Today I am sorry. Every day I am sorry about something or many things. Eden has me publicly apologising through her Fresh Horses Brigade.

I'm sorry that some mornings I can't get out of bed.
I'm sorry I'm not fun or run around with you.
I'm sorry that you get up early and watch movies all morning while I lay in bed.
I'm sorry I'm not a good mother all the time.

I'm sorry that you have carried the burden of my half of the workload while working two jobs.
I'm sorry that you feel like you have to do extra to make me comfortable like clean the house.
I'm sorry I make you feel like you aren't appreciated.
I'm sorry I fart too often in front of you.

I'm sorry I don't see you more often.
I'm sorry I'm not a better friend.
I'm sorry I'm not a better family member.
I'm sorry I don't buy you gifts often.

I'm sorry I'm stronger rather than weaker like you wanted.
I'm sorry I'm happy with and love my family.
I'm sorry I conceived both my children with ease.
I'm sorry I don't want you in my life or like you in any way.

I'm sorry I'm proud of my son.
I'm sorry I know I'll be proud of my daughter.
I'm sorry I'm proud of my family; parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents.
I'm sorry I'm proud of my friends.
I'm sorry I'll boast about the above.

Are you sorry for anything?


  1. I don't have much to say in response, these "sorry" posts are all so powerful. Just wanted you to know I was reading x

    1. Thanks Louisa. They're a pretty amazing collection of posts.

  2. Some unexpected giggles (the farts and the boasting) and much intensity. So glad you shared your sorries.
    The "conceived with ease" hit a spot, cos I know how hard I try to not resent people who concieve easily, not to let them see my envy and frustration because it's not their fault I have problems. I am sorry others haven't been as courteous.

    1. All I am sorry for ;)
      I think it's hard for both parties when conceiving is so easy. I know I felt guilty and put off telling certain people when I fell pregnant because I knew they were trying so hard and I didn't have to. It's hard situations but important to not let it interfere with friendships.

  3. True love is being able to fart in front of someone. How do I know that? Because I married the only guy whom I've ever done that in front of. And thankfully didn't marry the guy who I was too nervous to even let think I used the toilet - EVRER Cue UTI's all the bloody time because I was too embarrassed to pee.
    Great post - love it!

    1. Kel I so know what you mean! I've had similar experiences, not fun at all. It's funny how something everyone does and is natural is so taboo!

  4. Great post, thanks for sharing! :)

  5. Wow, powerful stuff. You are so brave and strong Ames. You really are. A-M xx

    1. Thank you wonderful. You are so much more stronger and braver, a true inspiration. If I could only be half of what you are xxx

  6. I LIVE THIS. I love your sorries, Ames. They are a mixed and glorious bag.

    "I'm sorry I don't want you in my life or like you in any way."



    1. Thank you wonderful lady.
      You are a force to be reckoned with and these collections of posts are proof of that.

  7. Beautiful post Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses

    1. Thank you.
      Those fairy wishes and butterfly kisses are wonderful :)


Just like everyone else I LOVE comments and they make me SMILE. I'll reply as soon as I can, but please know that I appreciate and read EVERY single comment. Thanks xxx
