I learned early on that Mother's Day wasn't about me.
My first ever Mother's Day.
A radio station gave me daffodils.
They generously gave every mother in the maternity unit a gift to celebrate.
For me, it was my return after my gorgeous daughter was refusing breast milk.
My daughter's third birthday was Mother's Day, and I found myself sharing 'my day' with three children (it was very definitely her day).
And so, the lesson is learned.
And so I offer my winning combination.
Mother's Day at Asda with Peppa Pig.
Because some just forget to remember.
And others just know giving a bit of Peppa Pig will make children as happy as it makes mummy.
Because everyone loves bathtime and storytime.
And because mummy is amazing.
But mostly because reading a book is fantastic!
