Ah, children are such a blessing, aren’t they? And you have three of the little angels, how marvellous. Maths isn’t your strong point, is it dear, as you write that you have ‘one of each’, but not to worry, no doubt you can encourage your children in other areas. Indeed, your letter demonstrates that you have an extremely commanding grasp of the Anglo Saxon language.
Now, you mustn’t fret dear, all children experiment with dress styles as they grow up, it’s only natural. My sisters and I loved nothing more than to slip into my mother’s wrestling outfit when it was still steamy and hot from the contest, although we had to wait until she’d wiped the bull’s blood from it, of course. I’m really impressed that your youngest is able to express himself so freely and clearly he feels at one with nature. Try
and encourage him to wear pants though dear, nettle rash can be extremely debilitating.
It sounds as if your eldest son prefers a more sedentary life style; youngsters just love the Internet, don’t they? I sometimes worry about all the things they can view nowadays so it’s reassuring to hear your son has used the World Wide Web to develop his keen interest in farm animals; this is definitely to be encouraged if he’s going for his Naturalist badge. I assume he is in the Scouts, because you mention his regular hand tools activities. Or perhaps he’s more Beaver age?
And gosh – you are to be become a grandmother at the ripe old age of 34! I do hope your daughter will be able to manage a newborn baby alongside her mock exams. No doubt the father will step up to his responsibilities - it sounds as if he has a wonderful career at Ford’s and he must be doing well if he’s been told he’ll be there for the next ten years! What a terrific role model he’s going to be.
Do keep in touch, Karen and let me know how your wonderful family is progressing. I’m afraid I don’t know much about fostering so I can’t answer your questions on that, but I’d say you had your hands quite full
enough at the moment, dear.
