Hayden's Birth Photo

My Mother’s Day – Being a Mother

So this was my 3rd mothers day… 2nd official mothers day and it was lovely.
I got to lay in, had a big breakfast and actually took the day really slow and did nothing. We planned to go somewhere spontaneously but because we had such a chilled day we ended up leaving the house pretty late so we ended up going local.
I posted a photo on IG on a quote I found on pinterest and added it to one of my photos of me and Hayden – I absolutely love it.

 I still can’t believe I’m a mother sometimes, just thinking about it makes me emotional – Its a full time job, it hard work and a lot of the time I’m completely winging it. But FACT I wouldn’t change it for the world. Hayden says ‘mum’ on average about 200 times a day even when I have acknowledged him and I’m looking him dead in his eyes and by golly geewizz it drives me bonkers but in all honesty I can image not hearing it. Rovi takes Hayden out a lot and leaves me at home so I can get Port Avenue & blogging work done and I miss his little voice telling me he wants to watch Hot Dog (Mickey Mouse Club House), George (Curious George), Let it Go (Frozen) all his favorites by the way. Being a mum is a scary thought, I don’t think it will ever leave me, that scary feeling because I always want to make sure I’m doing the right thing for him and so far so good *touch wood* and I hope that I can continue.

My mum was again in Barbados for Mother’s Day but I had a genius idea where I would have flowers delivered her home address. What a great idea but not when a company advertises that they ship to Barbados and they actually don’t & don’t bother to tell you until the day before with a stupid bog standard email … Thanks for stressing me out and wasting my Saturday Serenata Flowers! I hate those companies that take your money and then say yeah sorry we can’t do that any more but you will have to wait 3-5 days for your money! Grrrr

On a MUCH better and brighter note I eventually found a new company and I was to shout from the rooftop how grateful I am for them they got me out of a horrid pickle and made my mum one of the happiest women on mothers day. My mum means the world to me, she has been through so much crap physically and mentally and she is a truly amazing, strong & inspirational woman – I love her to bits! I only want to make her happy and if I can’t be there on her special day then I’m mega happy that flowers can make her feel special.
Thank you www.caribflowers.com for the amazing customer service (Jessica), perfect delivery and beautiful flowers. I would highly recommend using this company if you want to send flowers to the Caribbean. My mum was sooo fregging happy, she now expects this all the time – Hmmmm.

I managed to walk her through taking a photo and uploading them to Facebook – bless her!
