Me and my babies

Three under 3
For me yesterday was a difficult day, a day for quiet reflection and remembrance.

And yet, waking up with my little ones it was a day where they lived, and I was reminded of Mark Twain's words:
"Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt.
Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth."

That is the life I want for my children.

They bring so much joy to my life, it's by no stretch of the imagination perfect. The boys may go to sleep at 7 every night but they don't understand the concept of a lie-in! Squeaks may love her sleep, but she loves lots of attention in her waking hours. She gives the boys the best hugs, but still doesn't understand they don't like her full body weight being brought down on them.

I love every minute with my little people, even if that is more reflective than 'in the moment', I would rather be with them than without them.
