This Mother’s Day I want to dedicate a blog to my wonderful mum and celebrate how brilliant a mother and grandmother she is.
If someone had asked me a year ago to explain my understanding of the term, ‘a mother’s love’, I couldn’t have done it justice. Having now become a new mother myself, I completely understand why my parents love me and my brother so much!
I knew I would love Etta and Artie more than I could comprehend, but since the moment I laid my eyes on them, I have fallen so deeply in love I’m entirely captivated.
I am lucky – I have been blessed with a family who support my every whim, who love the quirky things about me, and who have invested more time and love in me than I can thank them for. I have learnt so much from my parents, and having such a wonderful mother has given me the confidence and ability to become a mother myself.
My mum is a beautiful, strong, passionate and immeasurably kind woman – she is the glue that binds our family together, which is exactly why I want to take a moment to celebrate her!
It is now mine and Freddie's job to take all the wonderful learnings from our parents and pass them on to our children – from teaching new skills, guiding them to make good and honest choices in life, and showing them the joy of family – the list is endless.
This has been our biggest journey yet, but the best bit is, it's a never-ending one.
I only hope I can do half as good a job at raising Etta and Artie, but something tells me that with my mum by my side, I’ll be just fine.
