Brownstone Stoop

HI, My name is Molley Mills. I am mum to 3 children and a husband. Yep that’s right……. 28 yo Princess, 17 yo Grand Master D, 14 yo Miss Gremlin, and The King who insists he’s 7.. Lord help me :) We have a brain damaged dog named Sir Lickalot, He’s very special . We live in Harlem New York. Landing here from Australia in 2005 with 9 suitcases…….and a “we will conquer all” attitude! Let me tell you sometimes we’re not sure who’s conquering whom. For a long time the King has been telling me I should write a book about my thoughts on child rearing. He said I should share the wisdom because no kids are as good as ours! Well I’m sure they’re not perfect, nor am I but I can see so many things that are the current norm that I would never do. I’ve learned though, sometimes the hard way, that you just have to shut your mouth and let people screw it up even when you KNOW how to help them. If they don’t ask…. DON’T offer… Now a book sounded like too much commitment so here I am in the blogosphere! I don’t claim to know anything and I get it wrong lots but I have some funny things to share. If nothing else I know there are many of you who can relate to how hard it is to get this parenting thing right……

I learned to drive on a tractor
I’ve been in a rollover
There are very few pictures of me pregnant
I once got up at 3am to change the sheets so I could sleep
Im nervous of the ocean
I watch tv too much
Im a little addicted to news
Saxophone moves my soul
I have lots of patience
I kick arse at archery, the king never knew until I beat him.
Geography and History are very interesting to me, though I failed geography in high school.
One day I’d love to share the country life experience with my kids for longer than a holiday.
I’ve been in love with the King for 22 years
I have a problem with badly behaved children
Manners are essential
I love my kids a little bit more when they’re asleep
Once I vacuumed the terrace
I’m a weather watcher
I’ve lived in placed with koalas and kangaroos at the back door
I’ve experienced life’s full circle
Im very loyal but hold a grudge 🙁
I grew up around guns but see no place for them in city life
I’ve broken in a horse
I’ve taught old dogs new tricks
Sometimes New York beats me up
I love the sun and the moon
I sometimes swear in front of my kids unintentionally
I’m a step monster mother
I’m good friend with my husband’s ex
Although I’d love to live in the 1900’s I need electricity more
