Happy Mother's Day Mummy

It's hard to know where to start with this post.

You see my mum has always been there and when something in your life is always there you take it for granted. I can see it already with BB, daddy comes home from work and she is so excited.  Grams and Grandpa come over and again she is over the moon. I don't get this. Don't get me wrong I want it that way, I get to see everything, all her 'firsts' and we have such a giggle together dancing around the room and playing and reading but she does think that we are 'one'. I love that fact.  This is the way it should be and how I have always been with my mum too.

She has been there for EVERYTHING. She is the first person I call when I have happy news, sad news or just any news! I can count on her 100%

I have such happy memories from growing up. I had the most amazing birthday parties, presents and I was dressed to perfection. She allowed me to have the BEST girly sleepovers and didn't complain even when we were up until 5am doing talent competitions or recording a remake of Grease in which I was playing Sandy and my friends were Danny Zuko, Frenchy etc. I still have that video today.

Mum let me grow up in my own time, never pushed me to do anything I didn't want to and I feel so lucky to have her.  She let me make my own decisions, gave me advice and always stood by me.  We have had so many great times together and moments when we laugh so much we cry.

This year has been an amazing year as we now have Baby Belle and I appreciate mum more than ever. She is such a big part of our lives and helps with BB so much. BB adores her. Hubby adores her. I adore her.

We know Mothering Sunday is just another one of those big marketing ploys to generate money BUT we lead such busy lives so I don't see the harm in putting a day aside to STOP and celebrate motherhood. Sure chose any day you want to do it. Mum knows how much she means to me but sometimes it is nice to say it.

Mum you are the bestest in the whole wide world. If I can be even a little bit as perfect as you then I will be happy.

And finally to Nanny...We miss you so much and we would have loved you to meet Baby Belle. She has your eyes.
