Something for da mummies.

Happy Mother’s Day!!
To all the mummies.
The kissing mummies*. And the smacking mummies.
The cranky mums* and the serene ones.
The mums*, moms, mama’s*, ma’s*, mummies*, mommies and otherwise. 
The mums who iron. 
And the ones who don’t*. 
The ones who bake cupcakes from scratch. 
The ones who bake cupcakes a ‘la Betty Crocker*.
And the ones who don’t bake at all.
Happy Mother’s Day to the computer mums*.
The shopping mall mums.
The playgroup mums*.
The Stay At Home Mums*.
The working mums.
And the mums who do a bit of everything.
The breastfeeding mums*, the bottle feeding mums, the expressing mums.
The ‘sposie nappy mums, and the cloth nappy mums*.
The gluten free mums.
And the ‘my kid has every Happy Meal toy ever made’ mums*.
Happy Mummies Day.
To the mum’s who like to play*.
And those who don’t.
Who like craft and coloring in*.
And those who don’t.
Who like to sing and dance to the God forsaken Wiggles.
And those who don’t*.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mummies.
The quirky*, the strict, and those that are in between.
But of course, most of all, Happy Mothers Day to my wonderful mummy, my childrens loving Nonna, who taught me love, humility, patience, kindess, and not to sweat the small stuff (and it’s all small stuff… right?). The best of who I am, I take from you. We are very blessed and eternally grateful to have you in our lives.

* Denotes “Yuh, I’m that type o’mummy”.
