Although more than a few weeks have passed since the May milestone that is Mother’s Day, (having an unsettled baby most days since then are a good enough excuse for the delay, right?) I wanted to share a few photos and memories of this special day.
What made it so memorable wasn’t so much the blissful 6.15am sleep-in, indulging in my absolute fave breaky in bed with my Mum & Sis (Vegemite ladden croissants, in case you were wondering…), the gorgeous gifts (both bought and handcrafted by Master H – super cute!) the cuddles from my cute kids, my husband happily taking over the household reigns, having my gorgeous sis, brother-in-law and beautiful nephews, as well as my wonderful Mum all under one roof for a weekend (even if it was a NOISY roof, thanks to some over excited little boys!) or getting out to enjoy the glorious Autumn weather. While all of the above was very welcome, what made my most treasured Mother’s Day yet was being able to experience it with some other Mummies who I adore, but never get to see enough of: my mum and my sis. It was also the first one where I finally felt like (in the words of Master H!) our family was “complete”..
And even though Master H was lamenting all week the he fact that there is no such thing as ‘Big Boy’s Day’ (to which I replied, EVERY DAY is his day) both he and The Husband really made me feel like one special “Mumma”.
So, on this, my “day off” from domesticity the memory I will treasure most is 7 of my most cherished people in the world – myself, my, sis, and our too gorgeous gaggle of kids – piling onto our bed (having a King Size comes in handy for situations such as this!) to share in the fun, as well as the effort my lovely Husband went to, to ensure I got a taste of the appreciation they have for me. This Mumma was certainly feeling the love!
