Sharing Is Caring


  1. In my defence – the cordial was a once off as it was the only liquid we had in the car, and you really needed it after all the salt at Lake Eyre!

  2. All the best parents yell a lot. I know I do. Interesting that’s one of your plus points, though…

  4. So glad she doesn’t let you get like Dudley. Wish my mom had done that!

    And they make us dads yell more than the moms. It’s in our contract.

  5. Hello Susan,

    Your Mum sounds pretty cool. Its pretty cool you have jewellery and get to go on the computer more often.

    I am not allowed to have cordial because my Mum wont let me.

    • Hi Cameron,
      My mum only lets me on the computer when I want is because I dont use it often.

      Even when we are dehydrated, she dosent let us have cordial that often.
      And the only reason I have jewellery is because I find the garnets and opals in them.

  6. Interesting list. Pretend you are your Mum and list what she would say were your good and bad points

  7. My mom can be annoying sometimes too, but she has more good things about her. Your mom sounds cool!

  8. I like your list and I like to compare it with Peter’s one on your dad. It seems that what you both like is to see the other one been yelled by your parents…
    (sorry I’m not sure if this sentence is quite correct in English but I hope you understand the meaning)

  9. Hi Susan,
    Yes, I agree with the point:
    “doesn’t let us go to see our grandparents as often as we want to”
    We miss you a lot and would love to see you more often.
    We have been on holidays at Phillip Island for the last week and have only just got around to checking our email etc.

    Hope you are all well, give Edmund and Lucy a big kiss for me.

    Love Opa

  10. Good post susan.
