I smile recklessly and I love excessively. I live today knowing I have no other day until tomorrow. Now is my moment. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is a mystery, but today, today is my gift (present).

Mum's School

We watched Holby City this evening with my son. There was a scene where a new mother, Daisha thinks she can not cope and is thinking of giving her baby up for adoption. Another nurse, Faye is trying to reassure her that everything will be alright. Daisha thinks that Faye is a strong woman coz she's managed a nursing career and bringing up a son who has a disability. Faye says that Daisha will cope, coz she's now a mum and that is what mum's do.

My son looks at me and asks, 'did you go to a mum's school when you had me?'

'Why?' I asked.

'You just seem to know everything when I don't'.

I wonder what they would teach in those schools that nature doesn't prepare you for, not unless it's a teenage mum's school and more teen mum school.

That kid is learning fast.... flattery will get him far; esp from his mother.

Kei, I had no words for him. He said I even knew which punishments to give and when.
