Mother's Day

Today I am celebrating the 'career of my life'

Being a mother is all-consuming, regardless of whether you are full-time, part-time, unemployed.... motherhood trumps it all in terms of your thoughts, hopes, fears, emotions - every mother is a full-time mother some of them just get paid to do other stuff as well!

This week I've loved watching the preparation for first football game of the season

Celebrating with a little boy who wrote his name all-by-himself for the first time

and watching our boys paw over photo albums delighted to see themselves and re-live some of our adventures.

And there have been sleepless nights and burst ear-drums, puddles to jump in and skinned knees, tears and laughter and huggles..... and all the patchwork of life together.
Happy mothers day to all the mama's out there and especially to my own mama - constant inspiration to aspire to as a mama.
