Blessed Are The Cheesebrains

My Experiences as a Mum and Wife of Dyslexics

A Song From The Heart

on September 24, 2013

This Summer my daughter spontaneously wrote and performed a song for me.

She’d had a really hard time with her Year 5 teacher who didn’t really seem to understand dyslexia or the need to build children’s self esteem and encourage them with positivity. In the end we just agreed that it was something she was going to have to grin and bear and get through as best she could. We joked about it and I gave her a reward at the end of the year for surviving and getting a good report. The song told me that, although it had been a difficult time for both of us, I must have been doing something right : )


Mum’s Song
You helped me through some lows.
By picking me back up again.
You’re the one for me.
Mum. Mum. Mum. Mum.
Mostly with being dyslexic.
Because of some teachers.
You’re the one for me.
Mum. Mum. Mum. Mum
M-Y M-U-M. Mum
