Mothers Day 2018
Just in case you don’t know, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, 13th May. Still trying to find the perfect gift? Click here.
Mother’s Day has always been a special day on my calendar as it’s the day I get to treat my Mom to something special.
Since I became a Mom 4-and-a-half years ago, Mother’s Day has taken on a whole new meaning for me.
Not just because I also get pampered and made to feel special on the day. But because becoming a Mom was the most life-changing transition I have ever gone through.
Mommying enhances your life in so many ways.
First of all, giving birth is a right of passage. It’s the weirdest mix of heaven and hell, pleasure and pain, madness and miracle. MIRACLE… You get to produce a real live human being. Waaaow.
And then there’s breastfeeding, which for me was just the most wonderful feeling in the whole wide world. So wonderful I kept going until my son was completely done (which in our case was nearly 4 years).
And, of course, you make a whole new set of friends. In my case, this has given me the opportunity to make many younger friends as I’m usually the oldest Mom in a group of Moms.
Your social life is different as a Mom. It usually involves a playdate of some sort. And coffee. Or wine. Or both.
So it’s usually in places you never found before you were a Mom, child-friendly spots with play areas. Out in nature. In parks. On beaches. And home becomes one of the best places to be. You also become part of the furniture in other Mom’s homes. It takes a village to raise a child.
And then there are all those precious Mommy Moments. Their firsts. Their jubiIation when they crack a new milestone. That day they pack away their toys without you even asking. The little gifts they bring you. The songs they softly sing away to themselves when they think no-one’s listening. Their whispered (or shouted) I loved you’s.
I paid tribute to my own Beautiful Mom on her 74th Birthday, which was just a couple of days ago, on the 8th May.
