My Mother’s Day


Mummy says….

As everyone knows, it is Mother’s Day tomorrow, and I have decided I wanted to share with you my Mother’s Days over the years.

My first one was twenty one years ago. It was actually a Mum-to-be Mother’s Day, my then husband and I told both our families that we were expecting our first baby. Overjoyed was not the word. I was absolutely ecstatic. We had been married for almost two years, and I was pregnant. Sadly, this little one was not meant to be with us, and I suffered a miscarriage a couple of weeks later. Devastated was not the word. Heartbroken, angry, confused and in so much emotional pain.

My first baby – my first daughter.

The next Mother’s Day – twenty years ago, I was pregnant again. About five months. My first daughter was born the following July. My pregnancy was going well, but I couldn’t shake off the fear of losing her.

In 1997 I celebrated my first Mother’s Day as a mum. I was ecstatic again, I had a baby girl (albeit it via emergency c-section)

In 1999 I celebrated Mother’s Day with my two year old daughter and a bump – I was growing my second daughter, who was born safely, naturally in the December.

Mother’s Day in 2002, I celebrated with my two daughters now aged six and two, and I had my first baby boy bump who arrived safely in the July.

My last baby – my second son.

It was the three of them for the next TEN years, until in 2012, I celebrated Mother’s Day with something I thought I would never have again – another bump! My fifteen and twelve year old daughters, my nine year old son and my second baby boy bump. Pickle, who arrived easily and safely in October 2012.

Yes, I have two girls and two boys. My girls are now nineteen and sixteen, and my boys are thirteen and three. How blessed am I?

Tomorrow I wll be my three youngest children at home, my eldest is in Bristol Uni and not able to come home f


I have enjoyed thinking about all the Mother’s Days I have enjoyed (except that first one) and I hope you have enjoyed reading about them.

What ever you are doing tomorrow, have a wonderful day.

  1. Oh so sorry to hear about your miscarriage even though it happened so long ago. My mum had one and I don’t think she’s ever gotten over it, even though we’re all grown up now. Nice to know though that you’ve been blessed with more children. I wish I had more than one, but I don’t think it’s happening. Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day! 🙂 xx

  2. Mother’s day is a great time for reflection – what a beautiful family you have. Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow and get spoiled x

  9. You have a great family and I am really happy for you. I wish my brothers and I were close, but since our parents died, we have kind of gone our separate ways. Now I have family of my own, and step daughter who I treat and think as if she was were my blood, I make every day count.

    Thanks for Sharing

  21. This is such a lovely post. I’m sorry to hear about your miscarriage. My mum had several miscarriages before she had me and I can tell it’s painful for her to talk about, but eventually when she least expected it she found out she was pregnant with me. Ever since I was born she counted every mothers day with me as a blessing and I’m sure you do with your other children. It’s great to see you making the most of your special day 🙂 x

  22. I’m glad you’ve had some great Mother’s Day’s after the heartache that followed you’re first one. I always feel so blessed to have happy, healthy kids on Mother’s Day x

  23. I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day this year. Mine was slightly strange. I enjoyed it as I got to spend lots of family time together with our little boy. On the overhand I had a miscarriage at Christmas so it was strange knowing that something was missing.

  25. Wow! That’s quite an age gap between children. I salute you. I don’t think I could get a child to school years and then start again at the beginning. I hope you had a great Mother’s Day.
