What does Mother’s Day mean to you? To be honest I don’t need a Hallmark card to make me feel special. I love looking after my children and a card or meal doesn’t make me feel any more or less loved (although I won’t say no if I’m offered a present!). Looking after children of any age can be as hard as it is rewarding. Sometimes the overflowing wash basket and uneaten meals literally make me cry. But most of the time my heart swells when I see the toddler learning a new word or his little sister walking across the room unaided.
Do you realise that the favourite Thomas tshirt you wash so your son can wear it the next day makes him really happy. Or the messy baking sessions which fill your child with confidence that lasts all day? Those little things we do everyday have a real impact on the whole family.
Take a look at this cute video called “the Mummy Effect”, which shows how the things mum do which seem quite ordinary are, in fact, quite the opposite to their children. To help celebrate the fact there is extraordinary potential in every moment (no matter how ordinary they seem) I’ve been given a goody bag filled with P&G beauty products to giveaway to one of my readers.
