Just The Way I Am ...

NaBloPoMo - Day 3

Soooo ... Yesterday evening I had the following conversation with my daughter:

Miss Mac:  "Where did you put the makeup wipes we bought earlier Mum?"

Me:  "In the bathroom?"

Miss Mac: "Can't see them"

Me: " Ummm"

Miss Mac: "I'm in the bathroom, I can't see them!!"

Me:  "Shh, I'm thinking!"

Miss Mac: (in an incredulous tone)  "I really don't think THAT will help very much Mum!"

Excuuuuse ME!!!  But whatever happened to unadulterated adulation from my children hmmm?

When they were young I was EVERYTHING to them.  Totally, completely, I was god!

These days I get comments like:

 "your bottoms too big for those pants"

"you're not very pretty in the mornings are you Mum?"

"If we see any of my friends can we pretend we don't know each other?"

I think I would quite like a return to those days of unadulterated adulation.

The only thing is, I don't plan on any more children ...

So, what are my options?

Find a man and totally bewitch him?

One that sees colour in my chaos. One that laughs at all my madness.  One that embraces my scantiness, loves my sense of the ridiculous, understands my sadness, wants to share my happiness.

Someone who I can really be me with and who loves me just the way I am?  (because you can be certain, I would do the same for him.)

Maybe I already found him ...  maybe he doesn't exist ...

Maybe I should just stick with what I know for sure:

My Mate Gus ;)

If that man exists, send him my way (even though I'm married ;-) .... unfortunately I'm pretty sure he's a figment of our combined imaginations.... Gus looks like a fabulous faithful friend. F

I think you may be right Fiona in which case It's just me and the goose in the long run :)

Hi Laura - I always have this urge to say something like 'welcome aboard' - but that's all a little hearty for me :) great to have you here though and I shall do my best to keep you entertained x

I think you're the first one's blog I've posted a comment on & have (almost- LOL) been welcomed aboard! Hey, I feel pretty dang special now! You've got a fan for life now for your politeness & welcoming spirit! ;-)

Sarah Mac said...
