The Toughest Job

It is often said that parenting is the toughest job and at times it can feel that way, but I love my salary of hugs and "I Love You Mum"s.

Be Nice & Do What Ever I Want


I've been having a bit of a rough time at home recently and my 5 year old daughter came into the kitchen to find me sitting on the floor with my head between my knees trying to catch my breath.

She put her arms around my head and said "Mummy, please will you be nice to me and do what ever I want".

I replied that I always try to be nice to her, and doing what ever some one wants isn't always the right thing to do, so it would depend. I asked her what was it that she wanted me to do.

She answered "I want you to find your happiness inside and have fun again. Can you do that for me?"

It was all I could do not to cry as I nodded my head and said "Yes Beth, I can try and do that for you"
