Yesterday my two boys went to town and came back with these gifts, incorporating their love of Pokemon and my love of crochet with Mother’s Day.
Gifts from My Boys
It was my eldest son’s idea to go into town. It’s something he likes to do occasionally, but he’s never taken The Little Man Before. I was a bit concerned but the Little Man turned to me and said ” What are you worried about Mum, it’s only two autistic boys going to town together?” I know I shouldn’t worry. It turned out that I’d been the least responsible adult, I’d been working with The Little Man making cup cakes for his grandma. They had gone out about 1pm and I’d forgotten to given him his lunch! Thankfully, Eldest son treated him to a meal at Mc Donald’s while they were out. They were back a couple of hours later bearing gifts. (Of course they had gifts for themselves too!)
Mother’s Day 2022
How cruel is it to have the clocks go forward on Mother’s Day! No, lie in for me, getting up at 8am is already late enough. It’s now nearly lunch time and everyone else is in bed apart from me and the Little Man. I’ve done all the housework and put a wash on.
Star made me some cupcakes. She doesn’t do much cooking but loves to make cake and bread.
My eldest daughter doesn’t get paid until tomorrow but I’m sure she will treat me.
I wanted to go to the cemetery this weekend but I should have gone yesterday when it was warmer. I don’t think I saw Graham for more than 10 minutes yesterday though, so we never had time. If the weather isn’t too bad next week I’ll pop down and make sure it’s looking tidy.
I think I’ve been through it all over the years, Mother’s Day alone when my kids have been too young to understand, Mother’s Day estranged from my own Mother, Mother’s Day where I’ve received nothing and felt totally unappreciated, Mother’s Day without my Mum after she died. I think maybe the only one I have done is Mother’s Day without a child, my children have always been my greatest achievements in my life, I feel so lucky to have them.
