a happy birthday week

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” – William Shakespeare
Mumma like Gollum
People always used to tell me I looked younger than I was. Until I had E! The massive amounts of stretching my skin did and sleepless nights have taken their toll on my youthful vigour. But like Mums who wear their stretch marks with pride I’ve learned to love the wrinkles that tell the story of my life as a parent.

Getting E to help apply an oatmeal facial scrub to be told ”Mumma looks like Gollum” might not be my best look but the laughter that comes from being around such a little comic is well worth any wrinkles and sag.

    Just remember that some of the wrinkles and lines are because
    of the smiles and laughter. Mine are because of being the parent of three children.

      Couldn’t agree more. Lucky you having 3 times the smiles and laughter ;o)
