It’s been a funny month, on one hand we have had a lot to celebrate with Father’s Day and MM’s 3rd Birthday all in the same month but also we have had bad news both in the media about leaving the EU and at home. It’s definitely been hard not to let our struggles that are challenging us at the moment plague these great celebrations. I have wrote about when life gets harder how we need to share it. I am not one to sugar coat anything on LTM. I will share the highs of our live as much as the lows because life isn’t always blossoming. It’s the end of June, I have to say I am so glad to see the back of it. Bye, bye June and hello July. Mostly because we are off to the states come the middle of July for the summer and I am desperate to be home this year. (ok, I say that every year).
However, to the kids it’s been a month of amazing celebrations and happy times. That’s one thing I will always protect them from is the heavy weight that life can put on us sometimes. While they are young all they need to experience is happiness, love and life to it’s fullest. We have been busy each weekend with parties, swimming, playdates, friends and family around having dinner and park hops. The kids have had a wonderful month together.
I actually think June has been the best month for my two together. They have been more attentive to each other maybe they six senses that Mommy has been overwhelmed with a few things and so they support each other more than usual. They have had more bonding moments over the last few weeks than I have ever seen them have before. Mr P and I have witnessed them snuggling up and telling each other they love each other and are each other’s best friends, on numerous occasions. On MM’s 3rd Birthday I was afraid B would feel left out as we normally do a double birthday party so there has never been a time she got presents and he didn’t. He really stepped up to the plate, kept singing her praise that it was her day and all about her. He sat back while she opened presents and even offered to help me clean up after our family birthday breakfast. That day will forever be engrained into my memory as they played together so sweetly in the swimming pool and then afterwards at soft play. A few times even protecting each other and standing up for one another against some older kids that were pushing them around. I know they will forever be a team as we are as a family too. We will come out of this tough time stronger and together as we always do.

This month has been tough getting the four of us together for a photo. With stitches in my face which you luckily can’t make out here because it looked like I was growing a goatee, I have been hiding from the camera. You can spot a few places on my instagram where I look like I don’t know how to clean my face properly. Either way, these two captures were taken before a family party we had to attend on Father’s Day. I absolutely love them. Not because they are anything special but because it reminds me of what’s right in front of my face that is so amazing. They remind me the smiles on my kids’ face is more important that the issues going on around us at the moment. They remind me that family is so important, more so in the bad times of life when we come together and support each other. I am so grateful for my beautiful little family each and everyday. They warm my heart knowing I have them in my life. This month, we have come together as the family that wears shades together. Life is never too tough to be silly and laugh with the ones you love the most.
