It’s a funny word really isn’t it? Freedom could be to do as you like or perhaps to have space. I am sure lot of us feel that we don’t have the freedom we would like to but on the times we do I love to enjoy it.
My two are growing up, they are both fab children and I know I had a good part in that (yes it’s good give yourself a pat on the back sometimes!). They have some fab views, likes and values, so when I look at them or hear them I think it’s really great that they are the way they are.
My guys are equally cool though but here they are just enjoying racing around a field, laughing and joking. Growing up is a tough old game but enjoying childhood when you get to a certain age is even harder. As you know Bex turned 13 last week and I am really hoping that she stays enjoying the simple stuff as well as the cool things too!!!
Oscar at nearly 11 is well in ‘Oscar’s world’. His totally laid back look on life makes me smile mostly and I have a feeling that doing it ‘Oscar’s way’ will be the way it is for him for a good few years yet.
I like looking at my two and seeing myself in both of them, but equally seeing the differences too. The funny thing is I am not a ‘it’s like this Mum so that is the way it is’ but somehow so much of how I see things is the way they see it. Which can be equally scary too of course!!!
I wrote this quick post after taking the weekends pictures off the camera and getting Oscar’s induction day date for the Comprehensive. I remember when Bex went and everyone saying once they are there it all changes. But actually it doesn’t have too in a negative sense that people always seem to suggest. I like to think as my two grow up then I grow up with them and if you can enjoy that well quite frankly your sorted.
To be honest I probably need a bit of growing up so it’s all a good thing really!!!
