Real mothers don't eat quiche - they don't have time to make it!
Real mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
Real mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real mothers know that dried playdough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real mothers don't want to know what the vaccum just sucked up.
Real mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says 'Because I love you best.'
Real mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade.....It is marked by the progression of mummy to mum to mother......

The images of a Mother through their child's eyes
4 years of age - My mummy can do anything!
8 years of age - My mum knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 years of age - My mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 years of age - Naturally mother doesn't know that either.
!6 years of age - Mother? She's hopelessly old fashioned
18 years of age - That old women. She's way out of date!
25 years of age - Well, she might know a little bit about it!
35 years of age - Before we decide lets get mum's opinion.
45 years of age - Wonder what mum would have thought about it.
65 years of age - I wish I could talk it over with mum.

To all of the special women out there whether you are mummy, mum or mother I hope you had a fantastic Mothers Day last Sunday.



Today at Bellybuttons our babies made us special mothers day mugs. Thank you to Carlie who bought in the mugs and paint for our babies to make the special presents for their mums. Here is Benji with the mug he made for his mummy Bry.

Happy Mothers Day to all of the hard working mums out there.


One of our mums, Hannah was due yesterday. Here is Hannah looking very unimpressed that her baby girl Charlotte did not arrive on her due date!

Im sure you will meet your new baby soon Hannah and we are looking forward to welcoming baby Charlotte to Bellybuttons.
