I am a Mummy

Mother's Day this year has taken on a new meaning for me. On Monday, just before he went to bed, Thomas called me 'Mummy' for the first time. He is 16 months old. He like most children said 'dada' first at around six months old and a few months later, the odd 'mama' started coming out too. I have been encouraging him to say 'mummy' since.

This is my second Mother's Day. I always thought my first ever Mother's Day would be most significant but actually I think it is going to be this one. Thomas now knows who I am and that I will come and help/cuddle/support him whenever he needs me too.

Since becoming a Mummy, I have changed for the better. I appreciate the small things in life now. I have enjoyed every moment with Thomas from the first smile, the first tooth, first food, first steps, and even managed to enjoy the (horrendous) first haircut experience! Thomas is changing every day now at an alarming fast rate and I am enjoying every second of it.

This Mother's Day and every other day for that matter, I will get to cuddle and kiss my son and tell him how much he means to me. Some other Mummy's like Jennie from Edspire are not able to do that anymore with their child as they are shining stars in heaven looking down on us all. Because of this, I urge you this Mother's Day to enjoy being a mummy, enjoy being with your children and remember those Mummy's who are less fortunate than ourselves.

  1. Being called Mummy for the first time is such a wonderful thing. I am hanging onto my last 3 who still sometimes call me Mummy before they all just say Mum, I know it is coming but it’s not the same.

  2. It just means now when they wake up the shout Mum, Mum, Mum not dad, dad, dad, its lovely to go to them and see their bright shining faces. Funnily enough Fiona my over 30’s call me mummy sometimes.

  3. This is my 2nd Mothers Day with Shy as well and although I will probably receive less than last year and it will be less acknowledged, it’s so different this year. I can actually get a kiss from her on Mothers Day as opposed to just kissing a newborn bubba (lovely also!). Getting a kiss and hug from her alone will make this Mothers Day special x

  4. If you think them saying Mummy is special, wait until you get ‘I love you’. Life doesn’t get an better than that… 🙂
