Hubbies Birthday

This pic of him always makes me laugh! The big disadvantage to today is I will be 50 in 1 year and 3 weeks!!!!.

I have been very erratic in my posting since just before Christmas.The reason being, my girls! How do they stop me posting, well, they are around and whilst they are here I take every opportunity to spend time with them, listen to them, laugh (alot) with them and generally chat!

The older they get the closer they are to leaving home, so I want to make sure I soak in every tiny moment. Be there when they need me and just generally enjoy their company.

I get the feeling though that we have a very special relationship and that when they do fly the nest, they will flutter back.................


Off to visit my mum this week so won't be around much!

You're right to spend as much time as you can with them, it all goes so fast.... from their point of view as well as yours!

Nothing matters more than our families, dear Libby, and when you give love and allow your children to feel free to fly the nest, that love will always return to you each time they come back to see you...and they will, I promise...because the love of one's parents is never forgotten :)

Jacky said...

I pray that I can maintain this sort of relationship with my daughter.

However what made me giggle was the bit about you going off to see your mum - so it all seems to run in the family.

And best wishes to your husband on his birthday :o)

Oh yes - they will surely flutter back - and phone too.

The purest joy in the world is a close relationship with children and spouse - and family if you have it.

Wonderful - enjoy

I remember the angst when K left to go to uni - seems ages ago now doesn't it.

Us mums are good at adjusting aren't we.

They will undoubtedly be back and bring their wee ones with them. More to love.

They both look like great daughters, spend as much time with them as you can!

Sheila said...

I'm glad you enjoy each other's company. They look like lots of fun.
Happy Birthday to hubby.

Many Happy Returns to your dear husband! I'm glad you're enjoying your family. Everyone grows and changes so fast. Your daughters are beautiful! What fun everyone has together. That is a gift. :-)
