#makesmesmilemondays Our Big Family

I always dreamed of having a big family. I'd always wanted to have five kids - or at least three.

My mother came from a big Irish/English Catholic family, and I loved to be at my Grandma's home, who lived nearby and where I spent much time: her home was always filled to the brim with aunts and uncles and cousins - and I wished for the same.

But alas...Life takes us in other directions. God had a better plan for me: I have two fantastic children who I love with all my heart, but there are always one, two or three other children running around our home. Our family is big....bigger than I ever could have imagined.

Yesterday, at breakfast. Wish I could have captured Chiara with her eyes opened!

Our home is filled with love and most of the time it's brimming with people and activity, and that's exactly the way I love it.

  1. I too love my bustling home and crazy kids and their friends! Even our house cleaning service feels like part of the family. And that's a good thing too!!
