Having kids teaches you sooo many things. It opens you right up to unconditional love and it tests the absolute fuck out of your patience. How can you love them sooo much and yet they annoy you like crazy, frustrate the crap out of you and drive you to insane places with in you?
We are a blended family. Dave and l together have Kirra and together 5 kids from previous marriages.
We also have a mr nobody that lives with us. Do you have one of them?
You know the one that leaves the toilet roll empty or throws it on the floor.
Pee on the toilet set. Or has a poo and doesn't flush 💩👿
Leaves food out.
Leaves toys out every where.
Towels on the floor
Oh and hides the tv remote. Because none of the kids used it last and left the tv on
Leaves lights on
Clothes on floor
I'm sure if your a parent you know what I'm talking about.
And yet we love them sooo much, our heart feels like it's going to explode.
While taking some family pictures the other day a lady walking by was like "are they all yours?" My reply " yes, we are a blended family"
Family photos are fun. Goes like this:
Put your tongue away
Move forwards - so they move backwards instead
When you tell one to stop something, the other starts
And it goes on and on
After that you feel like a big strong drink 🍷🍸and you take the best pic and that will do.
Would l change it???
The 5 kids are amazing. They get on so well. Sure they have their moments and I mean shitty moments however on the whole they get along!! They are amazing older sibling to their baby sister, Kirra. Watching them with her is such a blessing. They are nurturing, caring, loving, playful and protecting!!! And she loves them!!
Being a mum has been and is the hardest thing, with the most amazing rewards too.
I have learnt and grown sooo much and I am grateful for all these little beings being in my life. Although in this family photo my third baby, Isaac isn't in there (stilborn at 27 weeks) he is always in our hearts 💙
Having Kirra was such a blessing and most challenging. After Isaac dying when l was 27 weeks pregnant, there was so many fears that came up carrying Kirra and at times anxiety sky rocketed. I was blessed to have lots of love and support, especially Dave!!!
Kirra has been amazing in helping with my grief and healing. Facing my fears has been hard and scary and yet so rewarding. I get to look in her if beautiful eyes and I am so grateful I took the leap of faith and became her mum!!
What do your kids challenge you with?
How have you grown since becoming a parent?
Do you have a mr nobody?
Blessings & Love
