MY ds IS 13 ON THE 6TH OF JUNE. I much prefer it when they are babies, they like us, they listen to what we say and believe in all the magical stuff. We used to be thier best friends and heroes.. Now, bring on puberty girlfriends and someone who actually has a clue about young people of the world....lol. Luckily we still have a great relationship, but he still sometimes looks at me like i have just dropped out of the sky.. the i have a girl turning 11 on the 2nd of May. and what happened to buying dolls and prams as gifts, now itsd, ipods, iphones, mobile phones, nintendo Ds's. make-up...aaarrrgghhh. Luckily i still have a5yo 4yo 2 yo 1 yo and a 2 month old at home to enjoy for a few years yet, although dont you think wilth older siblings the little ones grow up thinking they are born 10yo!!!!!
