I AM MUMMY was my mantra at 3am this morning as I was scrubbing regurgitated dinner off the carpet. I took Jonah downstairs to recover with his duvet, watch some Netflix and have a rocket ice lolly for his sore throat. As I was walking back upstairs to begin the unpleasant task of cleaning up the mess, it hit me that what had just happened was exactly the kind of thing that kids remember from their childhood. It got me thinking about all these things that you do as a Mummy (or Daddy) that make you the extraordinary person that your child sees you as. So as I was scrubbing, I wrote a little something in my head for you to enjoy:
I am Mummy. I am the cleaner of vomit, the wiper of tears, the kisser of bruised knees. I am the first point of call, the name that you cry out, the one who will make it all better.
I am Mummy, the one who works behind the scenes, organises, cleans, plans to-do lists as I fall asleep. I am the maker of birthday cakes, the tickle monster, the storyteller and singer of songs.
I am Mummy. Unsure of my abilities and actually, capabilities, obsessive risk assessor and over-reactor. I’m there for the late-nights, the early mornings (and everything in between!) The picnics in the garden, the snacks on demand, the yoghurts and crisps that you insist on mashing into the sofa.
The days are long and tiring, but I am Mummy, I am invincible with you to keep me going.
Always remember my beautiful babies that I am yours forever and always... Because I am your Mummy.
