  1. gorgeous post! I love singing and dancing like a crazy woman in front of my hubby and kids too, we may not sound amazing, but at least we are showing them it’s OK to be ourselves!

      So true Mackenzie! I am glad I’m not the only ‘crazy women’ – it must be a prerequisite to being a parent blogger 😉 x

    Kerry, I have just read this on facebook and absolutely love it. I run a fb page supporting parents with teenagers and wondered whether you would mind me sharing it with them? I love that you say your kids don’t believe you when you say they will grow in confidence but you keep telling them anyway. It reminds me of the analogy of growing a plant: not seeing anything but knowing the roots are busy growing.

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Hi Vicki, that is a great analogy. Of course you can share it with your facebook group, that would be great – thank you. I am so pleased that you liked the post 🙂 xx

    What a lovely blog Kerry, made me laugh and remember when my boys got to a certain stage, it was more ‘Oh Mother, really’, but I still sang on and made them laugh 😉

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Thanks Liz! Haha, I have already been told by at least my eldest ‘Mum, you are so embarrassing!’but they do it in a ‘but I love you anyway’ kind of way so I can work with that 😉 xx

  4. What a lovely post. My motto has always been “people should take me as I am and if they don’t like me its their problem not mine” and it is one that I try to encourage my Beans to remember too. Happy New Year xx

    If my daughter could work out who she is and accept herself for that she would start to become happy.

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      It’s so hard when you are young isn’t it Jo. If only we knew then what we know now, I think we would have all been more accepting of ourselves as children. xx

  6. This post is lovely, I really love the sentiment of it. Definitely keep up being true to yourself for this year!
    Thanks for linking up with #WeekendBlogHop!

    Loved it! I think i have The 2 sides of The coin with my girls one over confident and The other one just as you describe and even when I can experience both it is still worrying because you never know how cruel are They going to be and if I’ll get the door open to know from Them so I can help and give them all The advices I also needed maybe and I got sometimes and sometimes I wasn’t even sharing at all. Keep writing my dear. This makes it feel you are close.
