I have been a shocker at posting lately..please forgive me!
My beautiful baby girl keeps me busy with her stealth missions to destroy my house.
Today it was a little quiet as I cooked dinner. I'm on to her now! I throw down the tongs in the kitchen and begin to call her name..."Ruby, Ruby". No answer.
I turn the corner into the bathroom.
I found her.
I can see a cream all over her hands and face.
Dear Lord, I quietly pray. What is it today?
Well today my friends it was... FAKE TAN!!! OMG!!!
I am tempted to leave it on her and have her live with the consequences.
Then I realise, it would just make me look like a neglectful Mum who doesn't wash her children properly or worse...that I only bath her once a month!!!!Immediately I throw her in the bath (not literally) and begin to scrub. My face is stern and cross. I raised my voice and did the Mum rant.
Inside I'm actually smiling.
These are the things that I will remember for a lifetime.
The saying goes.."you'll look back and laugh at this". I didn't have to wait too long. My laugh bubbled up inside and I had to let it out! You probably think that I make these things up but honestly it's all true!!
No pictures today as I was a little concerned about fake tan and white bathroom tiles and sink. I don't think my husband would understand brown tiles, fake tan and a photo shoot in the middle of the chaos!! lol
I'm sure that my Mum can look back and laugh at some shockers that I had.
So today I give thanks to my special Mum who has seen all of this before.
My Mum and I a few years back
My Mum and I a few more years back!!
I love my Mum stacks. She is my best friend and I always wanted to be like her. She has a heart of gold and I believe loves us more and more each day! Thanks for being a great Mum!! Here are a few pictures I found for you....
I loved kisses!!!
My Mum and her Cheribs. (i'm the one with the bowl hair cut and fringe.I won't hold that against her..she tells me that was the fashion and I was trendy. I'm not sure if I'm ready to believe her!)
Me and my cheribs.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
my beautiful friends. I hope you are spoilt and have a wonderful day!!!
For my Mum....
In so many different ways.
You make me feel important
With encouragement and praise.
To comfort and to care.
I know I'm in your thoughts;
Your love follows me everywhere.
And given so generously.
I love you, my wonderful mother;
You're a heaven-sent blessing to me.
