First kiss 

Teenager came bouncing through the front door this afternoon. 
Her face said it all! She didn’t just have the glowing cheeks of someone walking on a chilly autumn evening. 
Oh no. This girl is positively glowing! I couldn’t help it 


(Tried desperately to be parent like, turned in to over excited big sister, oh well!) 

“The boy. THE boy I’ve been talking you about since the start of school. Him. OMG. We were both so nervous! So very nervous. Do you remember your first kiss? Omg. I’m so happy we were behind the sheds, near the bike sheds. Ahhh. Yay. I think we are “going out” now. It was not just a kiss. We are now going out. But in secret. But oh my god I now feel like my tummy is all upside down” 

This delivered with the high pitched breathless enthusiasm that only a teenage girl can muster! 
Ahh bless her. This excitement, I know, will invariably be followed by a snotty nosed distraught teenager at some point, and I’ll be here with Kleenex and hot chocolate (until she’s old enough for vodka and swearing) 
But for now, I will listen to her excitedly chatter on about how maybe they could go to Costa, or maybe even the Cinema for their first date, and can myself or Mike drive them? Pretty please?

Ahh. Young love’s first kiss. It’s so sweet! 

update March 2017: There have been plenty more teenage romances, one even serious enough for us to meet his parents, alas- it didnt last. Now as she heads in to the world of mock exams her focus is on her studies. (yay!)

(And no, I actually cannot remember my first kiss, but I can tell you that after 5 years together, I still get butterflies every time hubby and I kiss!)

    1. There was no way she could hide it! She was glowing! So glad we have such a good bond and can share things like this! I do dread the day our babies are old enough for this type of story though! 🙈


    1. I think it helps that I’m her half sister as well as her guardian! I definitely wouldn’t have been telling my mum about stuff like this as a teen! (And also slightly dreading the day our one year old is old enough for stuff like this!) Thank you so much for having me on #TweensTeensBeyond

    1. Ha! I can’t remember mine either! (Probably not a bad thing!) Alas Claire’s first kiss is forever blogged on to the internet. Perfect wedding speech material! 😂 thanks for popping over! X

    1. It’s pretty amazing the bond we have. Although I’m technically old enough to be her mother, we are most definitely sisters. Right down to our mannerisms. It’s so wonderful seeing her blossom in to a confident young woman. It makes me excited (and a little bit scared!) for when my little little ones are teens. Thankfully that’s a long way off! Thanks for popping over! X


  2. Ah, bless her – and you for being so cool. I remember mine! That’s one for her diary. Glad the exams are back at the forefront – is that a sigh of relief I hear from you? Thank you for joining us again at #TweensTeensBeyond Nicky

    1. Ha! I was only just cool! Definitely a sigh of relief. Her report card came through this week. She’s on target and improving every term. I’m so proud of the young woman she is becoming. Thank you for popping over. X
