The Friday Club

The Friday Club is is a great blog carnival run by Notes From Home. This week her prompt is: Five Things You Want Your Children To Know About You…

So here are my pearls of wisdom. Are you listening kids??

• Nothing you ever do or say will stop me from loving you – although you might really piss me off sometimes. And you can tell or ask me anything, even if it feels awkward.

• I’d like to be your friend, but I’ll always be your mother first. Remember I used to be young too. You need to understand that everything you get up to, I got up to first, and I know all the tricks. All of them.

• I don’t care if you get angry at me, or even hate me sometimes, but it’s really important that you respect me, our family, and our home.

• Most of the time I absolutely adore your company, but every now and again I just need to pull into my little shell and not talk for a while. It’s not you, it’s me, and I’ll come out again very soon. Promise!

• I want you to do well for yourselves, and for your own sense of achievement and self worth. Don’t ever feel like you have to prove anything to me – I’m already so proud of you I could burst.

    Lovely post, I’m nodding in agreement at all your points. (Except number 2, I’ll bet you anything they come up with some new tricks of their own when the times comes!!)
