I don’t know where I would be without my parents, they have been there every step of my life, through the good, the bad and the awful bits that quite frankly I don’t know how I got through at times.
They always seen to strike the right balance of supporting me, without interfering and they are always there in a heartbeat whenever I need them.
Since I became a mum I thought about this a lot more, because I finally get what it means to be a mum, I finally get what that over whelming love for your children is, I finally get that you are a mum forever and you will never stop worrying about your children.
Also, I am only too aware that I am one of the lucky ones and sadly this is not the case for everyone.
The minute I knew I was pregnant my parents have been a part of my girls life’s, they came to the hospital when they were born and were the first people they both met. We see them every week and the relationship my girls have with my parents is very special.
This week we have been lucky enough to have two lovely days with them. We made last minute plans to go to Wellington Country Park, when we saw it was going to be a sunny day.
I love the way the girls faces light up when I tell we are going with nanny and grandad. They just adore my parents and to see my own parents with my children, blows my mind sometimes.
We got given tickets for Chessington World of Adventures, but unfortunately Andy couldn’t get the day off work. So, I asked my parents and we all set off together, I even got to ride in the back with my girls something that I haven’t done before.
We had such a perfect day, watching my mum walk along with one of my girls hand in each of her own, laughing and chatting to their nanny. Life doesn’t get much better. Seeing little Holly run up to my dad, just like I did as a little girl and wrap her arms around his legs. It’s all so familiar, yet different.
There have been times where I thought I wouldn’t get my happy ever after and be fortunate to have my own family, but then Andy came back into my life and everything changed. To think of all these wonderful memories I would have missed out on doesn’t bare thinking about.
I know my mum and dad love sharing these ordinary moments with us and they treasure the time they spend with my girls.
And I know that I will always have these precious moments captured in my memory forever…
