Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, grandmothers, aunties, whoever you are, if you have little ones

 ( and not-so-little ones) that you hold close to your heart I hope you have a blessed day full of Joy. 

Back in March when the UK celebrated Mother's Day  I happened to see some interesting trivia on The Low Carb Diabetic's Blog ( Do you know it?  It has great tips for health that apply to anyone, not just diabetics). I hope Jan won't mind if I repost them here.

Mothers Day Trivia: Shortest Interval Between Two Children
Jayne Bleackley is the mother who holds the record for the shortest interval between two children born in separate confinements. She gave birth to Joseph Robert on September 3, 1999, and Annie Jessica Joyce on March 30, 2000. The babies were born 208 days apart.

Mothers Day Trivia: Longest Interval Between Two Children
Elizabeth Ann Buttle is the mother who holds the record for the longest interval between the birth of two children. She gave birth to Belinda on May 19,1956 and Joseph on November 20, 1997. The babies were born 41 years 185 days apart. The mother was 60 years old when her son Joseph was born.

Mothers Day Trivia: Highest Recorded Number of Children
The highest officially recorded number of children born to one mother is 69, to the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev (1707-1782) of Shuya, Russia. Between 1725 and 1765, in a total of 27 confinements, she gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets. 67 of them survived infancy.
