This Mother’s Day, I told my kids that I didn’t want/need a lavish spoiling that took up 5 hours of my weekend!
All I really want is a small, genuine hug from each of my children, every day.
And I already get everyday hugs!
I get a hug and a quick : I love ya mum! Or I appreciate everything you do! Or Thanks for doing all that stuff for me! Sorry for driving you crazy! Thank for filling out those forms! Sorry for that outburst, let me make it up to you. Can I take out the rubbish bag? Thanks for making that milkshake for me! That was a yummy dinner!
They are lovely kids and they know that it’s necessary to say kind things to me :)
In the end, I did get a cooked breakfast (bacon omelette, just how I like it!), some crafty cards, flowers, chocolates, and a deformed lemon coconut cupcake.
Except that it wasn’t a cupcake, it was a BATH BOMB!
Haha it seriously looked like a cupcake to me. I almost ate it!!
As I wrote on my Instagram, I didn’t have a completely stress-free and relaxing day.
I still fought with my kids, made them do chores, shouted at them, took away their devices, I still had errands to run, work to catch up on, kids to manage, meals to cook, activities to plan. It was the mum-life as usual. But that’s ok. It all balances out in the end, I’m not too fussed.
Hope you had a great weekend!
