Ahh the guilt of parenting...we have to forgive ourselves for our imperfections and for being human. They'll realise it one day too.

You sum it up beautifully. It sounds a lot like my weekday mornings.

Leonie, they don't even remember the top things now, five minutes afterwards! You will have made a definite imprint on her with the beautiful flowers and I bet she comes back to them time and time again. Tom is funny when I've been working from home, he bounces in the house excitedly to see what I've been making... I think he'll remember that more than the nagging!

... they will remember the good and forget the mundane - like the get in the car discussion held every morning in driveways across the world...its not nagging its reminding them of their responsibilities!!!

Love this last photo, am bit of a fan of short depth of field and fuzzy bits vs. focused bits.
I am 39 and have tons of childhood memories, good and bad. But it's no big deal about the baddies, they are so far off in the past it feels more like a book I read or film I watched, detached.

Oh, I love this post & the pictures! I love how she looks so proudly at the flowers - she'll sure remember these moments!:)

What a gorgeous post Leonie. The only thing I can offer is what I remember. As one of 4, Mum had to say all those things you did and more, and while I do remember her being grouchy sometimes, the good stuff takes up more room in my memories... her teaching me to sew, going to do the food shopping to have some alone time with her and stopping at every park we passed so we could get out and play for just 5 minutes.

Your daughter is so beautiful. I'm sure by the very fact that you've posted this, that she'll remember all the lovely things. Sounds like you're a perfect Mum! :-)

What a lovely post. So good to be reminded of what matters most... Of course she will remember the good parts - especially with a mother like yourself who is conscious enough and cares enough to recognise these things...

Lovely post Leonie, I hope my sons forget all my nagging. I have to say though i have not forgotten any of the yucky bits that went with my sons' births, your lucky you have forgotten the yucky bits.
