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.

Mum. I'm Sorry To Say This, But...


My 6 year old daughter came home from school and said "Mummy, I'm sorry to say this but you are no longer the most important person in my life"

Oh my goodness I thought - she's got a boyfriend already!

I think she must have recognised the look of shock on my face and decided to reassure me.

"But it's alright" she said "They said at school that God has to be the most important person in our lives, but you can still be my number two"

It's Not Just The Kids That Say Daft Things


I was on the telephone to my Mother today. She had to be quick because she was at work - work is volunteering at a local hospice shop.

She wanted to know if I would be interested in a Floaties Aqua swim suit for my little girl. It still had the original tags attached, was the right size, etc. etc. So I said yes if it was complete then that would be great.

She commented that she wasn't sure how it worked, but that there was a Velcro closure on the tummy. She said "Does that bit fill up with water? Is that how the suit floats?" o_O

It's a wonder I made it to adulthood really!
