Tomorrow is Mother's Day and for those who don't do Mother's Day because they say it's, "Over commercialised" or you are a bigot ( I often find those who state commercialisim, you dig below the surface and it has more to do with them being a bigot), Grow up !
Mother's Day is a reflective day. A day for you to think about your mother and what she has done and does for you, and what you have done and will do for them. The bigots get Mother's Day mixed up with Mothering Sunday. Mothering Sunday is about your mother church, not your mum and is a Christian thing. Mother's Day is for us all, whether you're, "black, white or indigo russet", as my Mum says, and as I've said before, "You don't have to buy into the commercialism."If you are the perfect attentive son or daughter I guess you're off the hook, if you don't do Mother's Day, because every days Mother's Day for your mum. Sorry just trying to stop myself urging. Lol
For the rest of us who live in the real world, we need these days to catch us by the collar and think, "Shit, I've not spoke to my Mum for a while, I wonder how she is ?"
Tomorrow morning I get to miss being force fed breakfast in bed by my children, as I'm milking tomorrow morning. Not a fan of eating in bed (Which I've mentioned before), as there are only two things you should do in your bed, in my mind. You learn as time goes by that one thing is certainly better and more comfortable in your bed. When you're young you will try and do it anywhere, in the back of the car, at the dinner table, on the sofa, in a tractor, in a field under a tree and it don't matter how much you have of it, it never seems enough, often you are stopped before you think you have had enough, by your parents disturbing you, but get older and you learn the best place to sleep is in your bed, and the other thing to do in your bed, of course, is to read a good book. Lol
Now for two things that make me think I'm not doing such a bad job at being a Mum, because I could give you a list of things that I think make me a crap mum, but I would like to wind this up tonight. Lol
The first is the other day I had the radio on in the car and was playing a CD by "The Jam" and turned back to the radio just as the track, "Going Underground" (If you don't know the band "The Jam" you can listen to the track "Going Underground at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AE1ct5yEuVY) was starting and something by "Rhianna" was playing on the radio and the children all screamed at me to turn back to "Going Underground."
The second thing is my youngest, Tilly who is nearly six years old, was asked yesterday in school to write down things that Mums give you. The other children wrote lists with things such as ipad, playstation etc and my little Tilly wrote, "My mum gives me hugs and kisses." That was it short and to the point my little Tilly is, I wonder where she gets that from ? Love is the most precious gift that can be given to a child and your child knowing that, is a precious gift for a mother.
So lets end with the Poundlane Mommas sending out our love, hugs, licks and kisses to all the mothers around the world doing their mothering best. Have a wonderful day !
