Back to Normal

School and normal routine I mean - I think I'm way past normal now! The sun was shining today but it was so cold - but I do prefer it to rain. The above necklace was definately influenced by the sun - I love that amazonite focal and of course the ivory pearls just show it off to perfection.

I also made some more of my planets - these are so light and easy to wear - I'm hoping to keep these as part of my basic silver range, inexpensive and fun. I love the pattern on these - now I'm not giving away any trade secrets but you'd find it hilarious if I did tell you how it came about - but I won't because then I would have to kill you!! :)

Now I'm going to have a little rant - please feel free to scroll to the bottom for my final pic ;)
Any one with children will understand the protection we feel for them - my daughter is six and although we joke about her going on sixteen, she is a child who is in love with the idea of princes and princesses, unicorns, fairies and magic. She does say she has a true love but that's not because she understands but because she adores Disney classics (Ie Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty) so imagine my shock (and horror) when she asked her Daddy if it were true - and in childs wording asks him about sex!!! Now I'm no prude, I tell her the truth (But on a need to know basis - its quite easy to change the subject without actually lying) but I do not want her learning about the birds and bees from another child at school (same child that told her there is no such thing as Santa Claus) So any Mum reading this who likes to tell your children everything can you spare a thought for those of us who would like our children to stay as innocent as the day they were born for as long as possible. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
OK after my sounding off :D I'll leave you there until next time ....

Hey, its sad isn't it when a little piece of your child's innocence slips away, especially when its at someone else's bidding....

I'm always being accused of being an over strict mother as my boys aren't allowed to do many of the things that their friends are....I don't think I'm over strict, over protective sometimes maybe, but hey, isnt that what being a mother is about.......

Lovely lovely lovely jewellery as always!!!!

Fantastic jewellery as always my matey.
Dont worry about your little princess - kids ask the worst possible questions and normally at the most opportune moments!!
Loads of love

Oh dear. I feel for you. I had to have the conversation with Kevin when he asked why he didn't have any brothers or sisters. Well, I had to tell him mommy couldn't have any more kids. "Why?" One question after another and then before I knew it I was explaining to him where babies came from and how! Geez! But I figured I'd be the one to do it since I wanted him to understand what everything is for and how it works and that the purpose of boobs was to feed a baby!!! Ha! I made sure I got that point across seeing as how I nursed him for 28 months! He hasn't asked anything more about it! I just hope he's not the one to tell someone else's kid about it!

Oh, and here's something else...you've been tagged!

(now, it doesn't bother me a bit if you choose not to play. It's totally up to you. I will not be offended in the least as I know how time consuming it can be.)

But if you do choose to play, here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

And have fun! ;)

Thanks Ginger - she actually knows where babies come from, breastfeeding etc (Like you I can't have anymore children and have had to explain this, and breatfed for 12 months) It was the graphic discription of what a man does to a woman that upset us and Elli :(

Ooooh, I see! That's a toughie!

Oh I missed this! It always worries me when I hear that kind of thing - like - where DID that other child learn that?
