5 things i love about mother’s day

  1. The pretend sleep-in. Kids aren’t quiet, particularly on special occasions. It’s basically a physical impossibility. I’m bound to hear them clanging around the kitchen working on my breakfast. And let’s be real, the sound of someone else cooking a meal is pure music to my ears.
  2. My husband. Being married to me is hard (don’t tell him I said that). He helps the kids to make it an extra special day for me and I don’t have to lift a finger, which is always nice.
  3. Ask dad. No one asks me for favours — they let me shower with the door closed, I get to read in peace, dad referees all of the squabbles. It’s glorious.
  4. Homemade presents. It’s not even so much about the gifts themselves, it’s actually about the beaming pride on their squishy little faces when they present what they’ve created.
  5. Feeling grateful: Taking the opportunity to think about how lucky we are to have each other.
