Sometimes, it just hits me outta nowhere that our family of four GREW! It’s not four anymore, there are six of us now. And it’s at seemingly normal moments that this epiphany occurs.
Tonight, it was dinnertime. Year after year, as I prepped dinner plates, it was simply four plates.
But then tonight, as I made our “big people” plates, it dawned on me with intensity, “Oh my word! There are two more little plates to make, two more little mouths to fill, two more personalities at the table.” My heart was all bursty-like as I prepped their classiest of Paw Patrol plastics😂
Because we were young parents, poor and working through college, we decided it’d be fun to start over in adding some littles during this more secure place in our lives. We wanted to know what it felt like to say, “Tonight, we make a baby!” Previously, our kiddos were wanted surprises!
And now, the thing that led me to my nostalgic momma moment in the first place:
Making dinner for this whole crew, 6 of us to be exact💜💜💜💜💙💙
Thanks for reading, friends💖
