So here we are. Being a mother is the hardest thing I have ever done. I have found a whole new level of respect for my mum who had 7 (yes, 7) kids. She not only had 7, but she also totally bossed it on her own. She’s a superwoman and my biggest inspiration.
It may be the hardest thing but it’s also the greatest. I decided to make a list of some of the little things I love about being a Mum…
⁃ The firsts…first smile, first time Arthur grabbed a toy
⁃ The poo face gets me every time
⁃ The smile he gives me when he first wakes up in the morning
⁃ When he’s sucking his dummy and he just stares at me
⁃ How he loves singing
⁃ His smile in general
⁃ The noises he makes when he eats
⁃ How he loves bath time
⁃ Taking pictures together
⁃ When he’s feeding and he keeps holding on to me
⁃ Seeing him smile at his family
⁃ When he goes all shy, smiles then puts his head down
⁃ Reading stories together
⁃ How he loves mouths (not just his own, everyone’s, he’s fascinated!)
⁃ How clapping makes him blink
⁃ Dancing together
⁃ How he’s like a little hot water bottle
⁃ That crossed eyed surprise look
⁃ All the noises
⁃ Travelling, going places together, anywhere!
⁃ All the tickling!
⁃ When he farts really loudly (mature I know hehe)
⁃ On the subject of farting, when he lifts his legs really high and farts hehe
⁃ His chubby cheeks
⁃ Those tiny fingers and toes ❤️
I could go on forever. Joy will come to different people in different ways, whether your a parent or not. For me, Arthur, you are my joy. You have brought me so much love, laughter and I could not be more proud of you. Thank you for teaching me to enjoy the little things. You are my greatest achievement, now and forever.
Stay tuned for another one peeps.
Love, Kate x
