Now I want to be younger so we are never happy are we!
I had a wonderful childhood with parents who loved me and filled my life with great happy memories. We were not rich but we was rich in love and I always knew that. My mum was my life and she and I were so close. I always held her arm when we went out right up to Iwhen i became a mum myself. She always said she would look like a monkey with long arms, as I was always hanging on her arm lol
|This is my mum at the front. My nan is to the left and aunts behind|
Sadly she passed away when I was 33 and I have always felt sad she did not get to see my children grow up.
He had grown into such a fantastic man, I am so proud of him daily. He has done so well with his life and has a lovely wife Karen and gave us our first grandson last June.
Then I was lucky enough five years after Matthew was born I had my daughter Natalie. I was not planning on another child, but after a friend had a baby I thought it would be nice to give him a brother or sister.
Natalie arrived and she was perfect , such a beautiful little girl. Like Matthew she was a good baby but had a few health issues. We just thought she was a sickly baby but we found out many many years later that we both have a condition of the immune system, but we did not know then,
She filled our life with endless dance classes and energy, which it was hard to keep up with at times. She was a really talent dancer and I enjoyed seeing her dance and jump around. Later we found out she could sing and when I say sing she really can. She has a beautiful voice and I am so proud of her.
She is not far off having her first baby in February and I find it hard to think my baby is having a baby lol. I am sure she with her lovely partner Ian will be wonderful parents.
I know every parent thinks their child is the best but I know mine are. I am so terribly proud of them both and what wonderful adults they have become. I hope they think they had a good upbringing and that they had a good childhood. No parent is perfect but I hope I have done as good as I could.
I think Kevin my husband and myself are so lucky to have Matthew and Natalie and I love them more each day.
