No pun(well maybe alittle) intended re your last post-for which I must thank you: my first spontaneous belly laugh of 2008!

  4. You are a lovely, warm, articulate Mum who obviously loves her boy very much. I too was a single Mum once, and it was hard/lonely/bloodyawful etc. But it was also a wonderful time of self-discovery…I used to laugh when people said they wanted to ‘find themselves’, but I took that time to look for ME and, hey…I found her and lots of other nice things in the process! So enjoy being a Mummy and enjoy those books and don’t beat yourself up-you’re doing a grand job!
    A HUGE hug for you!!

  5. All so true! I’ve even admitted recently that now I know why mom’s are ready for their older teens to head off to college. But, truthfully, I’m really not ready and it’s only because I still have 3 little ones at home that I can bear the thought. We all want a little bit of our youth and freedom back but when we were young we thought only adults had freedom. Ah the irony. Blessings… Polly
