Mothers

The are things my mother did not teach me, how do you raise a daughter who is already raising herself?
She says she is glad to have had a daughter even though it was not in her grand plan, this after 12 years is still the elephant in my room.
The are things my mother did not teach me, like how to use pads and not to fear the blood, but how do you raise a daughter who is already raising herself.
The are things my mother did not teach me but I made sure I learnt them,
Things like how to shave unwanted hairs, buying toiletries, having my own money on dates and how to say no to that boy called Trouble because he is not my type he is no ones types,
The are things my mother did not teach me, things like not every Queen needs a King to build a castle and sometimes the princess doesn’t need to be rescued from the burning  building she is using it as a diversion to escape the castle.
My mother says she is glad to have had a daughter and I love her more each passing day…
