African Hips Don't Lie

A daughter is just a little girl who grows up to be your best friend.

#dateswithmydaughter Victoria was a wonderful time together this week. We went to Mugg & Bean in Cresta Shopping Centre– each time we congratulate ourselves on living on the edge, choosing such an exciting option – not. 😉

We laughed and spoke too much to take pictures of anything… but Dennis has served us before and seems content in bringing endless ice and the rosemary salt on the side to whatever we order.

It is a great joy to be able to spend hours talking with your 20-year-old mini-me. Not running out of subject matter. My daughter is a fascinating creature and I obviously love her, but I also like her very much.

I think this is something you only learn when your kids are older. You always love them, but you don’t always like them. Or like what they do.

We had to pick up a few things and getting in the car, I realised five hours had passed.

I love your crazy ass chicken. Sorry about making you and the brothers listen to Billy Connolly on the school drive. It helped my anxiety post-divorce at the time, but probably not character building for you. 🙈 I’m a flawed, human Mom… yet you are doing fabulously. I’m very proud of your achievements.

    1. Thank you for making #dateswithmydaughter possible. 🙂 #gratitude


  1. This is beautiful. It’s quite special I think that you can have this sort of relationship with all your children, you guys really just accept and love each other as is. When I was that age, my parents and myself were still solidly recovering from my teenage years and the battles we waged on each other. I don’t want that for N.

    1. Thank you. I guess it is one of those things I did because I wish I had that as a teenager. I’ve messed up plenty…. I’m also very hard on myself. I’ve dated all my kids in different ways and I would recommend it to every parent!
