The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Being A Mum Is Glorious & Thankless …

We often take our Mum’s for granted, choosing to either ignore – or simply not see – the numerous sacrifices they continually make to aid us in living a better life.

They ask for nothing and yet give us everything.

Just because they just want us to feel good about ourselves.





As we grow up … develop … they are always there, looking on.

Living in a state of quiet, constant conflict.

There’s the undeniable sense of pride as the see us take bigger and bolder steps into the big, bad world …

But it’s always mirrored by a quiet sense of concern that along the way, we might experience or endure a pain that they can’t instantly whisk away.

With a kiss, a hug, a word or a plaster.

Mothers don’t want us to hurt.

Their protective instinct never fades.

They constantly and continually want the best for us and they’re selfless in that goal.

So next time you complain she’s treating you like a child, stop for a moment and remember this isn’t about annoyance, it’s about love.

And we’d be nowhere without them.

So thank you Mum.

For everything.

Amazingly I’ve done nothing … well, nothing new … just fancied singing the praises of Mum’s out there.

Though I do think my Mum is still not very pleased with the additional tattoos.

Comment by Rob

Comment by andy@cynic

The best advice I ever had:
If you want to love your kids properly, love their Mum

Dads are the planners of parenting, mostly unnapreciated, mostly mocked. Only sometimes useful.

Comment by northern

and not all mums are as brilliant as mrs c, ask caylee anthony for a start.

Comment by andy@cynic

Who do you think you are, Ben Elton?

Comment by Rob

thats fucking fighting talk.

Comment by andy@cynic

So what’s the difference with Dads then? Is it they slap their heads in frustration, tell you to pull your socks up when you’re upset and kick you up the arse when you’ve done something stupid or let them down?

Comment by DH

Comment by andy@cynic

I heard that

Comment by northern

You’re a bit of a softie Rob, but your posts about your mom always make me call mine.

Despite all the complaining that we do, it’s annoying how often our parents turn out to have been right.

Comment by Rafik

Gentle. Insightful. Lovely. Good start to the week Robert.

Comment by Lee Hill

Oh, thank you Robert. For me, being a mother, your Mother, has always meant fulfillment, lots of love to give and receive, excitement at following your progress in life and (may I say it?)pride in the person you have become. Alright, there have been and there still are some ‘hitches’ like jeans full of so many holes it was a miracle they stayed up (do you remember?) and now tattoos, not wearing socks when it is cold etc., but I can live with them!
We will have to skype again soon.
Love to you and Jill.
