I use to hate Mother’s Day for many reasons one it’s a day to celebrate the woman who have children and put them first before their themselves. They are selfless, loving and wise. My mother was none of those things. She was selfish, nasty, manipulative and allowed us to be abused by men. She did not protect the way a mother should, we never the loving hugs of reassurance when we was poorly or the I’m proud of you when you receive a great school report. To be honest I don’t think she was interested in my schooling, she never went to any of the parents evenings, I don’t think she cared how we got on.
Since I became a mother to my three boys I know what a mother is. My children are hugged,loved and praised. They are not yelled at with foul mouth abuse, they are definitely not smacked and if anyone was to hurt s single hair on their head I would go bat shit crazy. I’m a fierce a mother I protect my children, I will fight for my children. I will always love and care for my children. That is a real mum.
I would like to wish all the mummy’s a huge Happy Mother’s Day. I hope all you lovely mums are having a great day.
