What Mum’s Really Want for Mothers Day

March 10, 2018

With mothers day just days a way you haven’t got long to get yourself sorted for your respected other half or your own mum. This is my first mothers day as a mum and I’ve got to say I’m excited to spend the day taking in all the baby cuddles from my little Theodore and (hopefully) not lifting a finger…

That’s what I want for Mothers Day, to just chill out, have a lie in, not change any nappies and a lovely card from Theodore. I suppose in the years to come I’ll be wanting something different, maybe to be able to go to the toilet in peace, or to be able to eat my lunch with some little grabby hands pinching it. But for now taking in all the baby-ness will do.

I always remember when I was younger me and my little sister Abigail would try make mum the best breakfast in bed on Mothers Day morning (usually just toast and a cup of tea), and some how we’d always have either the toast or the cup of tea stone cold from faffing around for too long. But I don’t think mum minded too much, I think the thought was nice, I hope?

I’ve asked some other bloggers and mums what they’re perfect mothers day gift would be, and most of them aren’t physical! – Us mums, easily pleased.

What do you hope to receive for Mothers Day this year? Send this post to your other half to push for them ideas…

    Love this! It’s my first mother’s day tomorrow but I’m not expecting much. A day off from changing nappies sounds good though!

    This is just the sweetest post!! My mum just wants us round for mother’s day. We always spoil her and take her out but all she wants is to be with us!

    Yes yes yes to the handmade gifts and cards… my mum has always LOVED them from her 5 kids and I can’t wait to get little drawings from my Ru! x

  7. Hahahhaha, love this post so much!

  8. Really enjoyed this post Caitylis! All I wanted was some good quality chocolate and time to enjoy it without small hands stealing it away!

    THIS!!! I still have to wait until May, but I guess that’s a good thing. It’ll be my second Mother’s Day. How nuts is that? Goodness gracious. I just want to be able to have a wee sleep-in and drink a hot (!!!) triple shot flat white without having some grabby little hands reaching for my cup. I guess a ginger slice (or something along those lines) wouldn’t go astray either. Maybe even the ability to be able to take a poop without a baby trying to bash down the door. Hell, that would be a miracle! Mums, we’re pretty simple creatures! I hope you enjoyed your first Mother’s Day!

    xo, Victoria

    I would have liked Mother’s Day to have been remembered to be honest – my partner is rubbish with occasions! But a nice breakfast in bed would have been the most amazing x

    I hope you had a lovely first mothers day! I always just hope for a handmade card, well a card of scribbles from Imogen. I know she doesn’t understand it yet but I can’t wait until she’s older and gets proud of making something they wouldn’t show on Blue Peter.
