A fantastic idea for a Friday by Mummy from the Heart http://mdplife.blogspot.com
1. I finally have the family I longed for, wished for, prayed for, dreamt about and sat in the toilet cubicle at work crying about, convinced that it would never happen. It was a long hard slog for us, not nearly as difficult or heartbreaking as for some, but my own personal Everest that I would not wish for anyone to go through but am so thankful to have climbed and planted my flag in the peak not just once but twice (will we go for 3? - the jury is out on that one).
2. It is Friday. This means that I can count on Husband all weekend to help me throw the nappies out of the cat flap and wrestle arms and legs into various clothing (at 8 months Beautiful Boy is already so strong he would give Big Daddy a run for his money) plus we will be packing up, getting ready to move to what we call our 'grown up' house.
3. My Gorgeous Girl (3 1/2) reached a few milestones this week, she got herself a cup of water from the kitchen sink; I was all 'yay', 'well done you big girl', 'whoop whoop' but was groaning inside 'aaargh there goes me being able to leave the drying up/knives/scissors on the drainer'. Then she got asked on her first tea date yesterday by a friend from her nursery, a boy no less! That's my girl.
