I am the Mum who......


I've been nominated  in the 'I am the Mum who....' tag by A Slice of my Life in Wales here is my post.

Dear Alfie (and Elarna, although mainly Alfie as Elarna is only little!)

I am the Mum who...........

Still uses a monitor in Alfie's room, I don't care that he's 3 I like to know what he's up to while he sleeps, plus we live in a town house so it's useful when we're on the bottom floor. 

Will hide in the cupboard and sneak a couple of marshmallows without Alfie busting me(hopefully!).

(Probably) posts far too many pictures on Facebook of the two of you, but hey who cares you're my life. 

Lies about the Thomas and Friends ride on at Tescos been broken.......it's been broken about 4 months now!

Will not let you have Haribo unless Daddy is home to deal with the consequences, yes I fear I'm turning into my Mother in Law god help me.

Is not overly  bothered if you don't want to wear socks or shoes in the garden, I'm not going to battle with you, I can see you're happy which means I'm happy.

Treat you way too much, sometimes it's hard to resist that cheeky face.

Hides the Lego, it's just way too messy at times. Sorry.

Threw out the Playdoh, I couldn't cope with all the mixed colours and it went all dry. Bad Mummy.

Gets far too emotional when you hurt yourself, the tears and the sobbing make me want to sob with you and wrap you up in cotton wool.

That feels so proud of you when learn to do something new.

Feels a great sense of achievement when I've looked after the 2 of you , on my own, without any naughty corner trips!

Still loves it when you call me Mummy and you wrap your arms around my neck and give me a big cuddle.

Likes nothing better than a family day out, just the 4 of us.

Strives to be the best Mum I can be but sometimes doubt myself. 

Loves spending time with you but those 2 days in Nursery let me catch my breath and get some energy back.

I now tag the following to take part:

  1. Ha ha this really made you chuckle, I do a lot of these too! My youngest was 4 when I stopped using the monitor and even now I still panic because I can't hear him. You sound like a fantastic mummy x

  4. Aww - how lovely! The lego - yes! It's not just me! (I do now feel a bit like I'm at Lego Hiders Anonymous, though: the first step is admitting we hide lego!) #mummymonday
