This week gone, my baby (11yrs) went away on a school trip to the Isle of Wight, I didn’t want him to go – I was cross and angry with the school at their rules and taking my baby away with out me being able to have any contact with him should I wish to…
Well its Friday and he is due home in about 1 hrs time… I now feel guilty that I was so negative about the ‘bloody school trip!!’ Wish I had sent him with a camera – the only techie thing we were allowed to send them with – and even though I wish my children would take more photos – I LOVE taking photos and wish they shared my love! they don’t really and he wasn’t that fussed – but now I wish I had really talked him into it so he could have given us the running commentary when he gets in tonight! BLEUGH!!
I am so looking forward to seeing him – also slightly nervous as I know how horrid I used to be and still am, after being away for some time – everything always seems different and you feel different… and somehow it always makes me grumpy – I hope he isn’t that grumpy and if he is I hope that I have the means, maturity and humility to deal with him appropriately – phew -
PS He was fantastic he had a fabulous time and was full of telling us all about it :) not grumpy at all – another phew, mega chatty – yeah, and I managed not to yell for – well just about a week I do believe – amazing!!
