My Second Mother's Day

The first Mother's Day I ever celebrated as a mother, was just last year. It was lovely, I got an orchid as a gift from Aili (OK, daddy may have helped her a little but apparently she pointed at it) and then went to spend the day with husbands mum and family. 

This year was my second Mother's Day. It was even lovelier as we spent it as a little family, just the three of us, relaxing and having fun. Again, I got a gift from Aili. She picked it all by herself, after daddy dangled her over some Body Shop gift bags, she grabbed at one, and that was my gift. 

What I really wanted was for us to go out, have breakfast and walk around and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful woods we have nearby us.

And that we did.





We have raised a real little princess, a proper city-girl. Once she jumped in mud a bit, she realised her pink Hunter wellies were covered in mud and proceeded to try to brush the mud off them, just to realise that she now had muddy hands too. Oh the look on her face!






Because our little monkey is such a fast monkey, we use these reins on her. Sometimes I feel like I am walking a dog out. She doesn't mind though, and it makes it a lot easier on us as we do not have to run after her too much.






While we didn't have anything to feed the ducks with, our little one did seem to want to have a bath with them. Oh how many times I had to pull has back from the edge, almost about to run (or rather wade) after the swimming ducks. Silly girl who is lucky she was in reins!




And we got muddy boots and muddy bottoms this time too... And then it was time to go home, which was the worst thing ever, as once you have fun, you want to stay there having fun, especially if you are a little girl who loves running around in the fields and the woods and jumping in muddy puddles too a little bit. After much coaxing, we got her to come back with us, hand in hand.





We've been here before as well in autumn time, walking in the muddy fields - there is a beautiful stately home converted into an eatery and gorgeous woods, where you can see horse riders and a duck pond. A lovely place to visit.

How was your Mother's Day?

  1. this looks like a perfect way to enjoy some outdoor space on Mothers day. I do think the reins are a good idea especially near water like that, it wouldn't be the perfect Mother's Day if you had to jump in after her! Lovely photos of you pretty girl in her pink hunters, looks like you will make a Country Kid of her in no time!
