I make no excuse for being proud of my boys. We've been through so much and on this day when they've become teenagers, despite driving me mad sometimes, they have turned into a pair of fine young lads. Unfortunately the behaviour of their father is a constant blight but we manage to get past the games and nonsense with barely a blip.
If I end my days know as a good mum and loved by my boys then that is all I can ask for. This might be a tough few months ahead but I can think on that to get me through.
