My husband and I have always known we wanted a bigger family.
When we decided to have another baby both our other children honestly were nothing but *delightful* not they aren't delightful now but things change and children go through phases . Honestly, Ginger was really still just a baby and little Milton was still so innocent and angelic.
Whenever I would here people talk about "the terrible two's" I never understood what the big deal was. Little Milton had NEVER had anything of a tantrum I heard other mother's talk about!
Ginger has always been very spirited, even since she was a baby!
She takes after me I suppose.....SIGH!!!!
Yes, I can be quiet the handful when I want to be and her true colors didn't start coming out until a couple months ago and my sweet little Milton I think has been left with less attention than he was used to because of Ginger's episodes.
So in turn, he too started to act out.
And you know what?
It's what toddlers do!!!!!
Each and every day I pull out every strand of patience I have left inside me and that's okay too.
No one ever said having 3 babies in 3 years would be easy!
Far from it!
And most days........at this time, after the chaos and mess and noise is over with, I sit here in silence thinking about how much I love these kids, I adore these kids, I would give my life for them in a split second.
They are my world, my every thing, the reason I life and breathe every day.
Yes, there are struggles, there are tantrums, there is screaming, hitting, banging, and kicking but above all that
there is L*O*V*E, a HUGE abundance of love!!!!!
There is no way for me to describe what I see when I look at these little people........I see little angels.
So innocent, so good and pure in their little souls just asking for guidance and attention and love.
I feel so honored that they chose me to be their mama, they chose me to be their guide in life.
What an amazing honor that is!!!
Honestly, the greatest honor anyone could be rewarded.
