I didn’t realise that every time you hurt, that I would hurt ten times more!
I didn’t realise that whenever you looked up at me with that smile and those big brown eyes, it makes my heart just want to explode!
I didn’t realise that you would bring such purpose and validation to my life!
I couldn’t imagine ever having my life without you both and I’m glad that I’m yours and your mine!
Even now at age 7 and 5 years old, I still can’t believe your here!!
Every now and again I pinch myself, sometimes even just that single thought can bring me close to happy tears!
I feel so blessed and so grateful for my title as your mummy for everyday I’m oh so proud, whenever I hear you shout out for me, I smile the widest smile.
You see some people take being a mummy for granted or act like ‘kids’ can sometimes be a burden, get in the way of their careers or social life but I’d rather stay home and have an early night,
and then get up bright and early and go to the park and just sit and watch you play..
Ok that’s a lie, I usually browse on my phone, or take a book or chat with the other mums on the benchies..
but in the background I’ll listen out for your cries or giggles or your constant “watch me do this mummy” demands!!
I usually shout back the same ol same ol of how you need to be careful and come here let me wipe your mucky hands!!
I just want you to know that as I plan for our future and sometimes have to work late.. or I get distracted by my blog or doing the cleaning.. your always ALWAYS my first priority!!
I remember when I was just like you princess saying how “I can’t wait to grow up and be a mummy” and to think I am here, brushing your hair and listening to you say those same words.
I love you so much my beautiful Leshay and Jaray and I hope I make you proud to have you continue to say..
I have the best mummy in the world and I love her to the moon and back again, that’s what I live for Every. Single. Day!!
Because honestly – The Best Job In The World Is Being Your Mummy!!!😍
