We've changed our name! No Mummy Tummy is now Bodykind.


Your Cart is Empty

I have the best mum in the world. She is selfless, kind, thoughtful and would literally do anything for us. Every year we would ask her what she wanted for Mother’s Day and she would say nothing, ‘just your love’. She never made a big deal about it.

Now I am a mum, I get it. You get to a point in your life where 'things' don’t seem so important. My most treasured Mother's Day gifts are the hand-made creations from my boys. The excitement when they give me their pieces and their faces when they present their Mother's Day stall purchases are priceless. This means so much more than any expensive purchased item.

So, (apart from the precious hand-made creations) what do we really want on Mother’s Day?

A quick survey of my mum friends confirmed my suspicions as pretty much every single one of them said the same thing...LITERALLY. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE....

We want peace and harmony (at home), freedom to not have to think about doing anything for anyone else for just one day. And no cooking. At all. No cleaning and no picking up. And definitely no washing…

So with this in mind, here is a starter list of what we (I) really want for Mother’s Day…and it won't cost you a cent…

  1. No whingeing or whining for just one day.
  2. No fighting, yelling or wrestling either.
  3. I do not want to hear whether you are hungry.
  4. Pick-up your floordrobe without me having to ask.
  5. No devices – let’s just talk, share and laugh together.
  6. I can’t hear you when you are calling from the opposite end of the house and yes it would be lovely for you to walk to me to see where I am rather than the other way around.
  7. Yes, I would like to go out for lunch and no, I don’t want to organise it myself.
  8. Yes, I would love you to take the washing off the line without me asking.
  9. I actually don’t care what we have for dinner, as long as I do not have to cook or purchase the groceries for it.
  10. And yes, a sparkling to relax before dinner sounds lovely. And a warm bath by myself after would be amazing. Thank-you.

Now that sounds like the best Mother's Day ever. x
