That moment when after SIX years of being a mum...

....you finally hear the word "Mummy" spoken by one of your children.
With their sweet little voice.
To your face.
Well at least to the reflection of your face.
Yeah that moment.

And it was my little boy who sees other human beings as objects. Supposedly.
Yes, today I was an object, but I was an object of his affection.



Jack and I were in front of the mirrored wardrobe. I was crouched next to him, when he gently placed my hands on his waist- his way of asking to be picked up.
I lifted him up and held him close, as we both looked over at our faces peering back at us from the mirror.

"Mummy" he chimed.

It's different from when a baby says "mama".
It's a word.
Not a babble.

And it sounds amazing.
Beautiful.
Poetic.
Magic.

Six years.
Six years of being a mum.
I have waited six whole friggin' years for this moment.
And it was so beyond worth it.

Goosebumps and electrical bolts.

You can't bottle that!

Oh no way you can beat that, how precious. Whenever you feel low my sweet girl remember that moment cause i reckon it could only make you smile and be filled with love. Reading this made me look over at my 34month old daughter and think with such appreciation of all the times she has said " I love you Mummy" and your right mama is one thing but Mummy is a whole nother ;)

A long awaited and well deserved word, that so many people take for granted but from you, knowing your story gives me goose bumps, and I hope and prayer that one day in the not to distant future I'll be a mum and I have no doubt I'll cry at every milestone! My mum always said the best things come to those that wait, you, especially you appreciate the small things so much more than many others take for granted. Xxx
