  1. I have confronted mixed emotions in reading of your chat with Finley. I had a tumultous and troubled time for the first 14 yrs. of my childhood with my mom. Suffice it to say I got mixed messages of emotional/physical abuse and tender loving times..both from the same woman I called “mom.” I think that will help you to better understand where I am coming from in my reply here.
    Finley’s perception is wonderful, Ali. We are each products of the generation of women who precede our own moms. Bear with me….I’ll explain! I am connected to my mom, my grandmothers, my great grandmothers…and so on. I know it is physically impossible to share “womb” space as Finley expressed to you BUT I can vividly remember as a child having similar feelings of connectivity. He has brought those feelings rising to the surface….so tell him I am grateful for his gift of memories stirred in my heart this day we call Mothering Sunday. xxxxooooo
    (((((hugs Finley and Ali)))))

  2. Very, very darling!! My 4 year old son told me the other night, after brushing his teeth, “Don’t look – I’ll shine you’re eyes off!” Aren’t kids the best thing that’s happened to us?!! Blessings… Polly

  3. That is SO cute! Heart breakingly cute – if I can borrow some of Finley’s words!!!
    I wish I’d paid half as much attention to my own kids’ sweet sayings when they were little as you do with Finley. Luckily, I now have a grand-girl that I get the chance to pay attention to.
    You are such a good mama!!

  4. His mind is amazing, and his words always leave me with a catch in my throat.
    You have a very special little man there.

  5. Ooh, do you think that little boy of yours has been here before?! His words are stunning – as is that photo!

  6. Hi Alison, I’ve just read this whole page. We have awful traffic wardens in Southport too -just where do they come from? Are they a separate species designed specifically to make you avoid towns? Are they the latest Gov. way of making you therefore save your money? Am I paranoid? LOL
    You’ve had me in fits of laughter with the nail on your nose date too. Thanks for that.
