Today's post is a simple one. It's all about those beautiful Mummy moments. The moments that squeeze your heart, make your ovaries twitch and tears prick your eyes.
These children of ours are the most precious things. We created them, I'm amazed by this every single day. We love them like we didn't know we could possibly love, these tiny, little extensions of ourselves. Little fingers and little toes, miniature people bursting with massive amounts of personality and creativity.
We nurture them, we kiss their bumps and scrapes better, we snuggle them when they're poorly, we loose our temper when we get frustrated with them, we laugh at the crazy things they do and we cover our mouths when they say something inappropriate.
Sometimes it is just the little things that make those special 'mummy moments'. The grip of little fingers tightly squeezing mine, the kiss on my head before bed or just saying love you makes my day.
As I write this I'm watching one baby sleep on the monitor and listening to one play in his room. It's a rare moment, I'm sitting alone, with a cuppa for company in the kitchen listening to the tap dripping and sounds of outside. There is no crying, screaming or wailing (at the moment!) and it kind of feels weird. These moments very rarely happen and I'm savouring it, even though it kind of feels a bit odd! I've become used to noise (alot of it) during the day, I've become used to the shouting, squealing and wailing so to sit downstairs and have a very small amount of peace is odd! It's allowing me a rare moment of reflection, I have alot on my mind at the moment and this time is allowing me to collect my thoughts somewhat. I'm thinking about how my life has changed over the last three years, I'm thinking about just how fortunate I am, I'm thinking about how life is going to change in the next three years.
I hope to give you both the best start in life I really do, I'm just muddling through so who knows if I'm getting it right so please bare with me. I love you with all my heart and even though I've more wrinkles than ever before and I see the odd grey hair appearing (ergh) I wouldn't change it for the world.
Parenting, the most varied and wonderful job in the world and these are my mummy moments, what are yours?
