I do try to keep all overt parent bragging down to an absolute minimum but I'm fit to bursting at the moment and if you don't allow me a little annoying boasting, I'm likely to start chanting "my kids are better than your kids ner ner ne ner ner" at some point very soon.
So here goes. My kids are quite simply amazing. I'm in awe of them at times. My eldest, now 6, is growing so much that I just keep taking second glances when I'm chatting to her. When did she become so tall? So average-height when she was always so dinky? Everyone used to guess her age at a good year younger but now she's 6 she looks all, well, 6.
My youngest, now 3, where to start? His language (he's under the speech therapist) is just too cute. He's full of, "my love you"s and "my not cute, my big"s. And he is getting bigger but he's still little enough for me to squint and still see a toddler, a big baby even (OK, one that walks, runs, cycles, scoots and talks) but still a baby.
If you're still with me *waves* and you haven't gone off to be sick, being a Mum to these too is just such an honour. It's not always been easy, Charles has had a few health things and Rosie can strop for England (geese, she makes me look relaxed sometimes!) but God they're fabulous!
Anyway, that's it, I'll shut-up and leave you be. Just wanted to let you know how utterly amazing my kids are right now. You're welcome.
