Motherhood is something that I find myself thinking about more than ever before of late. Maybe it’s related to my imminent turning of 40. Maybe it’s something we think of more as our children grow. Whatever the reason I think it’s a really positive thing. I’m not one to get sucked into occasions like Valentines but I do love Mother’s Day. A prompt for our children to think about us mums a bit more than usual – and of course to make homemade gifts.
Kitty already leaves me little notes around the house to discover so I’m really looking forward to seeing what her creative little mind comes up with next!
Now the more grumpier husbands *stares at Papasaurus* might think that Mother’s Day is just some over commercialised event, concocted in the past few decades to make money but they would be wrong. I was looking at Thornton’s mother’s day infographic earlier this evening and discover that mother’s day can be traced back over 2,500 years to the time of the ancient Greeks! I wonder if that means that we could ask our men folk to dress up in togas whilst our children feed us grapes as we recline on the sofa? Has to be worth an ask…
To celebrate all things motherly and lovely I asked some friends:
‘What is your favourite mother’s day gift you’ve received?’
Reading these mother’s day experiences has left me excited as to what Kitty and Ozzy are going to make for me this year! Do you have a mother’s day gift which stands out in your mind as extra special ? Please do share in the comments below x
