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.
Linking up to Blogtober, Today’s prompt was Sweet Child O Mine
wow, how funny that you could have been writing about the menopause rather than children!

It was a bit of a shock, especially after being told I had secondary infertility before my third child, and then having 3 kids in my 40s!
I always forget the you have got 2 older children with you not writing about them much.
Star is the same as my youngest. The matter of a few days and she’d be in the year below. Wow, she is tall coming from me at 5ft 5. lol
hahaha! My youngest turned 13 and has turned into a stroppy teenager too. I am blaming the hormones.
Ahh! Your little man was a nice surprise. That is sad he can’t remember you walking. x

3 babies in your 40’s! You are an absolute super mum. All 3 sound like strong minded individuals, I take my hat off to you xx
Your children all sound very sweet indeed. I can totally feel your sadness about Little Man being too young to remember you walking.

It hurts me more than him so I guess that’s the most important thing. To him I’m just Mum on wheels 🙂
Wow your daughter is tall, I’m only 5ft 2 so all mine will eventually overtake me. I already have the stroppy teenage stage with E, it’s quite stressful as she’s much more outspoken than her two sisters were!
My two eldest are over 6ft. Their Dad isn’t that tall, but I was always the shortest person in my family so the tall genes are definitely coming from my parents.
Wow, three babies in your 40s? God bless you. I loved reading about your family. Great post.
Can you believe that in my 40s I was fit, healthy and full of boundless energy. I ran around after everybody and had a very full life. I sometimes think that I burnt myself out and caused my illness which occurred overnight when I was 50 🙁 I wouldn’t have changed having my babies, I just wish I could do more for them, especially the youngest one.
It’s so great hearing about all your children!

Thank you, I’m liking your preview of wax melts that’s popping up, must take a look 🙂
What a lovely introduction to your family and what a great idea linking it to Sweet Child of Mine! As you say at the end, wonderful you have those memories.
Thank you John, Memories are everything.
What a lovely post and what lovely kiddies you have too! I get how little man will always be your baby. Mine will too, even when they are 18 years old and as tall as their dad! They will still be my little munchkins! xx
