What About Me? And me? And………


OK, I’ve got a problem. I let my children know I blog. It sounds like something that I ought to be ashamed of. It certainly is taking up more time, time that was previously dedicated to kids, housework, bonding time, reading, blah, blah, blah.

Or, so I’ve been told.

So, here goes.

Child 5 – ‘cos she asked first.

  • I want attention – and lots of it.
  • I want bonding time – any time.
  • I want to be able to discuss things we are both interested in. (Find out).
  • I want some one-on-one quality time.
  • I want to go to Starbucks with you and drink a chocolate frappuccino or latte and appreciate, together, the quality of a fine coffee.


So, sorted. I take her out once a week/fortnight/month and combine all her desires.

And then move onto number 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 6 or 7 and whatever their wishes may be.

Me? I just need some time for me.

And hubby? I’ll squeeze him in somewhere.

    1. I think the fact that daughter requested it probably means I’m not doing it all. C’est la vie. I can live with a bit of criticism. I never said I was Wonder Woman!x


  1. Mine are the opposite, and if I even mention them in a post about something funny or whatever they (well the oldest) get’s angry. Otherwise, between there school, work, girlfriend, etc., lucky if I see them every few days. So anyway, we all need some “mommy” time for ourselves. 🙂


  2. Mine both know. E one who read a couple(where she was mentioned) pointed out spelling errors and punctuation errors. she was only interested because she knew I had written about my other child..


  3. Everyone needs their own space – even more so if you’re dealing with all the things you are.
    I’m glad your voice will still be heard on here 🙂
