What I Do For One, I Do For All

Last night we attended yet another Year Eight welcome evening at our sons High School. It is an event that is held each year so that the parents of the "new" High School students can mingle, and introduce themselves to their children's home room and subject teachers, year advisor and principal.
For us, it was our fourth time attending this information evening so most of the teachers I already knew. Yes, most teachers at the school by now know me by name and I am often greeted with the knowing smile of "here she comes again" !

I am often asked why I continue to attend these school functions time and time again when I already know "the drill" when it's the same thing year in year out.

It's simple....
What I do for one of my children, I do for all. No matter how many principal speeches I have to sit through, and lets face it, they are ALL the same :) and no matter how many tours of the same school I have to take, it doesn't matter, for each time I do these things with each of my sons it's a bonding time, it's magical. To see how each of them enjoy new experiences and their individual reactions is something that as a mother brings me happiness and joy, and I do not want to miss out on a single event or experience that involves my boys.

No matter how many children I have, I believe that they all deserve my equal attention and interest in all that they do. So yes, if that means attending the same functions and listening to the same speeches, I am there !

  1. I only have two little ones but I am already very careful about the doing for one, must do for the other thing! I'm even going to make exactly the same 1st birthday cake for my little boy as I made for my little girl - a big heart!

    1. It's important to be there for all our kids no matter how many, they are all equally important and deserve our full attention. Your little ones are lucky to have you xx

  4. What a lovely post and I absolutely agree with this. It is so important to show support to each of your kids and the younger ones shouldn't miss out just because you've already gone through it with their older siblings. All the best for the fourth time around!

    1. Thanks Kristy, it is important to support our kids equally, and your so right the younger ones should never miss out just because they were not the first born. Thanks for stopping by xx

  5. Congratulations on your 100th blog post! Yes - showing support equally is so important. We only have one child but I see my friends deal with the issue regularly. Your children will remember your continued commitment to each of them!

  6. This year was the first time I didn't go, because it is always the same, and you don't do it with the kids anyway.
    Be different if they were involved. :)
