Today I am feeling sad. My eldest daughter is now 13 year old and I am watching her grow and develop into a beautiful, indepdant young lady. Where has the time gone. Thankfully I still have a 10 year and a 22 month old to keep me sane but it really scares me just how quickly my eldest has grown up. She now has her own phone and is talking about cars and jobs and the fact that she only has 4 years left at school. I am someone who absolutely loves being a Mum and I am worried about this next phase and entering the teeenagers world and oh no, where does Mummy fall on that list?? I have thoroughly loved watching my little ones grow and develop and rely on Mum to make these lives better or for a kiss to fix that sore knee when they have falled over. My advice to all the lovely mums out there, enjoy every minute of your little bubbas, time goes so quickly and that load of washing that must be done when your son is asking for your time… forget the washing and make some great memories with your kids.

  • At that age does she really need a phone apart from in case of emergencies.
    Speaking from experience you may need to confiscate it when homework is being done – not the phone being used – and also- no using it in bed when she should be sleeping, not playing games, texting or talking disturbing others.
    They need sleep or their health and school work is effected. Fair enough to set the alarm in it to wake up in the morning


  • My girl will be 9 soon and it’s amazing how fast the time has gone.
