The Gallery...... Emotions

It would have been too easy to take a self portrait of myself looking haggered and worn for this weeks The Gallery..... but I would at least like to portray an outward image of serenity and calm for you all even if I am playing the opposite game inside.
This weeks prompt as all you Gallery regulars will know is a joint effort from Tara and the equally fab Josie from Sleep is for the Weak (who incidentally will both be at my CyberMummy conference on Saturday).

I have been a mum for nearly twenty years. This year I will be thirty eight. My whole adult life has been defined by my children.

I learnt the hard way that you should NEVER take any relationship for granted. My life and soul was ripped apart when my little boy was taken from me. We relished every minute together.

When I'd stopped looking it engulfed me.

For the first time in my life.

Sonny.... the second chance at being a mum that I truly thought I would never get.
The first pink wash.
A baby girl... named after the famous swinging 60's boutique, Biba. That's model girl to you all....
The shining light that nearly never was.... but is my Babetsta and your FunnyGirl
I yell (a lot), I'm grumpy (a lot), I'm stressed (a lot), I work (a lot), I'm bad ass at arcade Tekken and Space Invaders, I have to win at (everything). I love @byYanTo, my children, Cheryl, my manky dog Purdy, Blythe dolls and the fact that I have met some amazing people through blogging who I know will be my true friends forever.
I hate....
Well I said I was going to be positive - so I will save that for another day.
Be happy..... by Biba. xx

  9. I love this post, you have no idea how much I love this post. Your precious and beautiful babies and you. xx

  10. Nickie,
    I lost custody of my No1 son when I had post natal depression. It crushed me and the feeling of having my precious four year old prized from my arms as we both screamed takes my breath away even now.
    He's grown into an amazing young man and our bond has strengthened.
    I'm proud to be his mum.

    Those pics make me want more babies...
