Motherhood is full of amazing and wonderful moments.
Starting from the day you see that second line on a pregnancy test, becoming a mum is full of excitement and terror in equal measure. The most unbelievable highs and moments where you’d chop off your right arm to protect the tiny person you created.
A world full of firsts and days where you feel so proud you could burst.
But then there are all the days inbetween.
The moments where you are just ticking along. Life is a whirl of washing and ironing, cooking, packing bags, bedtime routines and far too early mornings.
Nights where you’re changing bed sheets at 2am because your little one is sick. When you’ve had a beaker of milk spilt in your lap, and then been accidentally head butted in the nose (yes,this was my Friday night). Days when you have barely moved from the sofa, your hair is scraped back in a scruffy pony and the washing machine has not stopped all day trying to clean the sick stained bedding.
The very unglamourous times of being a mum. But the moments I want to bottle up and cherish. The times when my 2 year old needs me more than ever. When nothing but mummy cuddles will do.
When he wants me to just be his mum.
