The Best Mothers Day present….. or not. - Aria MacDonald

The Best Mothers Day present….. or not.

With mothers day rapidly approaching both Mother Anita and my mother Christine are in for extra special mother’s day treats, and no I’m not spoiling by writing about it, they both already know.

Anita’s special Mother’s Day treat is to have a couple of days break from being a mother because Anita and I are off for a few days in Rotorua. A couple of days where she can be a ‘normal’ person without being mum 24/7.

My mum’s special Mother’s day treat is a whole weekend with her grandkids, well our two at least. Not sure even her super nana skills would want to wrangle all 5 of her grandkids.

Ok, so maybe Anita go the better of the two deals but it is really exciting for us to be able to get away for a few days. It is really our first time away together since Aria was born, its going to be interesting to see how we cope with being away from them.

We also appreciate the big effort that my mum and dad are undertaking to fill in for us while we are gone. We also appreciate that Simon has learnt our TPN routine to be able to handle that side of Aria’s care while we are gone, thanks for sharing Simon with us Josie and Violet.

Please pray for everyone who will be caring for Aria and Asher while we’re away and that there will be no dramas. Looking after a couple of toddlers is not easy at the best of times, ones with Aria’s added complications can be even more stressful.

One last thing, Happy Mothers Day to all the mums out there, its one of the toughest yet most important jobs in the world and I admire each and every one of you.
