The worst thing about just sitting around with nothing but time are the thoughts that just continue to swirl through my head. I have mentioned my mother several times in this blog. Although I loved her very much, I have tried to be a very different mother to my children than she was to us. She was a single parent from the time that I was a baby. I know it was not easy for her.
Growing up I don’t really ever remember hearing the words “I love you”. I know that she loved me and I loved her. But it is nice to hear the words right? I remember when Megan was born. I was so thrilled. See I was a career girl and was never going to have children, that is until I had Megan and resigned from my career :-). I could not have loved her anymore. I just loved to hold her, hug her and kiss her. I used to just sit and kiss her head…even told her tiny little body that there would be a million kisses up there by the time she was one. I also made her a promise that a day would not pass when I would not tell her how much I loved her! The same held true when Madison was born and as they have both gotten a little older I encourage them to talk to us and ask questions. This is often very interesting as other also find. Out of the blue whatever is on Madison’s mind comes out…sometimes a little awkward but the only way to learn.
By no means am I a push over quit the countrary I am actually very strict. But I do not want my girls to be afraid of anything and I do not want them to ever feel that they missed out!
