I adore my children. I will share I had this image of today, mother's day being a "perfect" day with harmony all day, lots of happy moments etc etc. I was woken up early by the dog needed to go outside and my daughter first woke up after I had cooked myself breakfast.
What I realised is that is was probably the mother's day I needed. Things went wrong, homework was forgotten about until late Sunday evening, my daughter had an emotional meltdown with tears, small accident with the car....
This is what being a mother is all about. Not over reacting to things that were an accident. Giving comfort when there are feelings of sadness. Talking things through. Sitting at the kitchen table and helping with homework. Being present. This was what I learnt and experienced today. It isn't about gifts and having breakfast in bed.
I felt so loved by my two children and that made my mother's day very magical.
We have a picture in our home which says: In this house, we do real; we do I'm sorry; we do fun; we do hugs;we do really loud; we do second chances; we do happy; we do forgiveness and we do love.
