10 Mummy Moments to Savour

10 mummy moments to savour

Do you ever stop and spot the ordinary moments in your days that are actually pretty extraordinary? The ones that you may do over and over and over, most days, but they make you feel happy and warm inside every time anyway? These are the moments to savour, to notice, as I know they’ll fly by. For me, it’s things like..

1. Early morning snuggles in bed with my children. Boo tends to get up then, but sometimes she’ll come back upstairs to find me giving Little Man his milk and climb back in to hug her little brother or ask me to play some music so that they can dance on the bed together.

2. As I clean away after mealtimes, Boo enticing Little Man out of the way to go and play with her and he’ll toddle excitedly after her, both of them laughing.

point3. Grabbing Boo and scooping her onto my lap when she leasts expects it, for cuddles – she resists far more than Little Man, so I feel good when I succeed!

4. Strolling in the park, or round the shops, and partaking in our random and funny chats.

5. Tickle-time. Of course.

6. Listening to Boo ‘reading’ to Little Man, and trying to teach him how to talk.

7. Impromptu family dance sessions in the kitchen while we wait for the dinner to cook – Time Warp anyone?!

8. The children waiting for their bath-time of an evening – always upstairs, with dimmed lights, cosy in our rooms, full of giggles, stories and lately, hide and seek!

9. Reading time. Any book, any story, anywhere, any child! I love these moments.

10. Watching them sleeping. So peaceful.

It’s in the every day moments that I can feel at my happiest. It’s these moments that I suspect will number amongst the best of my life. I think that when I’m old and grey (well, I’m pretty grey now, but you get what I mean..!), I’ll look back on my life and remember these times fondly and wish that I could have them back. So I will cherish them now, and make every second count.

  1. You’re so right, it’s those little moments everyday that make life special. Littlest was jumping in the leaves earlier and asked me to join him-the look of happiness on his face when we jumped together was just magical.

  2. I definitely agree with you! My husband and I also call this “small joys”. When things get a little bit tough, moments like these and the small joys in life will help you get by. #MagicMoments.

  3. What a lovely way to look at it. Life can sometimes seem full of mundane little tasks, but finding so much pleasure in them will ensure that everyone enjoys them as much as they should 🙂 #MagicMoments

    1. It’s the best way to look at it, as I’ve no doubt that in a few years, I’ll look back and long for these little things x

  4. This is all so true, and so important. One of the biggest changes for me over the last year has been taking the time to stop and notice these moments, and like you they are the most special to me. Lots of magical moments to treasure xx #MagicMoments

    1. I find that I need them. They make me instantly cheerier and calm, and if the day’s not going well, a quick cuddle or dance around lifts me straightaway 🙂

    1. They are very close, which I’m hoping continues as they grow older. At the moment, though, I’m enjoying watching them 🙂

  5. Such a beautiful post, I know exactly what you mean. I treasure those dancing round the living room moments and adore it when my boy holds my hands while he jumps on the bed, a look of pure glee on his face. And of course, watching them sleeping never grows old, even as they do!

  8. This is a lovely lovely post. I would agree with all of these. But I also love snuggling with Little Miss on the sofa and walking with her little hand in mine. You are right though these are the moments that mean the most but can go by unappreciated. Thanks for reminding me to saviour them. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
