It Only Takes One Mum…

To help spread the word in the blogging community about ONE-an advocacy organisation dedicated to fighting poverty in Africa, blogger Clare, from Seasider In The City, has devised a fun meme, taking the first letters from ONEMums (or ONEMoms) to create words or phrases that help explain what being a mum is to you.

Here’s mine:

Overwhelming sense of utter happiness. Mostly when the boys are sleeping!
No time for general, trivial nonsense-too much of that at home with a toddler.
Exciting fun filled times every day be it watching Papa G give Oliver piggy backs to my attempts at being ‘Mrs Maker’-worth the daily stress!

Music blaring-mostly R ‘n’ B if it’s the toddler’s choice. Really.
Unconditional love for my boys. Always and forever.
Mum-my own, who taught me how to be the best mum I could be. Thank you.
Silence because I can’t remember what that is. It’s overrated though right?!

I love a creative meme, this ONE is to raise parents’ awareness of ONE.
Michelle from Mummy from The Heart and Jen from BritMums have just returned from their trip to Ethiopia with ONE. Their ONEMums trip was all about sharing the work that ONE are doing to change lives in a changing country.

ONE is led by Bono, it’s advocacy organization dedicated to the fighting poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
ONE is a non-partisan advocacy organization dedicated to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Backed by more than 3 million members, they work with government leaders to support proven, cost-effective solutions to save lives and help build sustainable futures. ONE isn’t a charity or grant-making organisation. At ONE, we don’t ask for your money. We ask for your voice.

ONE don’t ask for your money, they are asking for your voice.

#ONEMums (#ONEMoms) is about parents coming together to make noise.

    Beautiful post and beautiful response hon. It’s such an important cause. I’m currently also involved in a ONE campaign against poverty, donating some of my time to help support them with PR activities. Great minds… 🙂
