Over the years I've endured some really shit days out, really bloody boring. Not because I didn't like being out with my kids, no sir-reeeeee I love being with my kids, the shit days were mainly down to attractions being a total let down.
Hi I'm Sharon, blogger person trying to write about parenting with humour. Without it, I dont think I would make it through the day! Creator of Mummy Buck and her family. All drawings are my own, although with my drawing skills its doubtful anyone would claim them as theirs! <br> I live in Surrey with my husband and fab four, 2 girls & 2 boys and the fluffy one. I also seem to spend a lot of time reorganising and stomping on the ironing pile. <br> <br> When I'm not busy embarrassing my kids (their words), being mum, doing homework (don't ask, talking or socialising you will find my attempts at writing over at www.everyonesbuckstopshere.co.uk
School mornings are about waking up and swearing that tonight the kids really will go to bed before stupid o'clock and that you will not sit up watching <em>Nashville</em> and checking FB until 1.30am.

Been there, done that and lived to tell the tales of my teen hood! Only my tales of my teen years fall on deaf ears, namely my kids, when I start anything with "when I was a teenager......".

Getting ready to go out to the sounds of Whitney Houston, Spandau Ballet, Michael Jackson (even had his poster on my wall when he looked like he should) all on vinyl, to name but a few. It was a time when hair would survive any hurricane, rock hard from a can of cheap extra hold hairspray.

Overnight I became a woman, who went to bed but never slept, anxious with one ear open, listening for any sudden change in breathing. Constantly checking she was still breathing, when unsure I would poke her, instantly regretting it when she cried; only to repeat it all again later.

I am amazed my kid's secondary school haven't jumped on this bandwagon and put up a similar one. I have it on good authority from my kids that 'everyone' falls asleep in lessons. Now, not wanting to wrongly guess it's the lesson that sends them to sleep, it's probably due to not getting enough z's.

Some from the club of 'we don't lie to our kids about FC its damaging' say it's a form of control, threatening kids if they don't adhere but letting them believe they could end up on the naughty list. Damn right it is and one that I milk it for all its worth.

However, it seems that I too must mumble as when I ask, what I believe to be a simple question, such as "'have you done your homework?" his answer is usually yes, yet at bedtime he suddenly remembers that yep he does have homework triggering an explosive response from me pointing out he said he had, too which he swears he hadn't actually realised what I had meant!

I spent days and night googling her 'symptoms' ticking a lot of boxes led to the term 'Selective Mutism' reading the brief I wondered if this was my daughter? It certainly looked like it, but she wasn't refusing to speak it seemed like she was actually unable to.
