I normally cry when my mum leaves to go home but it doesn’t last too long because I know I’ll see her again soon but last night I was really sobbing. Luckily my Boerewors was there to hold me tight while the tears trickled down my cheeks.
You would think that it would get easier to say goodbye after her being living down in the south coast for ten years but, it doesn’t. It gets harder and I think its getting harder because I see my mum is getting older and I realise she’s not going to be around forever. I guess I feel that I never know when I’m going to see her again and the fact that I can’t just “pop in” when I need her or miss her. I want to be there for HER. She’s been there for me no matter what and now that she’s getting older she can’t do everything she used to be able to – physically I mean. She has arthritis in her back and wrists and I can see its sore but she tries to hide it well and carry on regardless. I wish I could help her out and take care of her like she’s done for me all these years. My mum has had a rough life and been to hell and back moving her family to a new country, feeling alone in a new country and now alone in her marriage.
The longing feeling is still with me today even though I have called my mum on the phone to make sure she got home okay…I still feel empty and sad.
She's my best friend and the best and most special mum in the world!!!
I love you!
This is a gorgeous little song that my mum taught Kaylin and Megan while she was here this weekend (with the actions) and now they can't stop singing it.
This will be Granny's Song and it has a lovely sweet little melody to it. It reminds me of when I was little and my mum used to sing it to my sister and I.
Well, here is the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and I think you'll agree she is as graceful as she is beautiful... enjoy this fairy video and don't forget to print a few Fairy coloring pages before you leave - and why not be kind and print one or two for a friend too?
- Don't run with scissors
- Don't stick your finger in the electric plug holes
- Don't touch the hot stove
- "A hairdrier, because if Daddy puts the hairdrier too near my hair it BURNS MY HEAD like he's doing NOW *pointing with both thumbs towards her scalp* Och!!!
Gosh I laughed at her...so matter of fact...
