Random thought of the day popped into my head. I have created 5 beautiful, loving children. So in all 50 tiny fingers and 50 tiny toes! Now that’s a lot of digits…… ✋🏻🤚🏻✋🏻🤚🏻✋🏻🤚🏻✋🏻🤚🏻✋🏻🤚🏻
It dawned on my as my 41st birthday is rapidly approaching…how Scary 😱Am I really that old? Old enough to be married and have birthed 5 kids?!? Lol 🤣 One minute I’m throwing some serious shapes at the local discotheque, where I met Mr Maddog ❤️! I was a spring chicken back then at 19 years of age, way back in the 1990’s…….the next minute, in the blink of an eye, I’m the wrong side of 40 and more like an old nesting hen! I’ve not slept more than 5 hours a night in 6 months, not washed my hair for 2 weeks (grim but true) and I’m looking like I got dragged through a hedge backwards (twice). I ache from my eyeballs To my little toes BUT being mum is so rewarding it’s worth all the pain, upset, tiredness and emotional turmoil.
As what we get in return from our kids in love & laughter FAR outweighs all that other stuff. We created life (lots of it!) and what a whole range of personalities they all are!!
My kids amaze me everyday (even though the big ones can be little shits sometimes ) They test our patience to the max till you think your gonna explode but they also melt my heart with their clever, funny antics 😍I find myself often singing strange random songs out of nowhere? Dancing round the living room like I’m having some kind of convulsion 🤣but hey who cares we do have a laugh! Chuckling away at someone trumping rather loudly (yes I still find that funny!) Living with 4 boys and the hubby, unfortunately it’s a house full of flatulence! 😮💨😷 I admit I’m quite immature at times but hey who wants to be a boring grown up anyway?!
Now I have my little lady in my life too in amongst all this testosterone. I love all my boys dearly but a pink one at last!💕 ….. somehow I think she will be the boss of them all and have them all wrapped around her little finger (probably the middle one) 🤣 She will be a tomboy just like her mumma.
So on reflection of my random thoughts tonight …….. cherish every waking moment with your babies they don’t stay little for long. Enjoy them, play games with them, act silly with them and make memories.
Enough of my rambling on, its 2am and I’m trying to get Little Miss Annie to settle as she’s not well. I desperately need my beauty sleep 😴💁🏻so until next time it’s goodnight from her and good night from me.😘 xxx
