Being a 41 year old Mum is perfect and special for me

Wow is that how old I am?!?! Sometimes I forget! I still feel 25 some days and then 85 the next πŸ˜‰ I always wanted to have my first child when I was 25 years old…I wanted to be a young Mum. But life didn’t turn out for me that way and I went through a phase of not wanting kids at all. Maybe that was just because I hadn’t found the right man yet. So I guess he came along and now I have two kids and couldn’t be happier. That said, life these days is a lot harder than what it was when I was young, single and free. Little did I know how easy it was back then. If only!! Now my biggest wish for myself is a little time where I can do nothing or have a moment to myself and not rush to go to the loo or something simple like that πŸ˜‰ Tidying up the house at night is something I want and have to do because it makes the day so much easier in the morning to start from a clean slate…but sometimes by the time I’m done it’s already after 9 pm and when I sit down to relax or play on my computer or do something I need to get done, I’m pretty pooped and it’s not long before I’m off to bed. I try to fall asleep but end up playing a game on my phone or some other time waster…if I’m lucky I’ll read a few pages of a book and try to stay awake to comprehend it enough to remember it the next day πŸ˜‰ ha ha!!! I got five hours of straight sleep the other night for the first time in nearly a year and I was so so happy!!! To sleep through the night again…I can hardly wait for that! I know it will come around soon and then I know the kids will grow quickly and I’ll be thinking about when they were younger and needed me more. I know already now I’ll miss them when they’re older. But one great thing about having kids older is that you get to live a pretty cool life before they come along and hopefully do a lot of things you want to do…and then when they do come along, they keep you young. One because you have to be physically fit to keep up with them and two, simply because they are young you get to behave young and have fun around them; it’s part of the job to be silly πŸ™‚

Here’s a few recent snaps of us just doing our thing and hanging out. Love my family, love my life, even with all the stress and hard work, I wouldn’t change a thing πŸ™‚
