Hope all the mammies out there get spoilt today. You deserve it. Being a mammy is the hardest job in the world but also the most rewarding. Though it might not seem like it at times.
It got me thinking about the role of being a mother. People say she doesn’t work, she’s just a mother. Well lets take a look at what ‘Just being a mother’ actually involves
We are an alarm clock, a cook, a waitress, a maid, a teacher, a nurse, a driver, an entertainer, a driver, a handyman, a bodyguard, a photographer, a counselor, a comforter, an ATM, an event planner and we scare the monsters from under the bed!
We are on duty 24/7 for the rest of our lives, we don’t get time off if we are sick. We don’t get holidays, we don’t even get to pee without an audience. BUT. The role of a mother is the highest paid role in the business, It pays in something you cannot put a price on…pure love, hugs and kisses. We wouldn’t change it for the world.
Being a mother is the greatest thing i have ever had to pleasure to be. I had my first son when i was just 18 years old, everyone said ‘your life is over now you have a baby’. Well you were all wrong, my life wasn’t over, it was just beginning and i wouldn’t change it for the world. We may have met a little earlier but it just means i get to love you longer. Today i will spend with my 5 beautiful babies, (hubbie is working) we’ll play and laugh and just be silly.
Hope you all have a Happy Mothers Day.
