When Gemma leaves for school, I feel a little outnumbered at times.But while they may be noisy and demanding and not always the best at remembering what sleep is, they sure are a sweet bunch. Growing up with all sisters, I secretly kind of wanted an all-girl family, and my first son threw me for a complete loop as I felt totally out of my element having to raise a little person into an honourable man. But it turns out boys aren’t all rough and tough and noise and injuries. The love and care they have for each other (and for me) is amazing, and the joy the older ones get from making their baby brother smile is impossible to resist.
Those squishable faces.
Please stay so joyful, open and carefree forever and always.
So so cute! These posts always do make me smile! Hope you are having a great weekend!!
Thought I should stop being a blog stalker and comment for once :-) and this is the most appropriate post for me to comment on! I too have been surprised by all the boys that have arrived in my life. Having grown up with Barbies and My little ponies I’m not so certain about all the monster trucks and Thomas and his friends. Brotherly love is pretty neat to see though.
YES, you would definitely get where I’m coming from – it’s a whole new world :) It was great to connect with you guys this weekend!
