What’s Better Than A Sleep In On Mother’s Day?

MUM

I’ve heard many things, from many mum’s, about what they would like for mother’s day this year.  Flowers, Breakfast in Bed, Chocolates, A Sleep In……  Mmmm yes, a sleep in would be lovely wouldn’t it?  But I ask you this:

Is a sleep in better than your child snuggling their face into your neck?

Is a sleep in better than the sound of your little one laughing hysterically?

Is a sleep in better than the smell of your child’s hair after a bath?

Is a sleep in better than your little one’s cheeky grin?

Is a sleep in better than knowing exactly what your little one is saying when everyone else only hears gobbledegook?

Is a sleep in better than catching the intense frown on your little one’s face when they are concentrating really hard?

Is a sleep in better than the amazing questions your little one asks – that have you astounded at the beautiful way they see the world?

Is a sleep in better than trying to stifle a laugh when your little one dresses themselves in the ‘coolest’ outfits?

Is a sleep in better than an ‘I love you Mum!’?

Is a sleep in better than watching your little one’s eyes drooping slowly closed as they drift off to sleep, safe and warm?

Is a sleep in better than the look of astonishment, and pride on your little one’s face when they realise they can do something new for the first time? 

Is a sleep in better than knowing your embrace can heal all manner of hurts?

Is a sleep in better than having the ability to make this little human feel safe, loved, and happy, with just a hug and some soothing words?

Well…. The answer is no, in my opinion.

Mother and child
