The things they say and do – Mother’s Day

The kids were talking about Mother’s Day yesterday morning. KayCee (ever the thoughtful one!) asked why there’s a Mother’s Day and a Father’s Day but no children’s day because it wasn’t fair that children didn’t get presents?
I said there is a children’s day, it’s called Christmas!
She thought about what I’d said then came back and said, but Christmas can’t be kids day ‘cos you and dad get presents too so I think there should be a day just for kids, called kid’s day and we get presents for being kids like you get presents for being a mum! 😀

Ella made me melt the other day when out of the blue she said, ‘you’re wonderful mummy and you have very lovely hair’.
She got a big hug and kiss 😀

Aiden came in the kitchen while I was cooking spaghetti bolognese and said, mum, that smells delicious. I’m soooo pleased you’re my mum ‘cos you’re the best cook ever 😀

I love my babies 😀

I’m so pleased I remembered to make a note of some of the things the kids have said to me through the week and I’m going to try to remember to do it more often!
I’m linking up with Chris at Thinly Spread for, The Things They Say And Do, linky 🙂

      It makes my day when any of them say something nice, out of the blue. It's especially lovely when you're having a rubbish day and they have the power to cheer you right up! 🙂

    KayCaee sounds very difficult to argue with! It's fantastic when you hear things like thatisn't it? Makes any difficulties worthwhile 🙂
