My last Mothers Day as a mum of two

I can’t believe that yesterday was my last Mothers Day as a mum of two. I’ve had seven Mothers Days now and each one feels a little more special. This year, Florence was able to understand a little more and she had been doing some ‘secret’ things at pre-school.  She kept her book bag hidden from me so I didn’t see the “Happy Mothers Day” surprise. It’s so cute how she refers to Mothers Day as “Happy Mothers Day”. Every morning last week she asked me if it was “Happy Mothers Day” yet.

Logan was very tight lipped when I collected him from school and he didn’t even make reference to Mothers Day so I wondered whether he had even made a card this year at school as he was so blasé about it all. Keeping secrets isn’t usually Logan’s strong point!

When Matt got home on Friday evening he took the kids upstairs to do a few secret jobs – they all remained very tight lipped!

On Sunday morning Logan came in around 6am and brought with him a beautiful sparkly gift bag. I gave him a cuddle and sent him back to his room until Florence awoke. I hadn’t realised that Matt had told them to bring the present in together and so when Florence saw the gift bag on my bedside there were a few tears.  I gave them both a hug and we soon moved on to seeing what was inside.


Florence helped me open the card….it made me smile as it was definitely the sort of card the kids would have chosen had they done so themselves.


I then pulled out a few little pressies from the bag which were a real treat.  I couldn’t actually believe Matt had chosen them himself.  Matt buying lipgloss?! Wonders never cease! He even informed me Next do a party lips collection should I wish to purchase more!


I also received a beautiful silver bracelet, a silver ‘C’ initial and some beautiful handmade cards from the kids.


Later that day we had some of my family over and Matt cooked a super roast.  Unfortunately I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo of it. For pudding we had cheesecake and the kids had jelly and ice cream.  It was a pretty perfect day!

    Oh, how lovely! The hand made cards are beautiful, love the poem. Mother’s Day isn’t until May here in the US, so I still have my Happy Mother’s Day to come 🙂
