Happy Mothers Day to all the Happy Mothers out there. And now you Happy Mothers can stop reading as there’s nothing more here for you!
I’m writing now only for the mothers who aren’t feeling entirely happy today. Hello friends.
Mothers Day can really get my goat… it’s always portrayed as Happy Mothers Day. Harumph.
Well, I am starting a campaign for all the other mothers out there. Lets hear it for:
Tired Mothers Day
Grumpy Mothers Day
Lost-My-Sense-Of-Humour Mothers’ Day
Single Mothers Day
Multiple Mothers Day
And lets raise an especially big cheers for the really, really hard-working mums for:
Special Needs Mothers Day
And another big cheer for all the mums who have bravely faced the facts and asked for help to get over anxiety and depression. Well done those mums and lets hear it for:
Recovering Mothers Day
Most of us mums are all these mothers, one type on one day and another on the next. Hooray for all mums and hooray for diversity. If you’ve read this far you’re a mum who knows that motherhood and family life is not all beer and skittles and that beds of roses, even bunches of roses, can be few and far between. But lets hope today that there is something special done, some shows of appreciation for all mums.
So here’s to us all. Raise your glasses.
Happy Real Mothers Day!
