When my parents were having serious marriage problems due to my dad doing what he did, being six years older & in my mid teens at the time I was kind of a second mum for them so we are closer than normal sisters I guess & I don't like the thought of her going around with an Arctic Monkeys extra! She's really level headed just sometimes a bit naive & I'm finding it a bit hard to accept she's growing up. I haven't said anything to her because I don't think it's fair & if she has any problems etc she knows she can talk to me if she needs to, I just remember her learning to walk, her starting school etc etc & I don't like the thought of what her & her boyfriend might be doing.... Especially as I think she could do alot better. I don't think they are because she's asked me questions & I don't think she's at that age yet, she's not a typical loud & full of lip sixteen year old, she's into boys & stuff but she's not full on. I just can't help worrying about her a bit.
I almost feel like singing "hey, hey, you, you I don't like your boyfriend. No way, no way I think you need a new one" to her (an Avril Lavigne song, with a slight change of words). But that would be mean & childish & I can't sing so I think I'll leave it & stick to keeping quiet & keeping an eye on her.
Is this is what it's like to have kids & worry about them? Probably is, just magnified. I'm finding it hard enough now though, what will I be like with my own children?! Oh God, I'll probably be a right mother hen, my poor, poor future children! Lol
