This Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Crazy Tree

I took a couple of hours out of my day today to go shopping with first born.
She had an emoshe moment at bedtime on Friday saying that although she loves her sister she feels left out at times and sad that we don’t get chance to play together.
It wasn’t the stuff feel good movies are made of but a Subway dinner, Primark holiday clothes shop and a jammy-get pot luck pick of the Disney Lego character she had been trying to get her hands on lead to her telling me she had had the ‘best morning ever’ and that she thinks I’m an amazing mum.
We laughed, we held hands, we talked about our shared abstract worries (‘I can’t believe we’re actually in life’……we’re deep thinkers).
Sometimes you just need to weird out with someone who understands.
She also asked me how old I was in 1930.
That wasn’t cool.

    I was sat here reading this thinking ‘awww, this sounds like such a cute little day out’. Then I got to the bit about asking how old you were in 1930 and I laughed so much a bit of tea came out of my nose!! I’m so looking forward to this stage with my two. Lovely post x

    Ouch!!!! My children haven’t asked about my age yet, but I constantly get ‘mummy your bum is MASSIVE,’ and ‘mummy, your tummy is more wobbly than jelly!’ Thanks for the massive confidence boost guys!! That aside, this sounds like the perfect day!! And for her to articulate that she felt left out and wanted a day just with you, is heart warming! And when it all goes perfectly like that, that’s just the icing on the cake!! I will also admit to being quite envious-I have 2 boys, and know that I will probably never get these ‘shopping together’ moments…! Already my boys have a strong interest in football, rugby, and fishing, and I can see Saturday mornings of the future spent shopping alone while my husband supervises and cheers on at boy activities!! So I love to hear a sweet mother and daughter story!!

    So Jodie … did you tell her how old you were in 1930 or not? I think I remember you back then …..
