Mother’s Day is coming and with it a small ray of hope in the otherwise gloom that is mothering. Aw, I’m kidding, right? Right?
Look, I’m really not a big fan of Mother’s Day. I’m a bit of a grinch about all of the random ‘days’ actually – valentine’s day, mother’s day, and definitely father’s day.
Last year I tried to ban Mother’s Day and it was a disaster. I told the kids not to buy me anything at the school mother’s day stall. I figured that after 13 years of parenting, I have enough “World’s Greatest Mum” mugs to last me the distance. I honestly just did not want to have to deal with the extra clutter. So I said,
“Just make me something, that would mean the most to me.”
The faces. They were gutted because (a) I didn’t realise that they LOVE choosing me something from the school mother’s day stall, it’s practically the highlight of their year and (b) they did not want to make me something.
I very quickly realised that mother’s day is not really about the mother at all. Rather, like all things in life, it is about the children. It’s about showing them how good it feels to treat someone you love. How lovely it is to think of a parent as a person for a day. And the joy of saying thank you.
So, of course, this year I will dutifully hand over three lots of $5 and take my chances.
Uberkate will kiss it all better
While I’m kept busy on MD opening my notepad and pen set or toiletry bag or 14th “”World’s Greatest Mum” mug, you might be opening something rather more special.
God, wouldn’t that be SO NICE?
This perfect prize is a personalised Small Medium & Large sterling silver Signature Ubercircle Set valued at $565.
Entries close on 30 April so Kate’s team have lots of time to send it to you ready to unwrap on MD. You can pretend it’s from the children, Kate won’t mind.
