Look After Mum This Mothers Day

This Mother's Day I will be celebrating with my 1 year old son and 3 year old daughter. We will probably have a lazy morning in and then in the afternoon visit my in laws. 

I don't really have a Mother's Day wish list of what I'd like to do except spend it with my family and be grateful that I can. Saying that a nice lie in or for the kids to sleep through the night would be an advantage. 

Mothers Day for me is also a time to reflect on those who sadly don't have their mothers or grandmothers still with them. Although my mum is no longer with us I'm grateful for the time that she was and I will be celebrating her life this Mother's Day. 



It's important to remember to look after yourself too though. As a mum you're no longer your first priority. My children come first and they always will. 

However it is good once in a while to take some time out to look after yourself. Whether that be to have a relaxed day in or meet up with friends for a catch up. We sometimes need a break from nappy changes and bathtime. 

Iv collaborated with SHeilds.org where they have put together a lovely little ebook where mummy bloggers have given their Mother's Day top tips on health and safety.

Do you have any mothers day tips? I'd love to hear them.

  1. Lovely post. I agree about spending the day with family and reflecting on the lives of those who are no longer with us, but live on in our hearts and through our memories x

  2. I can't wait to visit my Mum this weekend for Mother's Day! :D My tip would be to focus on doing something nice together... it's more important than a lovely gift!

  3. Make sure you stock up on your fav chocs and bubble bath and good book / magazine and then scoot off for a cheeky soak while the hubs takes the kids to the park! That's my plan anyway! :)

  4. Hi Katie, we don't really acknowledge Mothers Day. It's funny as I always did as a child and I know my Mum likes a little something, but for me it really doesn't matter. If we lived in the UK it would probably be different and whilst they do have Mothers Day here it's not such a big thing.

    I do however agree with Mums taking a little timeout to look after themselves. After all we can't look after our brood if our batteries are half empty!
