Happy Mother’s Day – a poem from my daughter

by | Mar 30, 2014

This is me, as seen through my seven year old daughter’s eyes:

My Mum
She’s a:
Vacuum cleaner
Potato peeler
A dish cleaner
A bedtime reader
A hard worker cleaner
A hugler
A cuddler
A school taker
A cool maker
My Super Mum

Apparently I do a lot of cleaning. Don’t know where she gets that idea from!

Hope all mums, wherever you are, have a lovely Mother’s Day and receive equally lovely, thoughtful gifts from your children.

      Yeah I noticed that and I don’t know why either. You’ve got it to look forward to then. Do you think you’ll get any unusual gifts such as this, I wonder?
