Mums truly are the best. It seems that no matter how old I am, I'm still my mother's child and she's always there to help me out. Yesterday, when I felt so awful, my Mum came and rescued me, watching the girls while I rested. She turned up again today to help out. What a god send! I don't know how I would have got through the day, I'm sure I would have done it but it would've been painful.
It seems I'm not the only one with a tops mum. The always wonderful Beth from BabyMac wrote about her marvellous mum today and this recent post from Maxabella Loves brought tears to my eyes.
So here's a big cheers to ALL the mums out there. Young and old. The ones who are always there, no matter what. Mums are what help the world go round.
Edited to add: I know how lucky I am to still have my mum alive, close by and involved in my life. Not everyone is this fortunate. There are many marvellous mums out there tackling motherhood without the guidance of their own mums. The cheers include ALL these mums.
