Most of these women are parents of children my children go to school with. Which would make them fall in to the category of "Mums from School" or the much dreaded "School Mums". Sounds sexy doesn't it? School Mums. I can't recall ever saying "When I grow up I want to be a School Mum".

Last week I received a message from Whitney - (Daisy's Mum). We met about 18 months ago at the Fourth Little Travelers Nursery School. About once a week we'd meet by chance outside the classroom or in the playground and we'd have one of those conversations you have with someone you're just getting to know.

It was so much better than a party invitation.
Attached to the envelope was a post-it note "I saw this on Facebook, I hope you don't mind but I painted it"
Whitney is a Painter.
Whitney is a Mother.

Whitney is a sucker for volunteering at School.
Whitney gave me one of the most wonderful surprises I've ever received.
Whitney is so much more than a "School Mum".
If only I could fit all of that in to my "contacts" in my phone.
