Interesting Fact – Guns N’ Roses released Sweet Child O Mine in the USA the year my eldest child was born. It was released in the UK the year my second child was born.
I’ve Got Five Children
Of course the first two are not children any more….was Sweet Child O Mine really released that long ago? I had a bit of a break after baby number two. a sixteen year break.
The Sweet Child O Mine x 3
Yes, Sweet is our surname 🙂
Star, is now 15 and will be 15 when she leaves school next year, that’s what you get for being born a couple of weeks early in late August. If she’d waited until her due date she’s be in year 10. She is tall, taller than me and I’m 5ft 8. She’s funny, I think she gets that from her Dad. She is clever, brave and has her head screwed on…yes, it’s a saying, but in her case it’s for real. Two screws hold her neck in place.
Boo, is 13 and has always been my sweetest caring little girl. Well, until she hit her teens…now it’s ‘just wait’ whenever you ask her to do anything, and strops at the drop of a hat. She’s not a bad kid though, just a normal teenager, the gentle loving little girl is still there. She’s also tall, when she was little we thought she’d never grow and called her ‘little legs’ but she suddenly shot up.
The Little Man is my baby. A little surprise that turned out not to be the menopause as I suspected. He’ll always be my baby, even though he’s now ten years old. I’m waiting for his growth spurt as he’s falling behind all his school friends in height. He’ll probably surprise us just like Boo did.
My Little Man does not remember me when I could walk which really makes me feel sad, especially as I have fond memories of chasing him around the school playground while waiting for his sisters. Walking him to nursery and Reception class, often having to run the last bit because we were always a little late after dropping off his sisters. And most of all, kicking around in the piles of leaves in the Autumn. I guess I’m lucky to have those memories, maybe he will remember when he is older too.
