It finally happened, I told my daughter that she could not go on a walk around town with her friends, bearing in mind she has just turned 10, I told her I didn’t like the sound of it and I would like her to stay at home with me. Her friends were more than welcome to stay and play also. When are you going to start letting me do stuff on my own was the sulky reply….hmmm…. is thirty too old? At what point do you loosen the apron strings and why do I let myself feel pressured into doing things I don’t think we are ready for as a family by other more ‘relaxed’ parents? At no point did I ever think I would be the boring Mum…now hmmmm I’m not so sure!!
