My children are quite simply, my everything. I love them more than I could ever put into words. For a long time I didn’t think I could have children, I still can’t quite believe I have three!
Three children under 5 is not easy, the mess and demands are constant. Someone is always hungry or thirsty or needs their bum wiping. There is always cleaning, washing or cooking to do, and I feel old before my time. My body knows it made and breastfed 3 children in 4 years and mentally I am exhausted, BUT our house is full of love, fun, giggles and cuddles. I wouldn’t change a thing.
My children can simultaneously make me want to scream and laugh out loud. I want to spend every second with them, yet sometimes long for some quiet time.
I would do anything to protect them and will always fight their corner.
My children are my world.

This is really lovely Emma, and exactly how I feel too. xx
Lovely post Emma… Emma 🙂 xx
Aww, thanks Emma xx
Short and sweet, sums it up perfectly!
I sometimes think that for those of us who had difficulty falling pregnant it’s a bit easier because we can remember how lucky we are when we are shattered ;o)
Wow, 3 under 5 definitely makes you brave! I’ve got a 4yr gap between my 2, but must admit to being a bit broody – however the old body is not keen at 42!
I’d never thought of it that way, but I think you are right. Those days seem so long ago now. 3 under 5’s is definitely challenging xx
Yep, that really sums it up – great post 🙂
I hear you with that simultaneous screaming and laughing. That’s everyday here!!
Thanks for writing this as part of the #dosomethingyummy campaign
