COMFORT AND A MOTHER'S LOVE

Image via Pinterest

Urgh. So I'm officially on day three of being ill, not the best way to start the new month but F's super virus seems to have floored me. After having sniffles and a sore throat on monday, I went through shivers, chills and a fever before calling in the big guns to help. Yep, I called my mum. Just as F had been reaching out to me for comfort and love, having me mop his brow during his fever, I realised how much I needed mine.

So yesterday at crazy o'clock in the morning, I feebly reached for the phone and being the super mum she is, she arrived with her arms full of healthy soups and treats to make me well again. I wonder whether my boy will reach for the phone in the same way? Would he ever need that motherly comfort in adulthood? It's funny to think how my role will change as he grows into a man, and I wonder whether I'll ever be ready for it.

After spending most of yesterday in bed while F and nanny hung out, I'm now feeling significantly better. Not well but hopefully not far off, as I have a date night planned courtesy of the husband and a weekend away with friends in London. As the house has been stocked up with fresh fruit, juices, lentils, vegetables and herbal drinks, me and F are planning on chilling at home, eating well and staying cosy.

  1. aww you've had a hard time of it lately with colds and such haven't you :( I totally get that feeling! My mum probably isn't the type that would do this for me in adulthood ha! But I kind of hope I will be to Wilf x

    1. lol yes in some ways I'm lucky my mum still sees me as a kid. I hope that F will call me when he's poorly when he's older, i'd be straight round with chicken soup and tea x

  2. I always miss my mum when I'm feeling unwell. I think you never stop needing your mother that way. Hoping this thing takes a turn for the better soon.

  6. Haha I don't get on with my mum at all so I wouldn't phone her if she was the only person to help, she's not really the maternal type! I really like to think my kids will phone me though and I will be happy to go and look after them no matter how old they are. Hope you feel better soon, being ill when you are a parent is the worst x

    1. It certainly was a challenge with F at home alone, but thankfully me and my mum are quite close so i can pull in favours :) x

  7. oh dear, not you too! It's horrible isn't it, I totally didn't expect to be knocked out by it as much as I was and poor Theo's still suffering! I think I've got through half a ton of ginger in the past few weeks!

    So lovely that your mum could come and help out, I always feel a bit helpless when I'm ill and there's nothing like your mummy to make you feel better!

    Hope you get well soon! xx

  9. Ah, that's lovely. You never stop needing your own Mama - I remember peering through a slightly opened door and seeing my Mum sitting on the edge of my Grandma's bed having a little cry once. A mother-daughter connection is very special. It's like a steel thread that runs right through the ages and connects us all. Hurrah for Mums!
