Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mamas out there – i hope you’re all being spoilt today?
I love that we set aside a whole day to honour and celebrate the women who raised us, but if I’m honest, they deserve that EVERY single day. My Mum is an amazing mother, selfless yet strong – and the most beautiful woman I know. She made me the mama I am today and she is the best friend and role model a girl could ask for. The boys and I are SO lucky to have her in our lives and I’d like to think she knows how loved and appreciated she is every day, not just today.
Mother’s Day holds a particularly special place in my heart because of the two boys who made me a mama. There are no words that can quite describe what being their mama is like – it’s a rollercoaster of emotions and feelings. But there are also no words great enough to describe the devotion I have for them. It’s more than love, it’s a feeling like no other – they are my everything and my whole world.
People who don’t have children think that one of the most difficult things about motherhood is having to give up your hopes and dreams, that what YOU want goes out the window in place of always prioritising your kids. What they don’t realise is that their priorities become your priorities and without realising it, those beautiful little humans become all you hoped and dreamed life would be about.
Every day, my boys let me know I am needed and wanted and worthy and loved and appreciated. Every day they teach me something new and I hope they are learning from me in return because I want them to grow up to be the kind of young men this world needs. I want them to be respectful of the girls they know now and the women they will meet in the future, to know that they are not superior just because they are male, and that they don’t have to “man up” and bury their feelings because it’ll be just as acceptable to cry and ask for help in 10, 20 or 30 years’ time as it is now.
So to Riley and Harry, I’ll say this…I’m just a mama who’s doing her best. I’m giving you my all and all I can hope is that every day you know how loved you both are and that you are the greatest things to ever happen to me. I may not always get it right but I will always strive to be the best mama you could both have.
Thank you for choosing me!
Love From Mummy xxx
