My parenting idol has to be Lorelai Gilmore from ‘The Gilmore Girls’ (If you’ve never watched it, find it now on Sky and start recording). I just love the way she is best friends with her daughter Rory. In one espisode at Rory’s graduation Rory gives a speech and says,

If my children can look back one day and say something similar about me, I will feel like I succeeded in my job as a mother. With that in mind, we’ve been listening to more music, here are my girls embracing the 80s ( I think ).
