I love my little family. We have had such a lovely summer and I just feel so lucky sometimes to be the mummy of my two gorgeous kiddies and partner of my wonderful hubby. Of course, life isn’t perfect (as perfect doesn’t exist) but it is pretty close. The kids drive me bonkers pretty frequently and hubs and I bicker about the usual day to day stuff and wind each other up, but in general life is good.
The kids are growing up so much and I know people say it doesn’t get easier, that the challenges are just different as they grow, and I get that, I do. But personally, I find the challenges of a toddler and a preschooler (almost at school, eek) easier to manage than the challenges of a baby and a toddler. I just do.
I feel incredibly lucky when our kids are just playing happily together and we are all having a lovely time together. It’s everything I’ve ever hoped for really.
Ok, going to stop the soppiness now and get to our Me and Mine shot for this month. Taken by our friend Chris, the lovely hubby of the equally lovely Sarah at Run, Jump, Scrap. We had a lovely day at their gorgeous Gremlin’s birthday party and Chris snapped this gorgeous shot of our little family. LM isn’t smiling which is a shame but that’s toddlers for you and it doesn’t detract from how lovely the piccy is. Thanks Chris!
That really is a lovely family shot! Can’t believe how quick August has gone!!!! #bestandworst
That is a lovely photo of the four of you and I’m with you on finding a toddler and a preschooler (almost schoolchild – eek!) easier than a baby and toddler. So glad that you have had a lovely summer and wishing Monkey all the best for the first day at school (and virtual hugs for you too!) x #meandmineproject
Ahhh what a gorgeous shot, Chris did well hehe. Lovely post and thanks for linking up #bestandworst
Oh it is a lovely photo – and her funny expression is definitely part of the charm!
Lovely photo and I agree, as they get older it seems to be more manageable for me too – don’t quote me when the teenage years hit though! x
