I love being a mum.
It’s my first mother’s day as a mother!! I missed it by 2 days last year. Forgive me if I get a little maudlin and teary eyed.
I’ve done some pretty rewarding work in my time and held a lot of responsible roles, but nothing compares to being a mum.
I love to watch my daughter as she plays away, oblivious to my parental eye. I see her gentle nature emerge as she cuddles dolly and plays with our cats, I admire her adventurous spirit as heads, tentatively at first and then with great determination, up the stairs for the first time and then later out the front door into the garden. I feel privileged to see her wonder as she learns how to interact with this world of ours.
The enormity of emotion I feel when she turns to me for comfort or reassurance is beyond words and I really do treasure our days together.
Anyhoo, enough of that self indulgence, the nappies won’t wash themselves………
