Any new baby who arrives this week has impeccable timing – just in time for Mothering Sunday.
So how about a celebration? A new baby gift basket for the new arrival? Or a bottle of something sparkling to toast the parents? It would also be lovely to take new mum and baby’s photographs as a gift to commemorate their first Mothering Sunday.
Even although it’s a special day, Sunday will still feel like the challenging and tiring day that most days with a new baby feel like, but it’s a day that you can choose to consciously allow yourself to relax and enjoy the new feeling of motherhood. If you have someone to help, then you may be able to organise your day so that you have some space and time to really unwind with a long scented bath, or to take it easy with a leisurely lunch, but even if you are on your own, you can prepare a part of the day to pamper yourself with some time to sit down and put your feet up with a good book, or something enjoyable on the television.
Either way, enjoy you first Mothering Sunday, it’s the first of many.
