Having a family of three boys isn’t easy, I have had many sleep deprived nights, lay-ins have become prehistoric, I don’t get a seconds peace to myself anymore even when sitting on the royal throne the door gets opened by one of the boys asking me to make them a drink or trying to make conversation with me about something they did that day in school.
From the moment I wake up to last second I got to sleep my whole time is taken up by my boys or work, I manage to blog from my phone whilst cooking dinner or on the laptop when Cbeebies is being my childminder.
I no longer have the perfect glossy salon styled hairstyle, in fact it’s completely the opposite I can’t remember the last time I visited a salon and even when I do venture out to the hairdressers I have three boys in tow with me tearing down the salon and trying their best to get my attention.
I used to dress smartly, always wearing a nice pair of shoes, now those shoes are safely tucked away at the back of my wardrobe awaiting to see some daylight. I have unread books on my bookshelf where I have bought them in mind of reading them that day, instead time took over and now they are gathering dust.
Time is something that I don’t have much of but what I do have are lots of cuddles on tap, enough kisses to last me a life time, always someone to talk to, lots of company and a future!
Before my boys I didn’t have much to look forward to, now I have the first date, first tooth, first word, the first haircut, first step, the first day at school, outstanding parents evenings, university, weddings and many more, they have given me future, they give me laughs and plenty of love.
My boys do have their moments, they argue and fight like any other children but they are friends straight after, no one is ever left out as they get on so well together, my heart melts when I see them snuggling up on the sofa together, enjoying each others company. My boys are respectful, polite and friendly, they make me feel very proud to be their mum. I am blessed to have them all in my life , I was a nobody before they were born and now I am a mum!
