These kids drive me to wine~even though they aren’t here! They’ve been gone for less than 2hours and I miss them already.
Its too quiet and I have no arguments to referee.

This co~parenting business doesn’t get any easier, saying goodbye to them with a smile on my face, then having a few quiet tears when I shut the door.
Don’t get me wrong I am grateful that they have both parents who love and care for them so much,and step parents who play a huge part in their life’s too.

I am grateful that between us~that’s a whole lot of love to go around.
Sometimes though knowing they are off to make memories without me,sharing times I will never know about,it does pull on my heart strings. It just goes to show you never really know where this path of life will take you.

All you can do is keep moving forwards,keep smiling and keep loving. Life is too short for anything less.❤x

Crazy little Easter Holidays

41DDEF44-9B80-42B9-88E6-C5468502F47BThis last two weeks I have had lots of small people at home, eaten far too much chocolate (me not them!) done less housework than really was necessary and most definitely not had enough sleep!

I won’t lie sometimes the holidays aren’t always easy, life doesn’t stop just because school has-jobs still need to be done, bills still need to be paid, things can and do go wrong (don’t get me started on our very poorly car!) and life’s ups and downs certainly don’t take a few weeks off to give you a break.

I guess that’s the beauty of this crazy life it’s all about balance-the good with the bad,the rough with the smooth. In my eyes as long as the love and laughter outweigh the tears then I’m winning.❤️x
