Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the special mommies I know – a day to celebrate the endless love that you show!

Some days it feels like everything’s all right – not a single tear or tantrum in sight!

But every so often – and you know what I mean – the simplest of tasks can lead to a scene.

Kicking and screaming and arching their backs – some day’s I would do anything to turn the clock back, to a time when a carrier was all we would need – snap into the base and you’re off with great speed!

But alas as they grow and become more independent, take a deep breath and try not to relent. Patience is a virtue – or so they say and essentially you just need to get through the day!

Fresh from a bath and snug in their jammies, there’s nothing like a few books to bring together the family. After songs and hugs, it’s time for bed. Love you mama says my sleepyhead.

As they drift off to sleep, I can’t help but say how lucky we are to be mom’s every day. The hours are long and how ‘bout the pay?? But what we get back is more than words can say. The pure sound of a giggle or a squeal of delight –shy little smiles and hugs with all their might! These priceless moments add up everyday – and with that my friends, I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Well Deserved Mother’s Day!
