The gift of being a MOM!

There has been a lot of Mother talk going on here and I am finding great therapy from all the issues in my knitting (The other bootie-see last post- was finished plus a pair of socks grafted and a new project started all in one day) I guess its that time of year when there is great appeal to be sitting in the failing evening light with a quilt pulled over you because its not quite cold enough to put the fire on... So busy was I in dealing with the issues of my own Mother I forgot that I to am a Mom, so when this moment, this precious moment, just opened up...I smiled...
My gorgeous boy, how I love you.  Sitting opposite me after a hard day at school. Munching on a cookie and looking intently at some toy, munch munch, yummy cookie... your just so darn cute.  Your curls tinted blond from all the days outside through the summer, you pull a curl out of your eyes with a slow swish  of your hand. You look up at me and you are aware that I am watching you 'I love you Mommy' Oh my sweet one I love you too, your tender hands and those arms that give the softest and tenderest of cuddles, the curve of your cheek, the bluest of eyes and that cheeky smile...Yes my sweet one I Love you...


I do not often get time on my own with my little one as my children are the best of friends and are  never really out of each others company, today though the big one is on a play date and I sit here and see how in the blink of an eye my wee one is now not so wee anymore.

Thank you for bearing with me.  Usual Suzie Sews blogging resumes from now on...

I love your posts what ever they contain, just be yourself. I love the cute little booties and hat you knit. Thank you for sharing the special moment too. I miss my eldest when she goes to Uni where has the time gone? Jane x

Hi, I have enjoyed reading your blog. I love the autumn bag. So sorry to hear about the situation with your mum, I hope things improve soon. Your piece about your son made me cry! I know exactly how you feel. My son is 6 and out of the blue he often says "Mummy", I reply "yes" and he says "I love you". I must make sure I treasure those momments as I'm sure in a few years time he won't say it anymore.

I love to spend time with both my children without the other. There is a special quality to it, isn't there?

Sweet piece for your son. I am a sentimental little thing as my baby boy turns 18 today. Where does the time go? My advise to you is smell him, touch him, look deeply at him, memorize his every inch. They grow up too fast!
