  1. When my daughter was growing up, I am ashamed to say, I was so caught up in working 60-70+ hour weeks that I didn’t think about it…
    But now, as my son is growing up and I am a SAHM home schooling him, I think about how much of my life is centered around him, and what a big hole it will leave when he does grow up and move away…
    I wonder what will fill that hole…

  2. My 11 year old (only) daughter wasn't ever planning on leaving her Mummy and Daddy, but last year she said she'd consider her own place, and asking daddy to buy a house with a house next door for her, attached, and could we fit a giant cat flap for her to pop in and out at will?! How funny!
    Of course soppy Daddy said yes…..

  3. Are all those lies?? I’ve told all my babies they were the best in the world. Of course to my third I say she is the sweetest little *7yo* girl, because, she can’t be better than (or worse than, for that matter) her bigger sisters. Okay, I’ve known little ones who were maybe sweeter, but they weren’t to me. And, any old ugly diseased lady IS nice when she is smiling because of my child. We can’t all be young and pretty and well.
    How do you find all those fun quotes, Alison? I have more fun reading what you write or what you find to share with the rest of us. Thanks!

  4. You break my heart. . .all moms have the same dna! What do we say to these perfect little people??? It’s never perfect and it never will be. We just have to love them and accept their adoration. No guilt. Just make the most of every moment and when the doorbell rings in 20 years you will smile and be glad you baked that cake!
