee in Ipswich or hot chocolate as I don’t drink coffee (gasp….. I know. I’m a freak!!). Yummmm!!!
In all seriousness, I thought I would struggle with Mothers Day this year. But that was not the case. I have had a bit of a rough time of it in the last year. Nothing earth shattering…… well maybe not for others but it did rock my world and not in a good way. Mummy’s day could have been a time for me to sit and wallow about what could have been but instead I chose to be present in the life I have. I chose to celebrate being a Mum to my little man, to count my many blessings and to move forward!
A belated Happy Mothers Day to all of the beautiful Mums xo
Oh yeah….. I have been a absent in the blogging world for a while but I think it is time for a return……….
