An introduction to me and my Family by Kerry
Right then, where do I start? Well I should start off telling you a bit about me before I delve into my life story, lol. I have been married for 8 years to my darling hubby, and we have been together for 14 years, WOW that’s loads, lol. My longest ever relationship before was just 18 months. He had my life planned all out for me without even asking me what I wanted, I am surprised it lasted that long.
When I met my hubby, it was love at first sight, he was drop dead gorgeous. I was at college so my Dad had got me some part-time work at his place. I was on the day shift and hubby was on the night shift. I would walk in when he was walking out and each time I saw him I would hide. I was such a shy person back then. Then one day I told one of my friends about him who I worked with not knowing at the time that she was actually his sister-in-law. She went straight to him that day and told him that I had a crush on him. When she told me I was so embarrassed but on the way out I had to walk straight past him. He called me over and he asked me for my number. You can imagine my face and you imagine this, me in a long white coat with my long curls tucked away in a hair net and hat after working a long shift. He called me a couple of days later and the rest is history. We are happily married with 2 gorgeous children aged 6 and 4.
Our youngest has just started full-time at ‘big school’. He is doing really well but it was a hard couple of weeks to start off with, with him being so clingy. He would hold onto me crying “No Mommy I want to stay with you” each time breaking my heart. I would walk away feeling like the worst Mommy ever but within minutes he would be ok the teachers would tell me. The one day was awful. I took him to school, left him kicking and screaming and was told to wait in Reception. His teacher came to me within minutes to tell me he was fine and was now playing with his best friend in class. Even though I was told that, all morning I watched the clock till 12 when I would go and pick him up and that day, the worst I had ever seen him cry, he didn’t want to come home, he wanted to stay and play the little monkey. They really do pull on your heart-strings at times don’t they?
Our eldest daughter loves it at school. She also loves the fact that her little brother, although he is just as tall as her now, is at her school now. She plays Mommy apparently and her friends think it’s cool. I would so love to see this at playtime as they just do not get on at home. Saying that though, this is exactly how me, and my brother was when we lived at home with our mom and dad. There is a 5 year age gap between us and we would fight like cat and dog. We get along a lot more now but we still have our disagreements. It’s just one of those things that life throws at us.
Apparently my little girl is the double of me but I think she is just like her daddy. It’s funny how people see different. She just has my spirally curly hair which I know she is going to hate when she is older and will probably be straightening it all the time. We get the curls from my dad but his curls have long gone, lol, and he is now bald.
I was looking at photos the other day of my mom and dad in their teens. My dad had long curly hair dressed in flairs and my mom had long straight hair down to her bottom, it was gorgeous. I have never seen my mom with hair past her shoulders so it was lovely to see. I love looking through photos anyway. Some are funny, some are sad and then you get ones that really take you down memory lane. Like when you went on a family holiday or on day trips together. We were always going out places. It’s lovely to see how we have changed too and it’s amazing how styles change and come back in fashion. I am always taking photographs of my 2, as they are memories for us to keep. I have realised this past 6 years they grow up so fast and I don’t want to miss a second of it. I will look back in years to come and have thousands of pictures. They too will have them just as I was looking through my mom and dads the other day and hope that their memories are as happy as mine.
I will be back next month with more updates and trip down memory lane.
