    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...

    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...
