Yesterday was Mother’s Day here in the US. I had such a wonderful day and felt so lucky to be a mummy.
After being presented with some beautiful flowers and a necklace that Little M had made at forest school – we set off to the Botanical Gardens together. We had a picnic and a stroll around the gardens together – a really relaxed afternoon. Isn’t it lovely just to spend time with family?
For the first time in ages I completely and truly relaxed and soaked up our time together. We tried to get a posed photo of me and the kids – you know how those work out, don’t you?! In the end I love this photo of having hugs and kisses with my two.
I know it’s a cliche, but I honestly feel so complete since having my kids. I can see a scratch on my cheek LP has given me and I know I’ve got circles under my eyes. But I’ve never been happier. I’ve picked this photo for this week as I want to treasure our day yesterday. I hope for many more days like this to come.
