I had the opportunity to spend a day with my daughter thanks to an inset day and my Mum looking after the little monster. We went shopping for new school shoes (bought at M&S in the sale for the grand total of £7 – October is definitely THE month for buying school shoes…….if your kids can cope with hobbling through September in ill-fitting shoes). Because they were such a bargain I gave her the go ahead to buy something else – which made her one happy little lady.
We had coffee at Starbucks and lunch at Five Guys (which does the best fries and scrummy hamburgers) and I got o know my daughter at 8 nearly 9 – the daughter that loves being a sister but enjoyed being purely a daughter and having the undivided attention of her Mum. It made me both happy and sad because I realised how much of her I had been missing and how much she had been growing up while I have been Mum to two.
So if you are Mum to one, two three or maybe more and you have the chance get to know each of them a little better and enjoy some ‘catch up’ time on what you have been missing out on.
