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.

By the way (for Daughter 1) He is buried in the garden with the goldfish grin

Dear Daughter 1;

Your hamster didn't run away to go back-packing in his home country Syria like we said he did a year ago. The dog sat on him and crushed his poor little soul.

Love Mummy xxx
Dear Daughter 2;

Broccoli aren't miniature trees that are picked before they grow big.

Also, those geysers on holiday weren't troll dens and that egg smell?? It was sulphur..not troll farts.

Love Mummy xxx

MissMayhem My Mum made me practice my violin in the shed.

Dear just teenaged dd

I know I led you to believe that I came home in tears after you got out of the car this morning yelling 'well I don't love you' and stomped off.
I didn't. I came home and had a good old laugh with dad about you and your tantrums.
And I'm sorry I blackmailed you when you texted me after school about going to the youth club, and made you send me 19 kisses in a text before I would bring your clothes to your mate's house. But I do keep looking at the 19 kisses on my phone.
And FGS be careful at the youth club, it's your first time and there might be...boys.

Love Mum

Dear DTS,

I'm sorry I'm not strong enough to be the mum you need but I am so happy you have a wonderful 'second family' who give you everything you need. I love you all the way to the stars.

Dear DTD,

Our time together was all too brief and I'm so sorry that I will never get to watch you grow up like I will your DTbrother. I will love you forever

Blondiebrownie Fri 09-May-14 18:48:32

Dear DS2,

I know you hate vegetables but unfortunately you need them. Nearly every meal they are hidden within it, you have been eating vegetables all this time.

Love,

Mummy.

A magpie didn’t take your harmonica, it was in the garden because I threw it there.

headlesslambrini Fri 09-May-14 18:42:06

Dear Ds and Dd
The school will not electronically tag you if you skip school. I however will.
Love ya
Mum

missymayhemsmum Fri 09-May-14 18:33:08

Dear DD
Your violin practice doesn't sound lovely. It makes my teeth ache. But if we can both manage not to throw the violin across the room for 5 years or so it might sound tolerable.

SomeKindOfDeliciousBiscuit Sat 05-Apr-14 16:40:48

Haha! No rabbitlady , not consciously! But she recognises the heptagonal shape of the 50p and isn't really aware or bothered about other ones. I haven't made her aware, that's all!

rabbitlady Sat 05-Apr-14 12:27:29

ooh, you mean biscuit! have you really blagged your child that only 50p coins work the tractor? that's shocking!

SomeKindOfDeliciousBiscuit Sat 05-Apr-14 07:11:52

Darling, darling DD,
It's not just 50ps that make the tractor at Tesco work. You can have three goes for £1. But I worry that I overindulge you constantly and my only comfort in that is saying to myself, "well, she doesn't always get to ride the tractor". But because we usually go to asda you have been having a go every time we go to Tesco after all. I am trying not to spoil you, but I'll probably buy you that astronaut costume without waiting for your birthday because life's short and we can manage it.
Snuggle up, my baby,
Mummy xxx

Expatmomma Sat 05-Apr-14 06:28:17

Dear DS,

When you were 4 and noticed that Fishy the goldfish had come back from a trip to the vets with blue eyes instead of the black ones he had the day before.....

It was not "a really great injection" that changed the colour of his eyes. I lied!!!!! Fishy was flushed down Loo and we bought you a new one.

Sorry to have lied matey ... Love you

Dutch1e Thu 03-Apr-14 15:00:22

Dear threenager DS,

Be as smug and defiant as you like when you stuff your face with biscuits and lollies. I know they're oatcakes and dried fruit/veg.

Handsup Thu 03-Apr-14 09:46:21

Dear DS(14)

As you know, you're nut allergy must be taken seriously and food must be inspected when out with friends but you may also want to make sure you're not having fibs told to you with regards to what tasties REALLY contain nuts and what doesn't. For example, 50% of chocolate that I've bought home over the years doesn't really contain nuts, I lied. It's just Mum has these frequent weak, premenstrual moments and desperately needs to lock herself away and have an isolated scoffing session. I hope you understand. Oh and you know how we have to hide the treats from dad because he's such a glutton? Well, it was actually me munching through the goodies not dad.

Much love x

momofmonster Tue 01-Apr-14 12:50:52

dear ds

JellySnakesLadderedTights Thu 27-Mar-14 22:21:14

This thread should go in Classics!

Lemonylemon Wed 26-Mar-14 14:38:53

Dear DS: No, the tooth fairy doesn't really have stationery in the shape of a tooth to write you an IOU. I did that. It was really clever, wasn't it?

Slebmum Wed 26-Mar-14 13:15:11

Dear DDs

The battery doesn't run out on the ipad after 10 minutes.
Soda water isn't really a 'fizzy drink' but the longer you think it is the better
Your bloody annoying toot toot cars aren't being cleaned they've gone to the charity shop

TraceyTrickster Wed 26-Mar-14 12:45:43

Dear DD,

no the tooth fairy did not forget to call last night. Mummy (aka Tooth Fairy) completely forgot to go through the usual rigmarole.
Still you got your own back by complaining all day about it.

Luckily daddy gave the tooth fairy a kick up the bum and you now have $2 under your pillow.

sergeantmajor Tue 25-Mar-14 19:32:28

Dear DD,
I do know where your doll with the pink hair is. Halfway to an orphanage in Romania with the rest of the collection items. The doll was just too garish for my middle class sensibilities. Now go and play with the tasteful Liberty print bear.
