mothers day


When I wake up in the morning it will be mothers day. Over the years I've never really felt like a mother. I'm not the mummy type.

But I know that I am one.

I know because it's Saturday night and my 18 year old son was supposed to be home form work over an hour ago.

I know because of the worry I start to feel.

Of course he's just off with his friends not giving my worrying a thought.

I know because I rang him.

So all you mothers – have a good one.

Of course they don't look like this anymore but it's probably the only photo I have where they're all smiling and I wouldn't be a mother without them.

And a call out to my Mum – cool sunnies. Thats little me, probably thinking about the sun cancer I'm going to get later in life.

  1. Even mums who are not the 'mummy type' can be great mothers. I think you have done a great job. That is a really nice tile of you & mum (who also was not really the mummy type!).

  2. In a more caring and sharing way. When we got pay TV I couldn't believe how many of those kind of shows you guys have. We don't have any.

  3. Because we're a shallow, crass, materialistic, increasingly dumbed-down society that loves cheap entertainment and mean-spirited TV shows. For what it's worth, you do know that most of the drama queens and kings on J. Springer are hired actors? …

  4. Great looking kids, Cat. you done good!
    Love the photo of you and your mother too. I should scan some in of me and my mum. I was born in 1967 so mum looks like a real groovy late 60's chick in some of those photos (ie, before having the rest of the kids wore her down!).

  5. I haven't seen much Springer, but I'd hate to think those people are as dumb as they seem. So I guess it's a good thing they're actors.
