Are you a real mum?

Real mums don't eat quiche...they don't have the time to make it...
Real mums know that they can find any missing kitchen utensils in the sandbox ;-D
Real mums often have dirty ovens, sticky floors but happy kids...
Real mums know that dried playdough cannot be removed from carpets
Real mums would rather not know what the vacuum just sucked up...
Real mums sometimes ask "Why me?" & get their answer when a little voice replies
"because I love you the most Mum"
Real mums know that a child's health is not measured by their weight or height
But by the progression from "mummy" to "mum"...

At 4 years old - mummy can do ANYTHING...
At 8 years old - mummy can do a WHOLE LOTTA STUFF...
At 12 years old - mum doesn't know a whole lot
At 16 years old - mum knows next to nothing
At 20 years old - mum is "way old fashioned!"
At 24 years old - mum might just know a bit about it...
At 28 years old - "let's ask mum first & see what she thinks..."
At 32 years old - we definitely need mum's opinion before we go ahead
at 45 years old - I wonder what mum would have thought?
Thereafter - I wish I had the opportunity to talk it over with mum

The beauty of a woman is not in found in the clothes that she wears or in her figure or her hairstyle. It can be seen in her eyes, because they are the doorway to her heart, where love resides. True beauty is reflected in her soul. It is seen in the caring that she lovingly gives & the passion that she shows, and the beauty of this type of woman only grows with passing years.

What type of woman are you? Are you a real mum? Is your beauty growing or diminishing?

I like to think of myself as a real mum...and I do believe beauty that comes from within is what matters.

Waiting with bated breath for the next instalment in the cellphone saga!! And interested to hear what other alternatives you're considering for schools? If by any chance our kits have arrived, pse send me an sms this evening - my brother is coming up tomorrow. Thanks, and hope you're feeling better.

Yes that was adapted from a "forward" I received that I thought was quite thought provoking...Panny I am finishing off the cellphone saga tonight. It doesn't seem to have garnered much of a reaction so I thought perhaps everyone else found it a bit boring. To me (& my RL friend Jacqui) it has been shocking...No sign of our kits yet, nothing seems to arrive before the 1st these days & trying to track it is almost impossible because the phone number never gets an answer & I can hold on for 15 minutes! Re: Schools I don't like to mention names on my blog but it's the local one - perhaps no better but at least more convenient. If it doesn't work out we will have to apply for a scholarship with one of the private ones "down the road" even though boarding was not what we would have liked.
