Following on from dear husband, what confession do you have to make to your dc? (Not too serious by the way) I'll start.
Dear sons. When we moved and you couldn't find your box of "precious things" total junk ? We didn't pack it. Sorry.

Dear dd3,

Sometimes I book to see theatre shows that I want to see and pretend I am only going for you. You don't know it yet but you have begged me to take you to see 'What the Ladybird Heard' in April wink

Love mummy

Darling DC I may have polished off the last of your Easter eggs on a number of occasions after they'd been in the cupboard for a while. They went so well with a late night glass of wine Sorry, and thanks x thanks

cuggles Tue 18-Feb-14 12:24:23

Oh yes jugging..dear ds and dd (2 and 4) ...you got twice as many easter eggs as you think you got! Also, the drum kit daddy bought you (!) Isnt broken. Sorry

Dear DS

It is true that Daddy is allergic to cats and dogs. And probably many other critters covered in fur.

But he's almost certainly not allergic to goldfish.

Love you lots
Mummy x

Thanks emotional and check

I'm at a low point in my parenting, I've been moaning about ds8 not listening on a few threads. I don't know what to do anymore, I shout, I huff n puff - after the usual warnings etc

thinking101 Tue 18-Feb-14 12:36:01

I fear all he will remember if his middle childhood is his mother taking giddy fits on him for not listening. It holds us up with whatever we are doing, whenever we are getting ready to go out, it spoils our enjoyment and interaction together as a family.

We are on holiday at moment. He is running around having a great time making friends and playing in adventure thing, I'm sat here feeling crap for how the day started. DH is trying to cheer me up but I feel flat.

Dear DC
I didn't throw out your Christmas chocolate because it had gone out of date...I ate it.
Butlins hasn't sunk in all the rain and we are waiting for it to be rebuilt.....I cant face another holiday there.
I know you think daddy is fantastic....he really isn't and when you get older you will realise that same as your gp are useless too.
I know I told you if you dont behave today we wont go to the party tomorrow....we will there will be adults there and wine and mummy needs to be with both right now....thanks for bring so good that I can mn in peace though wink

yourlittlesecret Tue 18-Feb-14 12:37:55

Dear DS1. I am only pretending to be thrilled and excited about the prospect of you leaving home and going to university, because that is my job as a mother. Roots and wings and all that.

Inside I am howling with anguish.

grin marking place till I have time!

Dear ds2, I am so sorry that I spent years struggling to bond with you and had to fake it, you have turned out to be a son in a million despite this and we are closer than close. I hope desperately that you never realise that all those hugs and kisses were because I kept a tally of the genuine ones that I gave your brother so that you didn't miss out instead of being heartfelt. Believe me when I say that I will always feel bad about your early years and hope that I am making it up to you now.
Love you, Mutty xx

Oh that raised a tear insanity

GoofyIsACow Tue 18-Feb-14 12:45:23

Oh thinking thanks for you

You are doing agreat job smile

Dear DS1,
Not all the meat you eat is 'chicken'
Mummy

Dear all DS's
There is a good chance quite a few of your toys that you never look at until i box them up to sell will 'go missing' in the house move... Just so you know!
Mummy

Thanks gofey

Insanity...you are not alone. Bastard PND.

GertyD Tue 18-Feb-14 12:50:55

Dear DS1,
Those three months where I had lots of emergency cases at work and had to work late so regularly? Well, actually I had just discovered a really great friend for the first time in years and we were going to the pub and having the youth we never had. If was the summer of 2009 and all seemed good grin

ToffeeOwnsTheSausage Tue 18-Feb-14 12:59:49

thinking101 - cakebrewwine I hope you are okay. I am in the same place as you.

Dear All My Children

I am sorry you drew the short straw and got me as a mummy. I love you so much but it is becoming apparent love isn't enough. You have to know what you are doing, have temper control and instincts.

Thankfully you have an amazing Dad who isn't scared of you.

Elderberri he's 24 now and a joy, we enjoy each other's company immensely and he gets lots of hugs and kisses to make up for what he might have missed. I feel like I "got away with it" because he has turned out really well despite the bumpy beginning. Sorry it happened to you too sad

Queenofknickers Tue 18-Feb-14 13:04:03

Dear son, that hamster you love? It's not the original one living longer than a hamster ever has. The cat ate the original one because you left the cage open. She only ate the front half and left the back half on the rug. Knew you'd be gutted so got a replacement to spare you angst.
Love
Mum

missmagnum Tue 18-Feb-14 13:08:02

Dear DS

It was me that broke your toy aeroplane, I stood on it sorry.

I don't know what I would do if I ever actually got to 3, when using counting to 3 as a warning. I'm very glad you do as you're told by 2.

You could eat a million pieces of fruit and veg but I doubt it would ever actually enable you to do backflips like Sportacus hmm.

I am just pretending to have fun when playing power rangers and fireman sam, I'm really sorry but I don't actually enjoy it. But I do a damn good job of pretending to, don't I?

When I pretend to be a bit cross about you getting in bed with me, I actually love it and miss you on the nights you don't grin.

Love mummy

Dear DC blush

When Max the goldfish died from swim bladder disease I didn't gently lower him into the river saying the Lord's Prayer I flushed him down the toilet. I know we had a little service with a candle and prayers the next day but you were both so upset about what had happened to him I didn't have the heart to tell you. 11 years on I still don't think I can and I still feel awful for flushing him down and not realising it might upset you before it was too late.

Love mum

LtEveDallas Tue 18-Feb-14 13:34:48

Dear DD,

Hotch and Potch didn't eventually escape and stay away, they died. Thankfully with their houdini antics and nesting all over the bloody house you believed me.

Oh and that breakfast item that we have once a month and you profess to love. I call it Gypsy Toast for you, but it's Eggy Bread. You won't eat anything 'eggy' so I renamed it.

Sorry blush

Dear DS2 and DS3, I am incredibly proud of you for moving 100 miles away and starting new lives for yourselves and following your dreams to do the jobs/careers/ fun things that you want to do. I love both of your girlfriends dearly-they are the daughters I would have picked.
BUT I MISS YOU BOTH SO GODDAMNED MUCH AND I KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO STAY UP THERE AND I HATE IT!

Normalisavariantofcrazy Tue 18-Feb-14 13:45:23

Dear DC

I don't register half of what you tell me because you need to learn to pause for breath occasionally.

I'm so pleased you're off out today and I can enjoy a day watching the tv and pretending to do DIY because I really need a break from your chatter!!

Shut up!

Love you loads though

MeanAndMeaslyMiddleAges Tue 18-Feb-14 13:48:23

I think I'm going to ask my mum if the cat really did run away...

dashoflime Tue 18-Feb-14 13:54:36

Dear DS,

Your Toys are not broken- I just refuse to replace the batteries.
I will probably relent on the Thomas one though- because you look so sad trying to make it go
