We are Family

Hey guys. I have been invited to participate in a Thanksgiving special to write a post each day until Thanksgiving for things I am grateful for. I have so much to be grateful for in my life so it’s an easy write. I will write them in no particular order. They will be a little shorter than usual as there will be a few more blogs this week.Screenshot_20181120_204017Firstly, my partner is fab. In fact he probably deserves a medal the shit he has had to put up with from me sometimes. Let’s just say I can be a little bit led by my emotions at times. He has supported me through 2 episodes of depression, the most recent being by far the most difficult for me. He is patient when I am being fussy and tolerates lots of my nonsense. Don’t get me wrong he’s not a bloody Saint! But I am so grateful for him to be in my life. He has an amazing sense of humour and makes me laugh daily. He has the most rotting smelling bum and it’s testimony that I love him because after he’s been in the bathroom for 20mins I want to burn it down!Screenshot_20181120_204149

My children. I’ll start with my 2 eldest. The gamer 16 and the princess 12. These are my bonus children and how lucky am I that they are great kids! I think I was a pretty difficult step child myself until I was much older but these two are fab. I mean they are great kids all round. They have miles of patience with my 6year old and boy does he push it sometimes! It’s also lovely to have another girl in the house because I’m outnumbered here, even the dog is a boy! She is also a fantastic helper especially with the baby. We won’t discuss the tidiness of her bedroom but you can’t have all hey! The minion 6 and the munchkin 11 months. Are my 2 teeny tiny blessings. I love how much they adore each other and have started to play now that the baby is bigger. They make each other laugh and us laugh. These are the reasons I get out of bed every day. They are my raison d’etre.Screenshot_20181120_205038.jpg

The babies face though!!

My parents and sister have given me so much support over the years. From failed tests to teenage heartbreaks to grown up problems. My parents especially, helped me out so much with my first son when he was teeny. I don’t know how I would have ever managed without their support. I really don’t. Just recently I broke my arm and my mum came to stay and help every day that my partner went to work. She is a bloody superhero that woman I tell you.Screenshot_20181120_205256.jpg

Family is the greatest gift of all.Screenshot_20181120_203923

Love and peace xxScreenshot_20181120_211427.jpg

CRUNCHY ON THE OUTSIDE, SOFT ON THE INSIDE. That probably sums me up perfectly. I haven't written an about me since I joined a dating site in 2009. That wasn't my header for that site by the way! Anyway, that was a lifetime ago in another world (thankfully). But I still feel tongue-tied (type-tied?) as to what to put in this section. I would love it to flow and sound like I am some kind of pro, I have even googled what makes a good about me but in all honesty I am just a mum trying to write about my life to help me make sense of it all. I am a mum to 4 fabulous children. I gave birth to 2 of them and a bonus 2 ❤️. The Gamer is 16, the Princess is 12, the Minion is 6 and the Munchkin is almost 1. Things i write about are things that inspire me, some things will hopefully be funny, I will also write about my journey through post-natal depression with anxiety and what has helped me. I hope you enjoy my blog. I am one of Mybump2babys favourite bloggers
