Being a mother . . . is a full time job which never stops, which you can't switch off from and which lasts a lifetime.
Being a mother . . . is being a nurse.
Being a mother . . . is living under the spell of a person who will never know how powerful that spell is.
Being a mother . . . is being a teacher.
Being a mother . . . is being a giver of cuddles, a shoulder to cry on and a maker of magic.
Being a mother . . . is to forever walk the world while a part of you walks around it separately.
Being a mother . . . is being a confidante.
Being a mother . . . is entertaining and frustrating each and every day.
Being a mother . . . is about instilling confidence and strength and love so that one day you can let your little birds fly and know they'll be okay.

Being a mother . . . is an absolute privilege.
Being a mother . . . is a beautiful thing.

    1. It's by far the best thing I've even done, or will ever do. Everything else just sort of pales in comparison really.
      And I was quite pleased I had that many pictures as I didn't think there were many of the two of us together as I tend to be the one snapping. X
