Today – The true value of a mum

Mother’s day is just one day when we show how much our mums mean to us. As children they are there when we fall down and scrape our knee, a shoulder to cry on when we break up with our first love and there to celebrate when we eventually tie the knot.

    I love these statistics, its amazing to see a monetary value put to the what mums do. Its only since recently becoming a mum myself that I can now appreciate what my mum has done (and still does, even though I’m 32!) for me. I still feel like I’m banging my head against a brick wall to get (soon to be ex-) husband to understand how much I do, for him it all can’t possibly be as much hard work as his job. I think he would only understand if I went away for a week and left him to it.
