You know you see those soppy “Love Is…” cards and think “Aww, that’s sweet” (and slightly cheesy)? Do you ever look at the sweet lovely perfect words about a perfect world and think they’ve glossed over certain things. Things that REALLY show what “Love Is”.
If there were “Love Is” cards from a mum to a small child they would probably include the following….
Mummy Love Is… Running to the other side of the baby gate before the toddler follows you up the stairs, accidentally banging your hip against the metal and NOT swearing.
Mummy Love Is… Spending so much time with your entire arm under the couch retrieving bits of toys/jigsaws/books it would make a vet jealous.
Mummy Love Is… Spending what feels like eternity hovering around the toddlers highchair trying to get them to eat another mouthful
Mummy Love Is… Answering the toddlers 200th “Whats this?” question of the day.
Mummy Love Is… Sleeping on 2 inches of bed as your poorly/non sleeping toddler joins you starfish style and proceeds to kick you in the stomach/face for most of the night.
Mummy Love Is… Asking the toddler for a kiss 30 times a day and being very pleased when they comply.
Mummy Love Is… Trying to catch a wriggly tantrum-ing child and place them safely on the floor about 150 times a day.
Mummy Love Is… Singing nursery rhymes together. Constantly. Repeatedly. ALL dayyy long! (The wheels on the bus go round and roundddd….)
Mummy Love Is… Letting your toddler glue themselves to your hip on clingy “not in the mood” days.
Mummy Love Is…Knowing all the words of their favourite programme because they’ve seen it that often.
So why don’t they have these cards? They would be a hit, right?
