Yesterday was my first ever Mother’s Day. My Mum and Mum-in-law’s first ever Grandmother Day, and my nanna’s first ever Great Grandmother Day! I am so blessed to have these strong yet humble women in my life. They all have made so many sacrifices to bring up their children. Being a Mum is one of the most difficult occupations in the world. Just try listing the skillset of a mother, you’d have an epic CV! I knew that being a Mum would be hard work (hence why I shied away from it for many years), but now I finally realise that it is also a joy and a privilege.
A mother’s love is like a blanket. Recently it’s been quite chilly in Melbourne so I’ve been rugging Winston up in this Uh-Oh Baby Blanket. To be honest, when I’m at home, sometimes I steal it and wear it as a shrug, hehehe… Who says that helicopters, bikes and trucks are just for boys?
Yesterday my Uniqlo puffer tagged along on Mother’s Day. Lately it’s become my safety blanket. You know, I used to look at Mums that sport the puffer vest/leggings/sneakers ensemble and think ‘I’d never wear that!’ But somehow with my changing lifestyle (so much lifting and bending!) and fashion’s love affair with all things athletic, I’m morphing more and more into one of those Mums… Soon I’ll be swapping my heels for runners!
