Mummy Moments Of Joy [ WEEK 1 ]

Since becoming a mum I've had the privilege of spending so many valuable days with my little P, I feel lucky to be able to have anytime with her. I am however human and some days have been really tough and tears of a desperately drained mummy have been shed. I get that overwhelming feeling of just wanting to hide away and have some time to myself but they are just short term feelings. Most days I get such a overwhelming feeling of joy being able to be this little girls mum that feeling takes over any stress, any upset or frustration. All of it vanishes when I see my Penny laugh or even just watching her playing with her cereal bowls.

We have had so much fun together and I have so many little moments of joy that I just wanted to share with you. Sometimes its good to take notice of the little things that you wouldn't normally appreciate.


1. You love your animals

Arms reaching up, standing on your tippie toes with your little face trying to look upon the kitchen sides. Getting your chin as high up as you can just to get a peek. Snowbell you say in your own little toddler babbling speech. Our little furry pet hamster, a pet who you never even knew existed nor noticed until the last month or two. Yet these days any time you walk into the kitchen you run straight over to that kitchen side to say hello. We pick you up and sit you on the kitchen side where you get so excited you squeal and laugh.


2. Cowboys best friend

Co-sleeping with mummy, we decided to bring your woody toy to bed with us as a treat. At first it seemed like the most awful of ideas with you playing like it was the start of the day, asif you'd had a whole packet of giant chocolate buttons. Who's stupid idea was it to bring Woody to bed I thought? Oh yeah...MINE! Just as I started to get frustrated as I'd been laying there trying to get to you sleep, you did something. Something that blew me away with such a warming sense of pride. You lay your head down to sleep, sat up and pulled his string so he said a very over played phrase, then you lay down, sat back up but this time you picked up woody, gave him a kiss on the nose and you place him down asif you were putting him to bed. Once more you lay your head but this time you lay your head to sleep.

3. Mama your here

Waking up to your child each day is a blessing, a joyous moment we all look forward to as parents. If you co-sleep with your child your'll know how it feels to wake up to your child laying peacefully asleep right there next to you. Snoring away, and watching their little fingers flickering away from dreaming. While I sat there just quietly watching you Penny you awoke slowly, your eyes opened and you stared at me for just a second. Then all of a sudden your eyes opened even just slightly that bit more and you sat bolt right up and said MAMA! MAMA! Just so happy to have me there.

4. Walking on a Wednesday

 Wednesday was the only day really that I got to spend with you, I have been working so much. It killed me knowing I had not been able to spend any real time with you. Come Wednesday on my day off, I made sure we had a fun day. I dressed you up in all your winter gear, so much so that even a passer by stopped to coo over you saying that 'you looked like you were going to climb Mount Everest'. You did, you were so bloody cute and you knew it. Smiling away while you ran in your little wellies down a hill that you looked like you were about to fall down from at any second. You had such innocents about you and looked so happy, but not as happy as I was to have spent that day with you.

These are just four of my favourite moments of the week, and I have many more I could've mentioned but hey how much did you want to read before I sent you stir crazy!?

  3. Taking time to appreciate the little things is actually am amazing thing you can do for your long term well being. You are building up your mental resilience so when you do have those challenging moments in life your brain can more easily switch to positive thought. Keep it up. ;) your daughter is beautiful and you clearly have lots to be grateful for. Xxx

    1. Exactly and I find I forget about the smaller cute things so this way I can remember some every week. Even if I have a bad week it'll be good for me to sit and think about the positives x

    1. It never used to be, she did well in her room until around 7 months. She woke every hour, wanting her dummy, drinking countless amounts of comfort milk. Or she's just cry and cry. Now co sleeping she goes the full night. It is prettttty adorable having her there I always give her a kiss and a hug when I go to sleep x

  6. Aww she is such a little cutie, I agree with the co-sleeping, Arch jumps into my bed about 2/3 nights a week and waking up next to him is lovely. It's so nice to have a break, every mummy needs it and I find it makes me a better mummy once I've had a quick ten minute / an hours break, like I'm all refreshed :-) xx

    1. She just sleeps so much better when cosleeping. If she's in her cot she wakes nearly every hour unsettled wanting her dummy going through countless milk for comfort. I feel it's cruel and we tried for so long but she just seemed so miserable. Now she just sleeps through I can even go downstairs after she's asleep and enjoy my evening. She's able to get in and out the bed by herself and IF she does awake she stands by the baby gate and shouts for me x

  8. How lovely - I kind of co-sleep with Pickle - he goes to sleep in his bed, but comes into me at any point in the night. I have to admit I love waking up to him next to me - if I wake first I listen to him breathing. It IS wonderful. Kaz x
