White to Black

I admit I am an over-anxious mother, and will fight with myself over giving the girls a little room to breathe.

I am also rubbish at remembering.

Eldest very politely reminded me last week we had forgot to buy her gift we promised her for working like a bugger over her 'A' Levels. Bugger.  Today we rectified that.

I also agreed today the Eldest (19) could take Missy and Little Miss-ette shopping for clothes after school (breathe in and out and go to your calm place).  All girls are thrilled to shop together, I seem to have been sacked, my services to pre-teen shopping no longer required.  Instructions were given, nothing too short/grown-up and warnings, 'any trouble and for the rest of your natural life I will take you shopping' they have promised to behave.

I distract  myself  from excessive worrying by taking pic's of Cookie, me,'Who da piddy girl?'
Cookie 'Will  you talk to me properly?'

me 'whose a handsome boy?'
Whiskey 'why yes, I am'

crappy quick food, and a monstrous mess


Distracting myself away
awkwardly

Ma babies, and breathe and calm


Mama face


I am now going to tackle the kitchen of doom
my phone is stapled to my head
they will be fine

and any nonsense from them
they will be grounded for life

see you all soon

  1. There's a good kitty. Some nice cuddly fur to make you feel better. Tho it's probably better that you stay home. The last time I shopped with my daughter we had a few disagreements. OMG! I've turned into a "you're not leaving this house until you go upstairs and change, young lady" kind of mom. I must remember to have a drink and count to 10! Cheers!

    1. having a drink should be taught at pre-natal classes! I think girls love to test their femininity in all kinds of clothing - cue parents fainting x x

  2. I would have to spy on them, oh imagine if you and I could spy on them together!! So you are redundant for that job. I remember when my lads no longer required me for certain things, I was a mess. Basically I had to slap myself and get a grip and feel proud that they were becoming independent. But it is hard to let go of some motherly duties. I hope you will report in on what was bought. PS: you look very lovely, and sod cleaning!

    1. thank you! it is a double edge sword, I love their independant streak but it just means my babies are growing up *weep* x x

  3. I am an under-anxious mother. I hear various friends/mums bemoaning the fact that their kids no longer need/want them for x, y or z, and I think "but that's brilliant, what's the problem?" Because I am not only under-anxious, I am also bone idle. They're dragging themselves up, my kids, and probably doing a better job than if I was more involved... So well done for letting yours go and have some time without you. Hope the shopping trip was a success, with appropriate clothing bought and no harm done. Calm calm calm. It's all good!
    Yeah, my cats look at me with disdain when I do the baby talk. You look gorgeous - the frock, the fur collar, you, all beautiful. Bugger cleaning the kitchen. Have a Jack Daniels. xxxxx

    1. I cleaned, what is wrong with me, nervous energy meant I did a relatively good job - your children are a happy lovely bunch! there is no pleasing me though, sometimes I gripe about peace and quiet, off they go and I am a mess! x x

  4. Oh dear ... it's hard letting go when they start showing those first signs of independence.
    Stay calm ... deep breaths ... trust them ... and then ground them if they put even a toe wrong ;0)

  5. I am an anxiety riddled mum despite trying really hard to pretend I am carefree and trusting. But my kids are still alive so I think I must be doing something right. Don't know what I am going to do when they get older and begin demanding their independence and being all angsty rebellious teenagers. Oh help! XXX

    1. Ha! that's what we say 'they are still alive' ! when they are older I just think of all the advice I gave to the Eldest and all the advice that was ignored and she still has done fine! x x

  6. Ha! If I'd been shopping without my mum and come back with something sensible she'd had marched me back to the shop and demanded I changed it. Probably the only parent in the world to encourage indecently short skirts and bad ass eye shadow!
    Beautiful kitties and gorgeous you! Sod the washing up, the girls can do it! xxx
