I AM THE MUM WHO…

I AM THE MUM WHO…

Thank you so much to the wonderful Mumma Knows for nominating me to write this post titled ‘I am the mum who…’

I AM THE MUM WHO...

This is for my beautiful daughter Evie, who despite her current toddler tantrums, I couldn’t love anymore than I already do!

I am the mum who…

  • didn’t realise she could love something this much!
  • loves being silly with you. You love trying to make me laugh and you have such a fun sense of humour already.
  • bribes you with food so that I can sit and have a warm cup of tea.
  • worries I’m not teaching you enough everyday even though I know I’m doing well.
  • needs to let you fall sometimes so that you learn to get back up (I’m a self-confessed helicopter mum  – always hovering!)
  • loves doing messy play with you. You get so involved and love being arty.
  • is constantly marvelled by how much you learn in such a short space of time.
  • loves watching you and your daddy asleep all cuddled in together. I love you both.
  • loves how affectionate you are. Every cuddle you give me and every cuddle you give your soft toys melts my heart. You are going to be kind hearted.
  • cherishes visiting the bathroom alone.
  • still checks you’re breathing in the middle of the night every few hours.
  • loves seeing how happy you are as soon as your feet touch the beach. It’s your favourite place to be.
  • will always be there for you, no matter what.

Thank you for being my daughter.

I nominate Little O and Me and Mummy and Monkeys to carry this along. I can’t wait to see what you write! 🙂

    Lovely post…you sound so caring and lovely 🙂 I think they learn so fast so quickly don’t they? xxx #maternitymondays

      They really do. We’ve started to do monthly updates just so we can see how much she’s changed. It’s quite scary how much they learn in just a short month. x

    Thank you so much for tagging me! This is such a lovely post. Evie is one lucky girl having you as a mama. I am also a helicopter parent, and my other half is even worse than me (poor Oliver) Becky xx

      That’s ok. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. 🙂 Evie’s only got one helicopter parent which is ok but she still tries to be a daredevil, especially when her dad’s around. Poor Oliver haha. 😀 Let me know if you ever have time to do one of these and I’ll pop over for a read. 🙂 x
