Let us please normalize doing nothing...
...and give grace to all on Mother's Day
Tomorrow it's Mother's Day and is this or is this not the face of a mum watching the kids load the dishwasher on Mothers Day? Part love … Part frustration…
I don't know about you but honestly all I want to do on Mothering Sunday is stay in and snuggle up with my babies in pjs with a film and tons of yummy food. I don't want to go out for lunch with every other mother, or have over priced cards and flowers and menus prepared “just for mum” that is not what I want at all. I just want one day to have the excuse to do nothing - but snuggle my babies and watch a film of my choice (Breakfast at Tiffany's or Barefoot in the Park). They can make me a card, or not… I really don't mind. Just having them with me is enough.
Mothering Sunday is tricky for some.. those who are trying to have children, those who can't have children, or choose not to, those who no longer have mums here, those who have lost touch with mums… Tomorrow might be hard and I am aware of that and want to be respectful. So for me celebrating this day in a huge showy way doesn't sit well. I like it to be just us. Quiet and private.
I am aware of how precious my babies are, having had miscarriages and been told initially that I would never get pregnant and if I did couldn't carry them to full term … well competitive Charlie DID - I got pregnant naturally three times, all babies were 5-10 days overdue and then I went through labour 3 times with (almost) no pain relief - I would not recommend that last one that was HARD.
Tomorrow - I will give thought to all mums here or not, and to all women in the world whether a mum or not … and also to the dads who act like mums & dads doing BOTH roles, like the rockstars they are.
I will give thanks to my babies and to my badass strong body for overcoming the odds and proving all the Dr's wrong.
Much love xo
