A Letter To My Mammy
Mammy, I know sometimes it can be a struggle but you are doing a wonderful job.
You make me safe when I feel scared and happy when I feel sad.
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed just feeling lots of emotions but not always understanding why.
This sometimes makes me scream or shout but it’s not meant to make you feel bad.
It really helps when you keep calm and explain to me how I feel.
It helps me to understand I not being silly.
You make me feel understood which goes a long way.
When you whisper’ I love you’ with a big mammy cuddle it makes me feel so loved and valued.
I know someday’s are tiring and I worry when you look sad.
Only because you have taught me to care for the ones I love.
I am starting to learn right from wrong but don’t always understand.
Mammy please stay patient because I am still growing and learning everyday.
Somedays I think I have worked it all out but then I realise I haven’t.
Those days that seem tough are the times I need you more than ever.
Mammy I know each day is busy and I keep you on your toes.
I love the times we just laugh and act silly.
I look at you and think ‘wow’ I am lucky to call you my mammy.
I love the time before bed when we read lots of stories.
The quality time we share together reading books always makes me happy
You bring the stories to life which fuels my imagination.
Bathtime is always fun just before I head to bed.
Best of all is when we lay together and talk about the day ahead.
My bedtime story helps to wind me down while I rest my sleepy head.
I love that you stay with me until I go to sleep. It makes me feel safe and really cosy.
I know sometimes I wake at night and disturb you from your sleep.
I am really sorry but mummy’s presence removes my fear of darkness, monsters or spiders
You make me feel safe to return to sleep to wake up fresh and have more fun.
Mammy, you are the best and my number one. You are my protector, comforter, teacher and friend. So please remember on those tough days I am just learning and one day it will all come.
Love Your Little Person x
