Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful mummies out there!
My morning started with a kiss from hubby before he left for work.
Not long after the kids woke up and we had breakfast. I got them ready for church.
As I finished dressing I went into the kitchen to find my eldest (4.5yr old girl) apologising for spilling the beetroot container! She had stained her white fancy dress and some of the floor with beetroot juice. I had left the container on the bench but I did recall having a lid on it.
She apologised, saying she was trying to help me clean. God Bless her.
I rinsed her dress and popped it into the dryer so she could still wear it out.
She gave me the present (a little pink led torch) from her preschool stall along with some other items made at school. I had tears in my eyes. It was my first official present made by her and I was full of emotion. We hung them up on the wall in fron tof my sewing table.
Church was good and I didn't even worry when my youngest girl popped the lid off her sipper cup and spilled cold water down her top and half of the bottom of my jeans. Luckily my nephew found the spare clothes I had in the nappy bag and we were ok for the rest of church.
After a nice Sunday lunch with the in-laws and some pregnancy talks with my sis in law it's time to just rest at home before another dinner outing at my mums. I just hope it's not as eventful as this morning but with kids you can never tell what's going to happen.
I am just so thankful to be a mother and even though days can be hard I cherish the moments where I think "wow, these are my kids and I gave birth to them: Me, three times I gave birth!!!" I am proud in my own eyes and having that extra bit of praise from friends or family can really brighten up my outlook on life. So please, don't be shy and give another mother some hugs, kisses and kind words for a job that IS hard as it looks!!!!!!! XOX
p.s I also made another one of these nursing tops in my spare (ahem) time i.e while the kids and hubby were all asleep!
The material is a kind of spandex with, I think, polyester? I had originally planned it to be a wrap dress hence why I had about 2 metres of it. I used the same process as the other nursing top using New Look 6697. For the pieces covering my belly I just placed an existing maternity top on top of the material and cut out a bigger rectangle. It's actually tighter around my belly while the other top was loose so I won't be comfy in this until I give birth or lose some belly.
I entered my Pomegranate top in Made by Rae's Spring Top Sew-a-long Contest so please vote for me if you make it there!
Here's to a wonderful Mothers Day.
