The kids were especially cute today, which made me feel really sentimental, so I wrote this short poem on my Dayre. I’m pretty sure they’re going to drive me nuts tomorrow, but for now, I’m going to go to bed thinking I have really adorable kids. Heh.
Being a mum of three isn’t easy, and I’m very thankful that I have help, because as much as I love my kids, I will go bonkers trying to do everything on my own. The “Mummy Mummy Mummy” is pretty much endless, and the mum guilt is oh-so-real, especially when I have to pick one out of the three kids to spend time with, but I also know that this is what I was meant to do, and that my place is right here, at home, with my babies.
Today I looked at my baby girl while I was nursing her And marvelled at how big she has grown I thought about how she was such a tiny baby at birth And remembered how I struggled to breastfeed two babies at the same time
Today I cuddled my baby boy many times And treasured how it felt to have his little hands around mine I thought about how he was such a tiny baby at birth And remembered how I could fit both his feet in one of my hands
Today I had a chat with my eldest And chuckled when he said he wanted to marry me I thought about how I wondered if I would ever have a baby of my own And remembered how thankful I was when he was born
Today I watched my three kids play And revelled in their endless musical laughter My heart swelled with love and joy And I gave thanks to Him, who blessed us with three
