The Be A Fun Mum Blog is all about reclaiming the joy of motherhood in a fast-paced world. It’s about loving the little moments which are like pieces of a puzzle, together creating a beautiful masterpiece. This is encapsulated by the slogan, Love the Moment. The below picture tells the story of one of these moments.
My 3 year-old son is heavy so I can’t carry him for long periods anymore but I do love to hold him when I can. On the day this picture was taken, I lifted my son into my arms and walked across the road towards the shopping centre. As I lifted my leg to step up on the footpath, my son twisted to point at something.
“Look Mum! A love heart!”
And there it was: A heart shape on the road. I could have so easily missed the moment of happiness. Thank you my son.
I want to capture more love-the-moment moments like this one so I’ve designed a challenge, and you can do it with me if you like. It consists of daily activities as simple as “take 1 minute to look in your child’s eyes” to create awareness of things we sometimes take for granted. If you follow me on facebook, I will feature the day’s challenge with a few extra ideas also.

The thing is, I do many of the activities on the calendar in a given day, but the idea is to impress the moments on my mind so I don’t take them for granted.
Here’s to a New Year where the birds and the wind, the grass and the sky and a hug and a kiss don’t go unnoticed. Love the Moment.
