Happy (official) Mother’s Day to all the mums out there!
My day started very early in the morning. Around 5am to be more precise. BC woke screaming from a nightmare. He dreamt he was very cold. As he told me, between inconsolable sobs; “No jacket”, “No hat”, ” No socks”, “No heater.” Funnily enough, what he actually had was no doona (it was on the floor).
It took quite a while to calm him down. Who would have known being cold was so terrifying!?
We’ve had a few nightmares in recent times. I am on the look out for a good kids book that might help him understand than bad dreams ARE just dreams. Anyone got one to recommend?
Once we were up (and the central heating was pumped to high throttle), things got better.
I learnt that a great remedy for forgetting about a bad dream is to declare it’s present opening time. And this is what BC made at kinder and gave me for Mother’s Day:
I love it.
And I now have to confess that I spent most of Mother’s Day working. All for the good family cause of HOPEFULLY buying a house later in the year.
I didn’t mind. I like the work that I do and I already felt as though I’d had a very special Mother’s Day on Friday.
On the way home I stopped to buy myself some new jim-jams and a lovely new bedspread set and I must confess that I couldn’t help but also buy a few really little gifts for my boys. I just feel so blessed to have such gorgeous, funny, loving children. I feel like such a lucky mumma. AND we had fun opening them and playing together this evening.
I hope all you wonderful mums out there got just what you wanted for Mother’s day! You deserve it.
