Sometimes all it takes is a small gesture to make someone smile.
I gave out my first ‘catch me card’ today- my secret project I’ve been working on since last year.
We went to a cafe for lunch, and for once I wasn’t on my own with the girls. BUT as my mum is recovering from an op, trying to manage my feral children and a trike was still abit of a challenge.
I’d got Bunny the runaway on my hip whilst waiting to ask a staff member if they had a highchair when another Mum just went and got me one and helped me set it up at the table.
Simple right? Such a small gesture that made a massive impact.
A friendly face- someone that totally had my back without even knowing me. I could of bloody kissed her!!
And that is when Parenthood is totally f’in amazing. It binds us all together and when we work as a team we can uplift each other, make each other smile (even on dark days) and rock the shit out of being parents.
So Mum from the cafe, you were a total ledge today and you well and truly deserved that catch me card- Thank you!
Sometimes all it takes is a small gesture to uplift a fellow parent and remind them that we’re all in this together and that they’re not alone… you don’t always know when someone’s having a bad day… Catch them before they fall!
