Things My Mother Taught Me ♥
My mam has been a great help with Tyler Lee, she's the one person I go to for advice about him, she brings me to my hospital visits even though she's working two jobs and does a lot of things for my grandparents too, in fact, her and I now speak more than once a day, it's funny how close we've become.
My mam has taught me almost all my life skills, which in turn prepared me for being a mother myself. She is a cleaning obsessive and expected and hoped for my brother and I to be the same, unfortunately I'd say we're not as enthusiastic as her! I was recently asked by Beko to contribute some washing tips that my mother taught me for a feature on their site. It was funny to look back and remember all she taught me about sorting colours and different types of clothing, reading the washing labels and learning what they mean, because I now have a washing machine obsessed three year old who loves learning all these thing!
My mother has done an awful lot for all of us and I'm forever grateful to her. It can't have been easy being a single parent with two young children (I know that this is one of my worst fears as I don't know if I could cope alone). She worked hard to give us everything we needed and wanted and I'm so glad that we've now become closer than ever. I'd be lost without my mam.
I won't be seeing my mam this Mother's Day as she won't be in town but she'll be coming to stay with us the day after for a few days while Jacek is away - another favour she's doing for me. I have a little gift and a card for her from Tyler Lee and I, but this is just a little token of our appreciation for all she does for us.
I've been blessed with a mother who has put her children first all her life and who has given us mounds of wisdom with all she has taught us over the years. I don't say it as often as I should but I love my mam and I'd be absolutely lost without her.
