It's never been big in our household, we sort of regard it as a bit of 'Hallmark' event.
But there are some small people who now feel otherwise and were counting the sleeps til they could give me their very secret gifts.
I started the day being given two bracelets made of coloured glass bead (from Kinder) and three little sachets of dried rose petals (from playgroup!), along with cards that praised me for giving lots of kisses and cuddles and of course taking them to the pool with the big red slide.
And I guess that's what stood out for me, it's the very simple things we do that our kids remember and appreciate.
So there were no fancy restaurant meals or big expensive presents in this house.
We grabbed some hot chips and ate them at a park just up the road (always a big treat!).
Then we ran, climbed, slid, swung, laughed and played hide and seek in the sunshine.
And it all made me so very grateful for the three happy, bright, engaging, kind and thoutful little people that I am so proud to have me call their mum. (and their ace dad of course who did get me a cookbook and an electric toothbrush!).
Hope your day was great, whatever you did.
