I of course spent Mothers Day with my beautiful children but my own Mum was also in the back of mind. I did not see, speak or hear from her over the weekend. Myself and my Mum have always had a very up and down relationship and we have parted ways many times. At the moment we are unfortunately going through another rough patch. I sent a Mothers Day card and focused on my own day with my children. Over the past few years I have tried many times to mend things or to push through it for the sake of my children.
I will hold my hands up and say that I have got upset, I have said things I regret but because I just want to get on, life is too short. My parents adore their grandchildren but sometimes I feel like they only pop back in my life for that reason. I am made to feel like an inconvenience which isn't nice at all. They live three hours away which really doesn't help. I don't want to argue, fall out or have any kind of bad feeling between myself and my Mum but it hasn't been great for such a long time that it's just the way it is. I know in a few weeks we will talk again and the issues won't be addressed which means it's only a matter of time before it happens again. I think if it has taught me anything since I have had my babies is that I will always be there for them no matter what. Unconditionally.
On Sunday we made the hour's drive to Weston Super Mare and the weather was amazing. The smiles on their faces and how happy they were completely made my day. As much as I appreciate the sentiment behind Mothers Day, everyday I appreciate how lucky I am to have these two in my life so it's not super important to me (not in a bah humbug way).
I think one day we will move to the seaside, it's just my favourite, happy place to be. The kids were absolutely shattered and both fell asleep on the way home. We went out for dinner when we got back which was lovely as it's very rare that we eat out. Family time is so important to me and I value our weekends together more than anything.
You can find a short vlog below of our trip to the beach. I love seeing the kids having such a good time and it has made me so excited for the summer.
If your a Mummy and your reading this I hope you had a great Mothers Day and that you were thoroughly spoilt.
