The Gallery - Motherhood

The theme for The Gallery this week from Sticky Fingers is Motherhood

I could trawl through all the baby photo's I have of all three of my kids and post a few, but as ever, I wanted to be a little bit different. 

Motherhood is: Watching your kids have fun at bathtime

Motherhood is: Stopping the two bigger kids from picking on the little one.

Motherhood is: making sure they all wash behind their ears

Motherhood is so much more, and I don't think I can actually put it into words, but the mummy elephant taking such good care of her babies in the water struck a chord with me. The care she took of them all was very moving. She was so gentle and kind, despite them being disruptive and I'm sure she just wanted to soak in the bath herself with a good book and a glass of wine. The sacrifies a mother has to make.
