My mum was always my best friend, my right arm and my rock. Now I find that in my hubby as well. As a teenage girl growing up mum and I had no secrets when I was in my 20’s, we talked about everything. I loss my mum a few years back and berore I had my 2 little girls. I had a 25 weeker for my first baby and dont get me wrong im very greatful to my hubby how much support he was but he wasnt mum. I needed num and I dont blame other mums but I have to admit I was always slighly jealous seeing other mums having their mums beside them. Now my 25 weeker is 2 and so beautiful and my baby is 7 month and alao beautiful. I love my princesses so much, they make my life complete but I still miss mum and wish she was here to meet her only 2 grandchildren and enjoy every moment with me. I have a mil and we get along good but she always to self centred to really care. My inlaws havent seen their grandchildren for 7 month since bubby was born and their both alive, my dad comes see them everyday and he is 20 yrs older as my mum was and she would have seen them every day as well. Sorry just really missing mum today and what she is missing out on.

  • I felt so sorry for you reading this story. I’m sorry to hear about your mum. Although it isn’t the same situation, I don’t have any family nearby, the couple of relatives I do have are thousands of kms away.


  • Something i can relate to! In part anyway, my mum lives overseas. My MIL is only just starting to talk to me now. Apparently hated me for ages and called me names behind my back. My mum calls on Skype every chance she gets, my MIL often goes a few weeks without seeing/talking to us.Sometimes, i wish we lived near my mum n dad because they are both retired which would mean no daycare costs for me and the ability to work whenever.
    Hun, i KNOW your mum is looking on you from above and she would be soooo proud if you.


  • Sounds like this was one of those you could have done with your mum.


  • I’m so sorry to hear about your mum, Im sure she is very proud of you!


  • Hiya. I hear you. And I’m so sorry you lost your mum!!

    Having lost mine 6.5 years ago when my eldest was but 2 and the younger 2 yet to be born, I can relate to pretty well everything you have just said. It just doesn’t seem RIGHT to not have her around. It’s not how you imagined things would be.

    I get annoyed listening to others complain about their parents in regards to what they do with the little ones etc. It floors me. But I try to keep in check thinking that I may very well have done the same thing had I the luxury to take mum for granted still!!

    Glad to know you have a wonderful husband and obviously adoreable kids and a doting dad! We, too, have the doting dad/granddad or “Gumps”. He cooks us and all his kids and grandkids lunch every Sunday! Blessed! In-laws are interstate.

    So long as you have more times you remember your mum and smile, than you have feeling down, all’s good. Everyone’s entitled to a down day. I have them too – I call them my ‘taking it easy’ day. As much as that can work with small kids. I try to make myself feel better by baking something she liked or baked herself and having a cuppa just like she used to make me :)

    Hope your spirit lifts soon. Take care and will be thinking of you today!
