The Perfect Mother’s Day
What I would like for Mother’s Day:
1. To wake up refreshed with both girls having slept through the night, in their own beds.
2. A lie-in without being climbed on, kicked, jumped on and demands to hand over my phone.
3. A cuppa in bed. Actually it is Mother’s Day – BREAKFAST in bed!!
4. Cups of tea bought to me throughout the day and all drank whilst they are hot.
5. No nappy changes.
6. No tantrums.
7. No Peppa/Ben and Holly on TV.
8. Going to the toilet without an audience.
9. Not wearing clothes that have splodges of snot/dribble/puke/milk/food on.
10. Not having to prepare food to be told it’s disgusting.
11. Dishevelled (from a day of looking after the girls) husband telling me something like how awesome I must be to look after them every day.
I don’t ask for much do I? In fact, as lovely as a little card may be, all I think I really want is to just feel appreciated and catch up on a bit of a rest. Actually, the more I think about it, if I did get my first 10 wishes I am not sure if I would feel like much of a mummy. There will be a time when I will be able to have that ideal day and no doubt I will have a little cry about how my girls are no longer so reliant on me and may even wish for one of these days back.
So if I get to the end of tomorrow exhausted as usual so be it, but if I have a day filled with more smiles and giggles than tears and tantrums at least I know I am doing a good job.
