I know we haven’t always got along the way we do now. The arguments we had when I was a teenager living at home are testament to that. But since I went to University and really learnt to stand on my own two feet that all changed as I realised just how much you had done for me as a teenager living at home. Now you are one of my best friends as well as my Mum and all those hours we wasted so much time on arguing, have now turned into hours we spend belly laughing and spending quality time together, usually putting the world to rights.
|Mum & Me|
I didn’t think our relationship could get much stronger, then I became a Mum myself. Now I realise just how much you love me. Even if you only love me half as much as I love Luca, I still would have always underestimated your love for me. Now I am a Mum I can understand why you were angry if I was late home and never called to let you know I would be. How I must have broke your heart a little every single time I back chatted to you or showed complete disregard for your feelings, when you would have done anything to make me happy. I understand why there were times when you would say no, even though you knew there would be backlash and I now understand why you cry at “silly” things, like when I turned 18 or when I got good grades at school. I understand and I am genuinely sorry for anything I did knowingly or otherwise, that hurt or upset you.
