Hotel Chocolat are looking for ‘mum moments’. With Mother’s Day not far away, they want to know what those moments are. Which moments made you really feel like a mum? Were they happy moments, touching moments, proud moments, they could even be those frustrating moments?
Of course, I have to answer that question to and it is a tough one, especially having four children. I probably have lots of mum moments that I could share, but I have picked just a few to share.
One of my earliest mum moments came for me just after my eldest son was born. Having had a caesarian, we stayed in hospital for a few days and I remember looking at him lying in his see-through cot looking at me with his masses of black hair and his big eyes. He just lay there calmly looking at me. Everyone had gone home, it was just the two of us and I can still remember really seeing him properly for the first time, quite overwhelmed by the rush of love that I felt for this new little person, coupled with the disbelief that he was mine. I was a mum and it was an amazing feeling.
Another came with my youngest son who was always a complete monkey (and still is). He was about two. It was one of those moments when you leave them for a few minutes and everything goes quiet. Too quiet. When I returned to the living room, I discovered that not only had he opened the large tub of Sudocrem and covered himself in it but he had also redecorated most of the living room with it too. Not a bad job in five minutes. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry but definitely another of my ‘mum moments’.
There have been so many of those moments over the years with all four of my children. When they have won star of the week, appearances in school productions, reaching those all important milestones, losing their first teeth, successes in school or on the sports field, those days when they just make you laugh or cry. Being a mum is a rollercoaster that is for sure but I wouldn’t have it any other way and those ‘mum moments’ all remind you of what an amazing job it is.
