My precious daughter, only child, came to visit this week to help me “lighten the load”.  We’ve talked and laughed and cried so much. We are going through “Our Stuff”. Literally.

Her stuff. My Stuff. Our stuff.  We have a lot of “Stuff”.

 She made a casual observation to me this week. She asked me if I realized that I never blogged about her. Nothing personal, she said. She just wondered if I realized it. And that got me to thinking…….. hmmmmmm.

What kind of mother am I?  Well…..

I’m the kind of mother that when your only child arrives at the airport I take pictures of my dog sitting on the baggage claim  while you get your own bag.

Geez. I suck.

In my defense, since I don’t really have T.H. to blog about anymore, I’m really hard up for material. Is she offering herself up? Or is she saying I’m a bad mother?

Personally, I think she’s offering herself up. I could never understand why she might think I’m a bad mother.  (As I ask her to take a picture of  me kissing my pony) I was only trying to protect her privacy. But hey, she’s way past the age of consent.

 Way past.

So what kind of mother am I?




That kind…

Love,   Cowgirl Red    aka  Terah

P.S.  and Morgane too!

    I think all of us Mothers ask ourselves this question from time to time. My children don’t even read my blog. Ha…. They wouldn’t know if I wrote about them or not. I don’t write about them though. I figure no one wants to hear me brag about them or say how much I love them. They are busy with their lives. I am busy with mine. It is sweet that your daughter would like to see herself on your blog. Obviously she reads it. She deserves a little face time just for that reason IMHO.

    • Yes Lisa, I could brag all day and night. Mostly I love to laugh …… at us. xoxo Terah

  2. As the mother of 5 boys ( now grown) I ask myself that X5 all the time. Wish I had some sage advice. All I know is we do the best we can with what we know and have and leave the rest to God. They do like to hang out here sometimes especially if there is food involved, so I suppose I did some things right.

  3. You have a great daughter, she is like her mother and I am so thankful I got to meet you both. Beautiful! Cheri

  4. Great post…yes you do have a lot of stuff. So have I and so have my two girls….must be a mother daughter thing. I very rarely mention my girls on my blog. Like most mothers I could talk the hind legs off a donkey talking about them. We do the best we can as Mothers. Let’s face it, girls especially I think tell their Mothers’ if they’re going wrong. Mine do anyway. If you can laugh, cry, laugh, shout, cry, laugh, hug …in my book, your doing OK!!!! 🙂 x
