Mothers day. What you done today?
our two year old son stayed at grannies last night so we got to sleep in til midday with the three week old.. (other than the regular waking and feeding and a couple of hours of screaming mad colic late last night)
then it was tantrums with the toddler when he returned from grandmas.. followed by a drive across the moor and a bit of a walk by the river.. round to the other grannies for another tantrum followed by a nice bit of grub and a fairly chilled out evening..
three week old son has just slept most of the afternoon and evening though so we’re expecting another busy night..
We gave Mrs Yunki a new coat she’s been after as reward for her sterling services to motherhood..Posted 6 years agofenredMember
Sent my mother a card and some cash in it as she always moans that flowers are a waste of money…rang the mother this morning to wish her hmd, got thanked for card/cash and was told she’d bought flowers and chocolates with it….message received and understood…glad I didn’t make the 120 mile round trip and elected to ride my bike in the sunshine instead 🙄Posted 6 years agoSandwichSubscriber
Cooked for Mrs S. Expensive steak, with homemade chips. A homemade lemon pudding for afters.Posted 6 years ago
My mum is also in the cemetery, will call in and sit with her tomorrow on the way home. The grave is in a great spot with a good view now the cement works chimney is down.LimboJimboSubscriber
Spent the day in the Neonatal unit with our week old son and his Mum. I was supposed to be taking them home today but he had a bit of a temperature so his parole was rejected. He managed to get his Mum a card though, she commented on his unusually neat handwriting.Posted 6 years agosingletracksurferSubscriber
kids chose the flowers, made cards & painted plant pots (with plants in), I ordered mug with pictures of kids on, got a load of new pictures printed.
my mum also stayed at our house, and got flowers, mags & film, home made card and i made 2 lots of breakfasts in bed. really surprised myself with that effort.
then went on a 8 hrs bike ride to readdress tge balance, while mrs sts visited her mum 🙂Posted 6 years agoLimboJimboSubscriber
To be honest he looks like a bit of a bruiser at 6lbs 3oz compared to the tiny premature babies on the unit. He had a bit of a rough start as he was born via c-section with no heartbeat. I was in theatre and to hear the nightmare call for a crash team is a memory that will never leave me. It took eight minutes to start his little heart which, let me assure you is a long time from where his Mum and I were.
He has made astonishing progress over the last week and despite little setbacks and an impending MRI scan, taking him home is now imminent. So it is fair to say our first Mothers day is bit special.
Anyhoo, as I’m a new (proud) Dad, I’m sure you’ll indulge me another pic!Posted 6 years agoneninjaMember
Got up with the kids who were excited and decided to get up at 5.55am!!! Got them to go back to bed until 7.15am – not quite the Sunday sleep in I hoped for.
Then made smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for my wife in bed. She then opened the boys presents and homemade cards (8 and 6).
We then went to Beamish open museum for the day which was great, followed by a mad dash home for Max’s drum lesson. Pretty busy day.
My mum was away seeing my brother down South so didn’t see her today, spoke on the phone though.Posted 6 years agomboySubscriber
Another one here that’s not had to worry for the past 18 years… Shame as she was a great woman!
But even if she was around, she’d probably have been far more interested in me being out enjoying myself, having fun, than sitting around fussing over her… Which is good cos I was out riding, having LOTS of fun! 😀Posted 6 years agoGrimyMember
I bought my Mum some fancy champagne flutes from John Lewis’s as shes never owned a set. Chucked in a card and a bottle of champagne too and she was very happy. Dad was pretty chuffed too I think.
Went to see my Nan too. Took a card and flowers, but I needent bother, shes just happy to see the wife and I for the afternoon. Trying not to choke on our tea with laughter at all the slightly non PC things the older generation come out with, and the casual farting. 😆Posted 6 years agothegreatapeMember
My wife got a lie in until 9, the kids gave her cards, and a CD which I wanted, and I cooked her favourite dinner for dinner. I’m just in from work so I’m going to go to bed and see if I can make it a hat trick. So her day is complete.
We sent flowers to both our mums, I rang mine this morning for a mother’s day hello and a chat.
Funny thing is, I’ll be ringing her again later today to see that she’s ok as it’s 15 years to the day since she was unexpectedly widowed.Posted 6 years agoloweySubscriber
I took the bike up Harter Fell in the lakes and had a chat with me owd mum who I lost last year (couple of weeks before Mothers Day). Had a moment to reflect on where I have come over the last 12 months, and told her all about it. I think she would have been pretty happy.Posted 6 years ago
