A note to Hunny. On the eve of your 3rd Birthday

hunnycakeMy little ray of sunshine

I watch you sleeping in your bed

Your little mind peacefully resting

Exhausted from the world around

You have challenged me more than I can say

To the moon, the stars and beyond

But you make me happy to be me

You have taught me that there is no such thing as a perfect mother

Hopefully I am just enough for you

I am not a perfect mother and you are not a perfect child

Especially when times are grey

Together, somehow we work it out… survive each day

Laughing, crying, screaming and smiling

Squeezing each other like today is the last day

Today will never be again

Tomorrow you will wake older

Full of confidence for another day

We will do our best





You are my sunshine

    That is really beautiful – and so true of all kids! Keep enjoying every day 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by. Will do my best! Husband is off to butlins for an 80’s weekend (very out of character) so I’m home alone with kids, stupidly emotional and on comic relief night! At least I can have a cry at it without feeling silly.
