When talking to children about their parents, especially the younger ones, you can get all sorts of funny replies as to why they love them. I remember that we once had to write about it in primary school and I wrote:
'I love my mum because she cleans my room'
Oh, the things we think of when we are small.
After thinking about this, I went on to ask Thomas why he loved me. His reply:
'I love you because you give me food,
I love daddy more though cos' he gives me sweets'
Nothing about how much I bake with him, play with him, look after him whilst daddy is at work. No, daddy is better as he gives out the sweets. Kids eh?!
Monsoon have created this cute film full of children talking about their mums, why they love them and wishing their mums and Happy Mother's Day, how sweet!
In truth, my mum (and dad for that matter) have been such a great help to me over the years.
Not just for bringing me up and, of course, cleaning my room, but even as I grew up. They paid for the whole of my husband and my wedding, they wanted to follow tradition they said, but I actually think that they knew that we couldn't afford to have the bash we wanted paying for it ourselves.
When I had Thomas, they could see that I was shattered (what new mum isn't) and offered to look after him overnight every Tuesday so me and the hubster could catch up on some sleep.
I love you mum because you are always there for me and my children. And just because you are you... lovely...
