When the ideals begin…..

I received a private message from a mum in our class informing me who was marrying who this week. Keeping in mind our kids are 5&6 year olds.

Her son is genuinely excited and looking forward to getting married one day.

It made me think is this where our ideals start?

All I ever wanted to do was get married, buy a house and have babies. I think you could see the want and need in me, probably even smelt it. Needless to say my ideals were unrealistic and therefore the reality never lived up to the expectations and pictures in my mind.

Was this just my personal wants or did it evolve from coming from a home with the opposite?

It certainly wasn’t my example or experience.

My daughter has never seen me married as her dad left before she was born. I am now in a loving relationship with a fantastic woman. Her example is still love and support but we cannot marry in our country even though she wants us to.

Will this change her views on marriage?

I always said I would never get married again but I also said I didn’t swing this way…lol

Never say never I suppose.

I guess as long as I teach her great morals, foster her self esteem and teach her to demand all that she’s worth physically, mentally and Emotionally she will be ok.

She will be her and that’s all that matters to me.

Poor bastard will have too nagging mother in laws. 😄😄😄
