I am a Mummy

Mother's Day this year has taken on a new meaning for me. On Monday, just before he went to bed, Thomas called me 'Mummy' for the first time. He is 16 months old. He like most children said 'dada' first at around six months old and a few months later, the odd 'mama' started coming out too. I have been encouraging him to say 'mummy' since.

This is my second Mother's Day. I always thought my first ever Mother's Day would be most significant but actually I think it is going to be this one. Thomas now knows who I am and that I will come and help/cuddle/support him whenever he needs me too.

Since becoming a Mummy, I have changed for the better. I appreciate the small things in life now. I have enjoyed every moment with Thomas from the first smile, the first tooth, first food, first steps, and even managed to enjoy the (horrendous) first haircut experience! Thomas is changing every day now at an alarming fast rate and I am enjoying every second of it.

This Mother's Day and every other day for that matter, I will get to cuddle and kiss my son and tell him how much he means to me. Some other Mummy's like Jennie from Edspire are not able to do that anymore with their child as they are shining stars in heaven looking down on us all. Because of this, I urge you this Mother's Day to enjoy being a mummy, enjoy being with your children and remember those Mummy's who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Product Review: Hotel Chocolat The Jewellery Box

With my first Mother’s Day coming up this week, I jumped at the chance to try some Mother’s Day chocolate from Hotel Chocolat. I received The Jewellery Box  which contains 10 chocolates in the following flavours, pralines in milk and dark chocolate, berry mousse and Billionaire Shortbread. The box also contains a mirror and two compartments and can be reused as a jewellery box afterwards.

On first impressions, I was very impressed with the jewellery box. It was very pretty and well made. I was slightly disappointed when I opened the box though as instead of lovely chocolate looking at me, I had boring brown paper wrapped chocolates instead. Once you opened these packages, you found the beautiful chocolates inside. I can see why they need to seal them up but the idea of a jewellery box in my opinion is for it to hold pretty things in and this when it was first opened did not. I enjoyed the berry mousse chocolates as it was refreshing and zingy. I also liked the Billionaire Shortbread as it was rich and worked perfectly the milk chocolate.

Many thanks to Beth at Jam and Cream PR and Hotel Chocolat for sending me the chocolates to review :-)
