Happy Mother's Day...

Yesterday was Mother's Day and being the good girl I am I was at my Mum's in the morning carrying the necessary flowers, card and present.

Later on all of us (My and my lot and Wee Sis and her lot) went out with Mum for lunch, had a few drinks and headed back to Mum's where we ended up singing to all manner of things on the stereo!

Earlier in the day I had gotten my own Mother's Day pressies...a book, new pj's I'd been after and chocs but best of all was a small box with a tag on which my son had made at school for me. The tag on the tiny box read...

This is a very special gift that you can never see
The reason it's so special is it's just for you from me
Whenever you are lonely or ever feeling blue
You only have to hold this gift and know I think of you
You never can unwrap it please leave the ribbon tied
Just hold the box close to your heart
It's filled with my love inside

It was a stuggle to keep the tears in as my 5 year old advised me "Mum I made you a box of love at school". These are the sort of gifts I love! 5 year old's box of love is now in my handbag ready to go wherever I do! Aren't kids cute??

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mum's.

10/10... you give that kid a big south african hug from me.
The most precious gift is just that, everlasting love!

Good on you boy!

Best job in the world being a parent! Hard work sometimes and many's a day you just feel like throttling the little angels but it's the best paid job in there is!

Nothing can bring a smile to your face quicker than something funny your kids say or do. Mine keep me young and keep me smiling...well most of the time!

I wonder how embarrassed by baby boy will be when he's a teenager and I'm still carrying his love about!
