Mamas you are SPECIAL..X


Spend as much time as you can, having fun with your little ones. Be slow to anger, quick to forgive, and hug them lots and lots. Read with them, play with them, enjoy them.

Slow down to their pace, take time to enjoy nature together, just amble along, don't hurry. Be honest with them, without burdening them with too much for young minds. Read to them at bedtime. Bake with them, let them help you around the home.

Don't wish the next stage to come...it will come soon enough. Keep your sense of humour, and soak up every moment with them. Praise them. Love them. Love them with every fibre of your being. Give it your all.

A time will come when your little ones will become big ones, launching themselves into the world...moving on in life...flying the nest. Nothing quite prepares you for the empty nest feeling...but deep down you will have an unbreakable bond between you, which will keep your hearts connected, even over hundreds of miles.

So, rejoice in your full nest...gather your chicks under your wings and nestle down.
