The quick facts. They are 10 years apart in age (almost exactly, Dad is a December 22 birthday and Mum is a December 30 birthday, Christmas in the middle, niece on the 1st of Jan - fan-jolly-tastic present wise!) This fact always intrigued me as a child (the age gap), and I figured I could date any male up to 10 years older than myself for a big chunk of my life ... lol
Mum had my sister at age 20, and me at age 22, so when she was my age I was 17 and almost moving out of home (and back again, and out again, and back again, and out again) and I haven't even started having kids yet .... we're working on it.
Dad is a farmer and the PERFECT man. I love my Dad to bits (yes I am a Daddies girl). Kind and fun, and all children seem to gravitate towards him. Yep, I always wanted a man 'just like my Dad'.
My mother refuses to have her photo taken so I have to take them on the sly. Dad isn't so keen on them either, but he puts up with it because he loves me.
Speaking of which we hardly ever (closer to never) tell each other that we love each other, it's just an unspoken known.
They currently live 3.5 hours drive away, and I would see them close to once a month. I don't like being so far away from family, but am fortunate I can get home so often.
So that was MY PARENTS!
I LOVE YOU MUM AND DAD! (Shhhhh it's a secret)
