It’s not about the material things, is it? Not when it comes to family. What matters is the unconditional love. Although a bit of appreciation goes along way.
Which is why I was thrilled to pieces to open my Mother’s Day card from Eve to find the following message. I didn’t get it until the early hours of the morning – I’d fallen asleep putting Noodles to bed. Eve must have popped it in with me as it fell out of the bed as I did. It really meant a lot, so I wanted to share.
For all my grumbling, I’ve got good kids really. (It’s the Husband that really needs working on.)
The past year or so has been filled with lots of events – from planning University, failing to get in and then being pregnant too and the arrival of Teddy. All of these things have been exciting, at times difficult and most definitely emotional.
And you have been there every step of the way.
However, through all of your support I don’t think I’ve ever shown you my full appreciation, or how much you really mean to me.
Thank you for helping me throughout everything, for being the BEST mum EVER, and for being the role model that I can only hope to be myself.
The front of the card sums it all up really.
I LOVE YOU

Awww. It’s enough to bring a tear to the eye. Plus it’s a relief to think that the muddle-through approach to parenting hasn’t screwed them up completely. I guess sometimes the glue does stick.
