“I am not a perfect mother and I will never be. You are not a perfect daughter and you will never be. But put us together and we will be the best mother and daughter we would ever be.” – Zoraida Pesante.
The bond between a mother and daughter is unlike any other, I always knew it, but I’d never felt it, until Mia came along.
We are similar in so many ways, which can be a blessing and a curse. When I ask her what she’d like to be when she grows up she says ‘I want to be a Mum, just like you’ and it makes my heart swell with pride. We laugh together and play together. We bicker, sometimes we don’t like each other, but when bedtime comes around we always cuddle and cherish the time we have together.
It’s Handmade recently sent myself and Mia a beautiful gift, a handmade Mummy & Me bracelet set. A bracelet for me and a bracelet for Mia. Both with steel heart pendants engraved with our favourite phrase ‘I love you most’ on one side and ‘Mummy loves Mia’/’Mia loves Mummy’ on the other.
The set arrived just a few days after Mia’s sixth birthday, which was perfect timing. She gasped when she opened the package and beamed when she read the engraving on both bracelets. I think she’s the perfect age to appreciate the sentimentality and neither of us have removed our bracelets since we received them.
Our Mummy & Me bracelets are made to an outstanding standard, delicate and feminine yet strong enough to withstand being worn by a busy six-year-old. I won’t be taking mine off in a hurry and I can’t wait to explore more of It’s Handmade’s range to find future gifts for friends and family.
