I made her...



This is where she likes to be. On our bed with headphones on. Drawing pad in hand and music or podcast in her ears. Preferable with a cat nearby. Purring.

She watches You Tubers like Joe Sugg, Zoella,  and Alfie Deyes, watches drawing tutorials and listens to Japanese language courses. She scrolls through her Snapchat, Instagram and pins on her Pinterest boards. A new outfit, hair do, drawing motives, travel inspiration, quotes about life... And she listens to music. All. The. Time.

She doesn't have WiFi in her room. That space is somehow hidden from the internet signals, us living in an old farm house built from big stone blocks. That is why she ends up here, in our bedroom.

If she is not there, she sits at her desk in her room or by the piano. This school year she is doing the advanced program in school and it was a very hard decision to make. She was scared. Nervous. Afraid she wouldn't like it. Hated school and wanted more then anything just out of there. Certainly not study more. But she took the leap. And she is happy. She has blossomed with her  challenge and transformed into another person. And every day she tells me stories about how happy she is with her new school program and her new class. How she belongs there with other kids at the same level. With the same hobbies, maturity and interest about other things than just clothes and make up. They talk about the world, politics and how to save the world. And music. Of course.

I'm so proud. She faced her fear and she did it. She inspires me. Its good to be inspired by your children. It makes me want to face my fears and grow too. And you know what? I made her! Well, maybe not only me but you know what I mean. I'm a proud Mama and I needed to brag about. So I did. As a Mama you are allowed. So today I'm patting myself on my shoulder and saying "Good job Annette!".

  2. Isn't it wonderful being a Momma!! I am so glad your daughter made that leap to challenge herself and she is happy with her choice. Makes her Momma's heart proud! It is great to see a young person comfortable in her world, not taking the easy path, and her Momma there to support her. So many of today's youth seem so lost.

    My daughter is older (about to turn 30 - can I possibly be a mother to a 30-year-old??? LOL), married now with 3-year old twins. I am her biggest supporter, her loudest cheering section. She is a stay-at-home Momma, runs a home daycare, runs a photography business, and has started her own Etsy shop. I don't know where she gets all her energy, but I support and assist her every way I can.

    1. FANTASTIC! I so wish I could be that kind of support for my kids one day. You are a heaven sent for her to stay sane in her super busy life. Lucky her to have you to support her and lucky you to be able to be there for her. And that energy... Wow! I had that type of energy before... I'm not sure where it has gone now. Life is slowing down a bit and I'm so pleased with that. Thanks for sharing with me today. I really enjoy reading about you and your life.

  6. I don't often comment on the blogs I read but this one spoke to me. I feel like I could have written this about my girl, right down to the purring cat next to her. I often look at her and think the very same thing "I made her" and my heart swells with pride. And yes, Mommas are absolutely allowed to brag on their babies.

    1. Thanks dear. Every now and then we need to remind ourselves about the great job we do as Mums. We beat ourselves up more often than necessary. Keep going. It will all come back to us one day. :)

  10. My daughter is five years old, Annette. And even though she is now happy and laughs and dances and sings I'm full of doubts and fears. What will the future ???? I can not imagine my daughter so great as your daughter! your girl is a woman almost! and beautiful! For years I follow your stories ... I can only wish the best for you and your family! I tell you CONGRATULATIONS! You have done great!
