#Marypoppinsmom… Why the name?

Becoming a “Mary Poppins” type Mommy…

Let me start off by saying that nothing can really prepare you for what it’s really like to become a Mother for the first time. It is a symphony of emotions, talents and skills that forms inside of you – sometimes in ways that you least expected.

When I was growing up I really loved classical movies of the time like Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Sound of Music. It was a love that I drew from my grandparents, but especially my Grandfather. Those movies really “Colour” life in. It stirs a type of happiness inside of you that is only really found in “little people”.

So, in the name of tradition, I passed a love of these “old time classics” onto my Girls. The first time my eldest watched Mary Poppins she was absolutely spell bound. Then she turned around and said “Mom! That’s you!”

Yes, I was a Mary Poppins… I sing to Birds… I use sugar to negotiate foul tasting medicines… I try to make learning fun for them… I love animals! And who wouldn’t love a good tea party on the ceiling followed by peals of laughter? I even have a photo of myself at my wedding standing with the very same Umbrella. My very special daughter did all of that analysis in a few minutes and drew the conclusion: My mom is a Mary Poppins.

So that is it. That’s where it came from. My daughter. She still calls me Mary Poppins and she still sings “Just a spoonful of sugar…”as she marches behind me to tidy up their mess. I only wish I could snap my fingers and make the Nursery tidy itself. And I still feed the Birds even if it costs way more than “tuppence a bag”…

It is lovelү price eenough for me. In mmy opinion, if
all site owners and bⅼoggers made ϳust right content
material as you did, the web migһt be much more
helpful than eѵer bеfore. “I thank God for my handicaps, for through them, I have found myself, my work and my God.” byy Hellen Keller.
