Reading too much into things...

I know, I know, I'm over thinking again (got that out if the way before I start)

Jack has started asking me about God. Which is fine. Only I don't believe in God. I wish I did a lot of the time and I have studied with a few different christian groups but I haven't had that 'moment' where I felt it was true. Still... This isn't about me. Jack says he does believe and wants to know more. I guess all the literature I gathered will come in handy. I'll support him if he wants to be a Christian.

Meantime, Tom is wrapping himself up in a fluffy pink world filled with cakes, shiny things, and My Little Pony (and has been for a long time now) and I also find myself wondering if he will be more into guys than girls when he's older. This is also not a problem for me or his dad and we will support him in his life too.

Thankfully the only thing George is concerned with is his new (2nd) tooth.

My thoughts may amount to nothing. Jack may or may not find god. Tom may or may not be gay. And I guess It's no big deal anyway. But as a parent I can't help but wonder and worry about how others will treat my kids. Loving god is becoming less accepted - bible bashers considered odd. Being gay is more accepted now but people are still hated for it.

I want my kids to be themselves and know that no matter who they are their mum & dad will always love them... There is no 'no matter who they are' about it. We love them. Full stop. I hope they can live in a world that will do the same.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
