I’ve never really like Mothers Day. The way I see it, you shouldn’t celebrate it just one day a day, it should be all year around. But today, it was such a lovely day.
So this morning, I saw my children. Today out of 3 days a week is when I get to have them. I got there, I had an Alfie launch himself onto me and cuddle me so tight. I had a smiling little Regan by the side of me and Mason, well he was just too busy with building his train tracks to notice 🤣.
While we was buliding and creating new things, Mason came up to me with his sparkling smile and said “Mummy, Happy Mothers Day”. I said to him “How did you know about Mothers day sweetie?” And his reply was “We got told about it in school, your very special mummy” and from that, I felt my heart rush, I pulled him close into me and I cried.
(Old picture of all 3 of them together as I forgot my phone today).
After seeing my kids, I went home. It was the first Mothers Day without having my kids around contiously, & it broke me. When I got in, I locked myself in my room and just went to sleep hoping that when I woke up, It would be the next day and I could get myself ready for my last three shifts at work.
But instead, I got woken up by my partner when he arrived home from work. He came into the bedroom, explaining that he knew how bad today was gonna be for me. He walked over, sat on the bed and gave me a card and brought me a few things from my children (and our lost babas.)
I don’t think I have ever cried so much. I felt pain, but within that moment, I also felt happiness. What my Partner did for me today has made me realise how much I love him and when this day comes around for him in a few months time, I’ll be there. I’ll be there to get him his card and I will be there to try my best to make him feel a bit better than he would.
Happy Mothers Day everyone, as I said everyday should feel like a mothers day because we are there for our children 24-7, but it’s nice to feel special for just that one day. ❤
