Four kids! Who would have ever thought it?
I was warned against having 4 kids. Others who had “been there, done that” told me how hard it would be.
And they were right. It IS hard. Bloody hard sometimes. There are days when the noise is just too much, when the bickering and fighting has gone on long enough, and when the mess really gets to me.
There are plenty of days like that.
So what makes it all worthwhile?
The love. There is so much love in our house. And where there is love, there is happiness. Happiness always blossoms when it’s paired with love.
Now, maybe I am writing this because it’s Valentines Day tomorrow, maybe I have love on the brain because the stores have “LOVE” everywhere. The flowers, the cards, the chocolates – they are EVERYWHERE. But I don’t need them to know how lucky I am, because I have 4 beautiful, albeit trying sometimes, children at home that remind me every single day, and every single night.
And do you know what they say to me?
“I love you, to the sun and back, plus to infinity and beyond. Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite, see you in the morning. I love you so much, I love you super super much, I’m really really proud of you!”
Every single night. What a great way to end the day.
