I did actually write the whole top 10 but then I figured who wants to be that depressed first thing on a Monday morning? So, selfless to the core wee soul that your auntie is, cut it down to the top 5.
My youngest daughter is now taller than me. That makes me the smallest person in the house. It is hard to be authoratative and tell them off when I have to look up to do it.
Nothing like a fresh faced daughter or 2 to highlight the ageing process. In photographs I have to make sure there's someone in between us as the contrast in the skin tone is too shocking.
My eldest daughter has a boyfriend. This boyfriend has a car, a job and a mortgage.
My son has started shaving.
My eldest daughter will be 18 on Thursday. Legally an adult, officially no longer a child. My beautiful baby girl, my practice child, growing up, about to leave home and go off to university. The thought of not seeing you, joking with you, hugging you and just living with you makes me weep every time I think of it. I hope you feel you've had a happy childhood and a good start. It has been the greatest priviledge to be your Mummy and the pleasure has been all mine. I've given you life so go and live it to the full. May all your wildest dreams come true.
