This week I need to remember…
I need to remember my girl with the wonky fringe…
I need to remember the how angry and defiant she gets. Her frustration, her narky back talk, her eye-rolling and exasperated sighs.
I need to remember how she crawls into my bed with a tear streaked face and curls her long, lanky body up against mine.
I need to remember how she sobs and tells me that when something was bothering her, she just can’t help getting angry. That it is too hard to sort things out and that she cant’t stop worrying.
I need to remember how much like me she is…. the girl with the wonky fringe.
What do you need to remember?

Kate, does my daughter live in your house? Mine’s only 5, but I can see it all taking shape. ;-) Beautiful post.

Thats beautiful Kate….
I need to remember that I’m an over-spender….. And that money that I may spend will cause future anxieties in me….so before I spend any money over a set amount ( agreed with my hub) I need to wait 24 hours & see if it’s still “needed” or “wanted”
Your wonky fringed girl sounds a lot like my little big boy :)
I need to remember that no matter how crap I feel, the stuff I produce is usually pretty good, whether it’s code, art or kids ;)
That’s sweet Kate
I need to remember how long I’ve waited to hear the word, “Mummy’ from my little girls mouth and how much my heart leaped when I first heard it. Even though it’s now sometimes said in a demanding tone, an angry tone, a fed up tone… it’s still pretty brilliant being her Mummy!
