Dear Daughter: Jelly arms

jelly-37810_640Dear daughter,

Granted, I am quite a bit older than you and that I am not as firm as I once was… Yes, I know that you do spend a fair amount of time in the car being shuttled around and you don’t make much of a fuss about it, and there’s not always that much to look at; but I’d like you to know – in the kindest possible way – that it is not necessary to remind me on each and every journey, that as I drive over speed bumps, holes in the road, etc, that the skin on my arms and legs “wobbles about like a jelly”. I realise that you think it’s hilarious and something you feel I need to know about but I’m here to tell you that I’m happy enough not hearing about it….OK? Good. Glad we’ve got that sorted now.

  1. It’s good though that she feels able to make that comment in fun; you’ve fostered an open environment which will reap rewards later I’m sure.

It's your turn. What do you think? Does this resonate with you? Leave a comment and tell us why.
