Mother’s Day musings

My Mother’s Day fell somewhere between being mildly hilarious and exceedingly ordinary. It’s probably what happens to us all…

The day didn’t get off to the best start when I was the one who got out of bed before my husband to attend to the wide-awake and very wriggly 18 month old who sleeps between us. After a less-than-perfect night (try sleeping next to something whose genetic material seems to be primarily derived from kangaroos and octopi), I’d had enough anyway, so I was happy to forsake any thought of a sleep-in and get the day underway.

It didn’t get any better when later in the morning, as I was in the midst of giving my daughter a big cuddle, she delightedly squealed “Mummy” when she saw her daddy and leapt out of my arms into her father’s…

Finally, the day started to look up when my husband offered to take her outside to play while I got to stay inside and…bake myself some gingerbread. Yep, that’s right, I made myself my own Mother’s Day present. As hubby mischeivously told me afterwards “You’re not MY mother”…

The day ended well, however. How could it not…a seriously gorgeous daughter, a pretty damn good husband (he did redeem himself later by making me a delicious risotto), perfect weather and some homemade gingerbread to munch on.

Here’s to the delightful world of motherhood!
