The Identity Thieves
When I had my first baby over 7 years ago my whole world changed… I know you know this happens, everyone says it; the world seems bigger and smaller simultaneously, not to mention scarier! Popping to the shops no longer exists, nor do last minute breaks away or nights out til 3am. When Josie was a few months old my cousin said something that has suck with me… “Don’t loose yourself in all of this”. At first I thought all of what?... I totally love the 100% dedication to my new daughter. But after a few years and a second child I realised I had lost a portion of me, even my name was different- Josie’s Mum or OfBoadie (watch Handmaids Tale for reference), I was 100% claimed as theirs.
It was like 2 tiny thieves came in the night and stole my identity (as well as my sleep) and replaced it with something that looked similar but in a parallel parenting universe, where I listen to Moanna not Moloko, dance to The Wheels on the Bus not Blur and opt for Andy’s Dinosaurs not Dirty Dancing.
So why am I posting all this… not so long ago we put out a poll for our FAMBINGO night (a gig at TF where families get together play some bingo, with singing and dancing… it’s a little bit crazy). The poll asked if you wanted to add a Disney theme or 90’s Brit Pop to the proceeding…. To my delight Brit Pop gained the higher percentage, you guys have great taste… our play list for the bingo will be rocking… (I was blur over Oasis btw). This got my thinking that not everything for the kids has to be totally saturated in their likes, wants, needs… Balance is key… we try to aim for this at TF- a space for all humans (I know how important it is to have a bit of you in the mix too)
