A few of my favourite things...

Today I’ve been thinking a lot about being a Mum, and how it’s my favourite part of being me at the moment. I know I’m a whole person, not just a Mum, and I enjoy plenty of stuff outside of parenthood, but really, there’s no other aspect of my life that gives me as much at the moment.

So here are a few of my favourite things about being a Mum:

THAT LOOK: When your little one gazes up at you like you are the most amazing, wonderful thing in the world. And knowing that to them, you are.

BEING A SUPERHERO: Who can dispel monsters with a single wave of her hand? Who can fix boo-boos with one magic kiss? Who can make everything okay with only a hug? Mummy can!! There’s no greater ego boost than being all-powerful.

BEING A GENIUS: From figuring out how to get the wheels back on the Animal Train, to knowing why butterflies like flowers, there’s no greater ego boost than knowing everything! As an aside, I think all Mums who have figured out how to assemble a cot, a motorised swing (fondly referred to as the Neglectomatic around here), fold down a new-fangled stroller and stop the musical keyboard from being stuck in a mind-warping loop of “Mumma’s Little Bubby Likes Shortnin’ Shortnin’” deserves an honorary engineering degree.

REDISCOVERING MY INNER CHILD: Sitting on the floor making a Play-Doh village, dressing up dolls, dancing like a maniac to Hi-5, blowing bubbles in the backyard... never had so much fun!!

  4. lol I was lucky, small to start with, they've gone back down to one size bigger than the original version, still look ok in a singlet top (except for the tuckshop arms I now have, but that's a different matter!!)
