Happy Mother’s Day!
Today is the day when we mums, stay at home or otherwise, should be pampered and loved and waited on hand and foot.
In actual fact what will probably happen is that someone will spill milk all over the floor, or put your expensive moisturiser in their hair.
Ahh being a mum…is there any greater privilege? There are definitely a lot more sophisticated things to be; things that don’t involve having vomit on your shoulder or an extremely limited wardrobe. But privilege? No, there is no greater privilege.
Among my gifts this morning were a book of ‘snowflakes,’ a bunch of flowers, a heart glued with multicoloured rice, and a card written by Bridie (her very first) with about a thousand hugs and kisses.
And Ava gave me a poo.
Yes, the first thing I unwrapped this morning was a smelly nappy.
You have got to love being a mum.
When I was thinking about a mothers day blog, I wanted to write something inspirational and helpful; something to make you enjoy not just this day but everyday as a mum. Something that would encourage you in the good times and the incredibly mundane.
And then Taylah provide the answer. This week is NAPLAN testing. A part of their preparation, Taylah’s class has been learning the art of persuasive text. One of their homework assignments this week was to answer the question, ‘should children obey their parents?’
This was her response.
Yes! I do think children should listen to there parents
Firstly: yes I do think children should listen to there parents otherwise you could get a trashed house.
In addition: your children espeshily little ones should listen or they could drown.
Furthermore: if your child drowns you should of prayed to God
Conclusion: so pray to God or have a trashed house and drown your children.
And I couldn’t have put it any better myself.
Happy mothers day.
