Fun February

My Mother arrives tomorrow - any of my old friends/readers will know these are usually long, drawn out visits that by the time she goes home I'm emotionally worn out from and the kids are happy to get their lives back. Still Family is family eh?

The reason for her visit is that Big one is about to become Sweet Sixteen. My baby is going to be SIXTEEN!!! How the hell did that come round so fast? :o

It doesn't seem minutes ago that she was put in my arms for the first time, well of course after all the ouching and eeking and possibly a "don't you ever touch me again!!!" or such like to her Daddy. But let's just focus on the nice bit, my beautiful girl.

So to help keep me sane and to celebrate Big One's 16th birthday I hereby propose to post every single day for the whole of February.

Hopefully each post will have some fun in it and if nothing else will either stop me doing this or help me vent to relieve feeling like this which is more likely having Mother here for two weeks. ;)

TWO WEEKS? you deserve a sainthood after that! My baby will be sixteen this month too....*sigh* We were watching One Born Every Minute together last night (I reckon it will put her off becoming pregnant for at least 10 years so well worth the time) and I was reminiscing about her birth - she was disgusted - lol!

I'm feeling your pain too. Poor you. Be strong, grit your teeth and carry on blogging is what I say.

Hope your baby has a fabulous bday.
