Happy Mothers Day

I have only been a mum for such a short time but I have come to appreciate 5 minutes to myself with a nice cup of tea really does make things better….that’s if you can get it.

just over two years ago I was a hesitant mum to be..you know not sure what to expect, not sure if I had any maternal instinct, wondering if the hospital was really going to let me take this precious little person home. I guess they are common feelings. I remember my husband and I driving like miss daisy on the way home from the hospital terrified that something would happen to him. And it was just surreal to go into the nursery and see a real live baby there…and I have to admit I felt a sense of pride that I had made such a perfect thing.
and then just as everyone says the time just seems to fly by and we have gone from this little baby..(newborn cam)..

To this…..a little person full of ideas and personality (cam at about 18 mths)……someone that I can’t imagine my life without.

I guess we work it out along the way and of course we come to appreciate our own mums much more. So happy mothers day to all especially those experiencing mothers day for the first time..and here’s hoping you do get five minutes for a quiet cuppa at some point….
