To Mommies | Aidan

Dear Mommies,

I know that sometimes us babies can be very tough work. Sometimes, when we wake at 4am it’s just because we were lonely and just needed to see you, and maybe get a little cuddle too. We didn’t realise that you don’t get a daytime nap like us.


When we cry for no reason it’s because we are learning lots of new things and they make our brains hurt trying to understand. We don’t intentionally do it when you’ve just made tea, honest.


After you’ve just gotten ready to leave the house and we poop or get sick, meaning that we’re 30 minutes late. We’re not quite sure how to handle our excitement.
(Or times like when you sat down to write this blog post, with a cup of tea, and I had a poop explosion.) 


Even though we do all these things to make mommy life tiring and stressful (and smelly) you still protect us and make sure we are happy. You feed us, change us, keep us clean, take sock fluff from our toes, clean our ears and wear our sick on your shoulder like it’s a medal. Being a mommy seems like a really hard job but I promise we’re worth it. 

We love you Mommies,
Thanks! X

*P.S: Daddy, that time I wee’d in your tea, or the time I pooped in your hand, or drooled into your mouth.. That was just for my amusement! Your face! We love you too though πŸ™‚ *

*Disclaimer: This may not be what babies actually think but it’s a nice thought when you have a screaming baby at 3am*

  1. Love this! Totally sounds like what my little one would have said at that age if given the means! All the work and exhaustion and frustration pales in comparison to the joy and love that comes with motherhood!


  2. I would love to know what a baby is thinking! I would love to think that its this though πŸ™‚ It is a great thought to have when they are crying for attention just when you need to do something!

  3. Just commented but not sure if it registered. If not, I’ll go again…

    Very sweet post and a great reminder that babies don’t do things out of spite, and in fact, they don’t really know what they are doing so we shouldn’t hold it against them, be angry etc! Also, not enjoying the “mommy” tones in this haha – I think you should replace “mommy” with “parents” or “mum and dad” as us dad’s do stuff too πŸ™‚

  4. As Dave says, it really is a reminder that we shouldn’t lose our temper or get upset when things don’t run as smoothly as we’d like! They don’t mean to be pains in the bum πŸ™‚ #babybabble xx

  5. Brilliant! And the thought that all the rubbish stuff that happens to Daddy too is just for giggles has put a big smile on my face. We’re in this together babies! Sorry Dave!! πŸ™‚

  6. This is the sweetest post I’ve read all day!! Love the angle you’ve taken, I need to give this a go and do a post from my daughters’ prospective.
