"A Mom For All Ages" - a post that makes me teary this morning...

Last week, we had many [MANY! ] consecutive days of really bad behaviour from my children. They were constantly being rude, disrespectful, disobedient, naughty, out-of-control, and I swore I listed out enough punishments to last them until the were 18 year old. I was convinced that I was bringing up a bunch of horrible little people. And I felt like such a horrible mother. Anyway, this email landed in my inbox last week, and well, I was having a vulnerable moment, and it made me cry a little. A 3 year old a child will say, ”Mummy I love you!!” At 10 years old they’ll say, ”Whatever Mum.” At 16 years, “My mum is so annoying!!” At 18 years, “I’m leaving this house.” At 25 years, ”Mum, you were right.” At 30 years, ”I want to go to my mum’s house.” At 50 years, ”I don’t want to lose my mum.” At 70 years, “I would give up everything to have my mum here with me.”
