The world is such a diverse place. I know from experience that having a large family can bring unwanted comments and questions from people who might have contradicting views and opinions about larger families. If only I had a quid for every time I have heard someone say something about having a tv in the bedroom. I would be rich! Then there is “You’re not having any more are you?” Actually whether I do or not is my business and I actually like having a big family. I guess people that choose not to have any children or can’t for whatever reason also get unwanted comments and opinions too.
My point is that you should do what makes you happy in life. Children don’t fix bad situations and I don’t agree with bringing a child into the world if you can’t look after it. After all they don’t ask to be born. I don’t want to cause arguements as it is a subject we could discuss for ages and still have people that don’t agree. Things happen in life and we deal with them the best way we think at the time.
My journey has led me to where I am and I trust my journey is the one I am meant to have. Everything happens for a reason. Even the rubbish stuff. I love my children unconditionally and will always be there for them. No matter what.
I want to break down the stigma and get to know other big families who blog. So I am going to introduce a new blog series called Large Family Love. We will be linking up with other blogs every week to find out more about them. How they stay organised, what they love and hate about having a big family. And of course anything else they have to say about having a large family. If you are interested in joining in please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the chaos of our blended family. My Partner and I have 5 children between us and we have lots of different hobbies and interests. Our biggest love is being creative. We have a big variety of health conditions which we will talk about to help raise awareness and hopefully help others in similar situations. These range from cognitive and mental health conditions to stoma bags and bowel disease. I promise I won’t overshare anything that might offend. But I think it is important to make others feel like they are not alone. I have had some pretty rare things happen to me over the years. I could never find anyone with similar experiences. So I am looking forward to sharing some of those experiences with you all.
We are working on a new illustration for our header image so I can’t wait to get that on the blog to show you.
We are huge fans of Lego and probably have way too much of it but we will also be sharing our creations with you. It’s a toy that has been with me since my childhood. I still enjoy sitting on the floor and sorting through to build something new with the kids. It has entertained us on many rainy days and we never get bored of it. I think I am a little more obsessed over the Starwars Lego than anyone else as they are the only ones that I want to keep built. I would never glue them together though. Thats just too extreme!
