I have had this new cushion in the works for a little while but I thought today was probably the day to tell you about it. Today is Busy's first day of school. I dropped her off this morning and felt those mother pains you get in your heart. As I was leaving the classroom I was unable to speak to the teacher as I knew I would cry. I can proudly declare I did not cry in front of Busy- but once we were away from the classroom I bawled, in fact truth be told I am crying now looking at that picture below. I have had some lovely lovely text messages/ tweets today from friends near and far. Thank you- you know who you are.
So obviously I have spent a lot of time today thinking about being a mother and what that means. I wanted to acknowledge being a mother as not just something a woman does after she has given birth. I suppose I have chosen to look at mothering like this because I am adopted and have always felt I only have one mother. The one who loved me every day, and still does, the one that was there every day when I got home from school. The one who wiped my tears and read me stories in bed at night.
So I decided to celebrate what it is to mother. There are probably many more words and I had lots of lists but this is what I finally decided on.
I also had some help from bloggy friends with this one , I cannot remember who helped or who I asked but I remember getting a few replies from my call out so for those of you who did offer some words THANK YOU and I am so sorry if I haven't said thank you personally!
What do you think?
Thank you to the two people who pointed out the missing comma, I have looked at this a hundred times and not noticed it! Annoying!!
So these ones are not for sale however there will be some soon WITH COMMAS!!!
