20 Reasons Why Mums Are The Best
Mums are flipping amazing and the best (even if I do say so myself!), lets be fair it’s no easy task keeping another human alive! Their demands change on a minute by minute basis and they always something going on – birthday parties, word book day, they need an Easter bonnet – yep it’s always something. But as Mums we always manage to pull it off .. just about.
I believe the world would be a better place with Mums in charge. We are wonderful super-human beings that always seem to manage everything.
Below are 20 reasons why mums are the best.
1. Mums Care About Someone Else More Than Themselves
Mums are totally self-less. They look after everyone else’s needs before their own. However, once in a while don’t forget to do something nice back for your mum – a cup of tea would be great!
2. Mums Don’t Like To See Anyone Upset
If you’ve scrapped you knee or are being picked on someone – your mum is always there to comport you with cuddles and dry away those tears. They’ll say everything will be OK and that they’ll always be there for you. Which is so true – even when you’re fully grown mums are wonderful for looking after you and giving you reassurance.
3. Mums Don’t Like To See Someone Go Hungry
This is so true of all mums – we are always trying to feed our kids. I do love it though when I go round my mums she always make me some lunch and a cup of tea! Its nice to be the mum that’s not making it for a change. As mums we always have full cupboards in the kitchen ready and waiting for those magical words ‘mummy I’m hungry’ don’t worry kids we’ve got it covered.
4. Mums Are There When You Need Them Any Time Of The Day
It doesn’t matter if its midnight or 3.00am in the morning us mums are and always will be there for our children if they need us. Mums are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week. There’s no time we are off duty and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
5. Mums Always Make You Better When Your Poorly
Got a cold? Don’t worry we’ve got the medicine cabinet on standby! It’s not just the medicine though, its the hugs and kisses that work wonders too. You’ve also got to hand it to mums home remedies for poorly coughs – who doesn’t love a bit of homemade honey and lemon drink.
6. Mums Can Multi-Task The Hell Out Of Everything
Yes we are super-organisers! Why? We have to be. We’ve got doctors and dentists to organise, there’s after school clubs and homework projects. Family outings, food shopping, bills. That gig on the side you have called a full-time job. Yep Mum Organisation is a real thing!
7. Mums Know What You’re Thinking Before You Start Talking
This can be both good and bad from a child point of view but for a mum its an amazing ability to have! Don’t lie to us we’ll know it it’s written all over your face. When you come over and say ‘Muuuuuuum’ we already know what you’re after we are mind readers.
8. Mums Want What’s Best For Everyone
We are so into doing what’s best for everyone and trying to keep everyone happy. Its not always easy and we have sometimes have to juggle a lot of plates. This can be where that mum organisation comes into a world of its own.
9. Mums Have Endless Amounts Of Love
We have got plenty of love to give. We are always here for kisses and cuddles and just doing anything that can make life easier and happier for our families. Making sure our children are well taken care and loved is high on our priority on our list.
10. Mums Are Always Right
Its true mums are always right – I’m not sure if this is a good thing from the kids point of view though! As kids we always disagree with our parents. Inevitably though there comes a point when you sit there and think to yourself ‘shit my mum was right’. This usually happens once you’ve become the mum!
The best reasons why mums are the best though is that they do all the above and more – no matter how old YOU are. I’m in my 30’s but my Mum always makes me dinner when I go round, she’s always there when I need her and yes she is always right (don’t tell her I said that!)
I’ve also been busy asking my favourite mum bloggers for their reasons why mums are the best. You can see their responses below and I love them all!
