When children realise parents are people

When children realise parents are people

My pet car a Morris traveller suffered the death of an engine. My favourite garage man came to the house and shook his head, I choked back tears and decided its fortytwoyear old engine that has done 204000miles will have to be replaced, I will add a new clutch because its prudent and cheap with the engine out. I may replace the front floor pans if they have less than three years left, but they look good, so ... my garage man will come and collect it in two weeks and my pet car will be back in time for Christmas.
It is a car, but its like our dog, its unthinkable we would not have it, its part of the family.
18 year old came home form college and walked into kitchen saying
"Come here, poor Mummy Oh you must be broken hearted"...and just gave me a huge nurturing hug and kiss on the top of my head.
She is growing up and its as a wonderful human being, so proud of her.

My second son, aged 3, when he was told my name was Andrea, he looked at me and said "No, your name is mummy":laugh:

Awwwww aren't kids great!

I have had many things said to me over the years by my children but one of the most recent ones that touched me is when my daughter said when she got her place at university.....

'Thanks mum, I really appreciate your support, you have never once pushed me, you have just encouraged me to do my best and go for what I wanted'

That was very special ils. What a wonderful thing to say to her Mum - I would hope my boys will have similar thoughts - although being boys I am not so sure whether it would ever be uttered.

My youngest bonkers boy is just barmy and ties me in knots with his questions that spring out of nowhere and bear no relevance to anything that may have happened in the last 25 years. He really does confuse me with his wit and repartie, which for a 6 year old is remarkable and bizarre!!
