Do you remember your first Mother’s Day ?
The twinlets were barely 3 months for mine. I had just come out of an excruciatingly painful 2 month bout of nipple thrush. I was severely sleep deprived and hells cranky.
There was definitely no joy that day. No flowers or chocolates.
Instead, I ended up having a massive morning blow-up with Mr Surfer.
To escape the wrath of his crazed wife, he took the boys for a long walk . And I caught up on some much needed sleep.
When the grumpiness subsided, Mr Surfer handed me a card. In it, was a simple, yet heartfelt mention how much my family appreciate me as their mum. Especially during those miserable months of breast feeding in agony. With a little help from their dad, my little boys had also scribbled their names.
The love in that card could melt candle wax.
And that’s all I needed for that day.
No glamour. But every bit memorable.
However you spend it this year, hope yours is a fabulous one ! You deserve it.
