    I Never Thought That I Would Be Mother Of The Bride

     Well, I went out to the kitchen with the best intentions in the world of baking some biscuits to take with me on the round of calls I am planning to make this afternoon.  I made a start, truly I did but I was thinking about Miranda and Al so much that I couldn't...

    My 14 year old announced last week

    that she has not felt like anything but herself not a gender but when she does it is weeks of feeling like she is male. I can't even begin to understand it but want to support her, she announced that she would like to be a male. I have already spoke with the school and they...

    Hmmmmmm........

    ......I am reminded, a little uncomfortably, I might add, of the story I wrote a while back in the "I am estranged from family members" group, where I expressed my satisfaction that my brother had made a stand for me at last when he went to visit my mother a short time...

    I Don't Feel Like A Very Good "mother" Sometimes.....t

    In fact, I am hardly one at all sometimes. When Miranda and Al had their engagement party about 4 weeks ago, it was the housemate's mother who brought the mower round and mowed the grass for them.  It was this same woman, not me, who took MIranda shopping and bought her...

    I Think About It A Lot..........

     ........and I used to get very depressed about it. When Miranda first told me that she had started taking the transforming hormones, it was probably about three months until I was able to tell anyone at work.  My Team Leader found me alone out in the tea room one day...

    I Knew It...

    My oldest, child, on paper at birth was female. At the age of 13 he realized that he was a boy. Everyone was shocked. Except me. I didn't consciously know that my oldest was a boy, but I was not at all surprised when I found out. I always said when I was pregnant that i was...
