To all the Mums out there

Today I just wanted to write a little post dedicated to all of my fellow Mums.

I just wanted to tell you, you are awesome.
Not only have you grown a human inside you for 9 months and then brought that baby in to this world in the most painful way imaginable but you are always putting someone else before yourself and you’re always there whenever you’re needed.
Being a Mum isn’t easy and just getting through the day sometimes can be a huge challenge. We do it though, every single day. The baby is always clean and fed, even if that means you don’t eat anything until lunchtime and you haven’t showered in a couple of days. The toddler is entertained with trips to the park and days out to a chaotic soft play, all the while you wish you could just have one day to yourself to relax.
Well, lovely Mums, that day is Sunday. 
Mother’s Day is nearly here, your day is nearly here. The day for you to be spoilt rotten and don’t you dare feel guilty about it. You enjoy that long lie in and cup of tea in bed, it is no less than you deserve after all those countless sleepless nights and dirty nappies you’ve had to change. Cherish the cards off your little ones with their handprints’ painted on the front, enjoy the chocolates and the cake. Breathe in the sweet smell of the flowers and love whatever gifts you receive. You deserve every single treat you get on Sunday so enjoy them all. 
Leave the housework for someone else, grab a coffee and sit and enjoy time with those beautiful children of yours. The children who love you so so much. They may not always say it but they do love you. How could they not, you are their wonderful, amazing Mum.
I hope each and every one of you brilliant Mums have a wonderful day on Sunday, you really truly deserve it. Being a Mum is a job that never stops, you are always on call and you never get a day off. Apart from Sunday that is, so make sure you make the most it. Here is a little video I watched today, in case Mummy guilt is telling you you don’t deserve a day of relaxation, here are all the reasons why you should..

Happy Mother’s Day everyone, wishing you all an amazing day.

Are you going to be spoiling your Mum on Sunday? I wish I lived closer to mine so I could. Have you got any fun activities planned for Mother’s Day. I hope you have a great day whatever you do πŸ™‚

    For lots of reasons I don't enjoy Mother's Day but now my wife is a mother it is up to me to do it for her on behalf of the kids. We'll be having a big family meal with the newest addition to the family so whatever happens it will be a special day!

    Oh wow, I didn't even realize that it is Mother's Day tomorrow! I'm sure my hubby hasn't a clue either so I suppose we won't be celebrating it! I'm not a huge fan of holidays anyway since I would rather appreciate everyone all the time… Although I wouldn't say no to full day to myself to relax πŸ˜‰ Happy Mother's Day to you!

    Lovely to read! Today my daughter is away with her dad so I have the day to myself…did my partner let me lay in and bring me a cuppa? No! But that's fine, when the two of us have children together, I'll be making sure he and the kids treat me all day haha. Happy Mothers Day #KCACOLS

    Lovely post. I love mothers day or any excuse for us all to do something and celebrate. It rather had me off guard to have my two boys being super good, much better when they went back to normal football playing little grubby boys:)) #KCACOLS
