We went to visit her last weekend to 'drop off' a second hand washing machine & clothes dryer. We travelled up and back in the one day, 4.5 hours up & 4.5 hours back. I just grab any chance to see my girls. Nik (2nd child)was at work so we went through a 1/2 hour down the track and visited Miranda & her new family (partner & his 2 boys).
Miranda, my oldest, little girl, who often reminds me to 'stop worrying, you'll make yourself sick!'Banned me as her facebook friend, yes I know how could she?? Well quite easy I discovered.
I object, I don't believe I was given enough warning! I remember her saying something about do not comment on anything on facebook OK. I don't think I did??WHatEVer!!
Now I now she means what she says. Just because she doesn't raise her voice when she says it, doesn't mean she won't do it(ban me). OK I GOT IT!! OK
I know she still loves me 'cause she tells me often , so thats cool.
They say you never stop learning. Here's a lesson I learnt the hard way.
Lesson 1) Miranda is 21 and now she can punish mum. mmmmmmmm??
What ever you do, do not comment on daughters photo's of 'way out' friday night party scenes on facebook.
I GOT IT already!! Just tell me 'how come aunties, uncles, step-mums etc etc are allowed to comment mmmmmmmmmm??Don't worry I know the answer.......................
Here she is unwrapping the pressies ( her stuff that mum & Craig had stored under the house for 3 years whilst she was getting around to picking it up ).
Do not unwrap the girls stuff & place it where you think it would look nice because it's her stuff to unwrap in her home, not yours. Her nest not yours!
GOT THAT TOO!
It is sooooooo much harder to step back and let others do for themselves, than it is to do it for them. Especially harder when they're own.
You should have seen the spotless home she had when we arrived. I asked if she had cleaned up for us and she replied No, mum its always like this and this is how I like it!! Grrrr??That's how I always liked my home too, not that it stayed like that when she was living there. What's going on here is she pulling my leg?
It doesn't really matter does it?
My reply to this? Well you have a lovely home & I am proud of you. Thanks mummy, she said.
On that note I snapped a photo.
