I wonder if You learn to live without it Or maybe It just fades away Perhaps the yearning Is always there And you learn To keep it boxed up inside Right now We’re stuck together Like glue Morning, noon and night So I always wonder What it’ll be like Spending time with you When you’re older Will I yearn For you to ask To be picked up on my hip Will I miss Those squishy, squeezy Toddler cuddles Will I be chatting away But thinking of how Every night, I’d watch you fall asleep Or how we’d Snuggle up in bed Waking in a tangle of two bodies; The best feeling in the world Will it always be there? The memories of our days together Tugging away at my heart Wanting to pull you in for a squeeze Snuggle on the sofa But keeping it locked up safe in my heart Knowing I can’t do that all day long Or will it slowly fade away? I’ve got a feeling Somewhere deep inside It will never leave. #motherhood

I wonder if other mums feel the same When some days you just forget About milk You’re so busy And excited With life When you were a tiny baby I’d dream about these days Not being tethered So needed Every second of the day But then when it Starts happening What we’ve wanted all along For you to be confident And independent It just takes me By surprise I’m happy But I’m sad And I wonder if Other mums get this feeling too It started out so hard And now is second nature Our time to connect And calm It’s the natural way of life Of course it’s going this way Just sad It’ll be the end of something That was our very favourite But Oh so excited for what comes next. #breastfeeding

I want you to have this book forever To give it to your little one And them Give it to theirs Days like today Are never perfect to me But every day there is usually A moment or two Of pure joy A shining brilliance That I wish I could hold on to And remember But I rarely do As we roll onto the next day Plodding on each day One foot in front of another So this book Is for that When you get one of the moments You wish would last forever Pop them in here In pen, pencil or crayon Scrawl And scribble And cross out Keep it knocking around Use it as a coaster Make sure it’s near Let little hands touch it And fill it up. Not perfect. Not pristine. But full Of your life and theirs. (20% off discount ends tomorrow use code MOTHER) #motherhood #mothersday

The expectation Of what Mother’s Day Should be That really Don’t matter And don’t have much to do with How I mother Or how my girl thinks of me Really Squeezing in Seeing parents Looking after grandparents Busy And not a quiet moment But so happy they’re still here It’s just a day So chucking expectations Out the window I’m just glad We had quiet snuggles When we woke up, That I’ve got you Smiling back at me And I get to be your mum. #mothersday #motherhood

On the Friday before Mother’s Day last year, @mot@mother_of_daughters shared my work with her lovely followers. Only a few weeks before had I taken the leap and started sharing my drawings with anyone. She didn’t have to. She didn’t know me. But she shared it. (In the photo is one of my first ever drawings, and my newest, of twins, inspired by Clemmie.) Lots of lovely people came over to say hello. Look at my drawings. Read my words. Buy themselves something for Mother’s Day. And they stayed. Settling into our corner, chatting all things motherhood after the kids have gone to sleep. Good stuff. Crap stuff. So. Now marks a year of me doing this thing. Still getting up before her and drawing whilst she sleeps. Still writing words and packing orders once she’s in bed for the night. Trying to make sense of the most euphoric, beautiful moments of motherhood; those gut wrenching times when I feel guilty about something I’ve done or the bone tiredness I feel to my core. And that it’s all worth it when those tiny arms squeeze around my neck for a cuddle. Thank you if you’ve stuck around to chat all things motherhood or bought a drawing. It means the world that I get to do it. And I get to show my girl you can tread your own path. And thank you @mother_of_daughters for sharing a year ago. Since it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, the 20% discount is still running with code MOTHER til Monday. #motherhood

I wonder how many mums Are doing the same thing right now Watching these tiny beings Drift right off to sleep As we finally slow down The rushing The whirring The constant to-doing And then... Did I play enough? Was I patient enough? Did I get down on her level enough? Did she have a good day? I guess I did my best She is loved And she knows And she is happy I’ll take in this moment The stillness The quiet And l’ll give that little forehead Just one more little kiss. #motherhood
