I have longed to join in this family portrait project of Lucy’s over at DearBeautifulBoy but if you knew my family, getting the four of us in the same photo is a nightmare. Forget asking for smiles, as you clearly can see I will not get any. I use bribery, begging, pleading, and half the time it’s only a few seconds before I give up or they do. The kids aren’t always the fussy ones either, Mr P puts up a good fight like the rest of them. lol
This month I was excited that we got the four of us together, as I only have two other family shots since Missy Moo was born. In 9 months that’s not a lot.
I love my family.
I really do.
They make me have a sense of purpose and sense of belonging to something far bigger than my own agendas.
Their love is inspiring and is amazing to feel.
The look my kids give me, and even the look Mr P gives me makes me feel like I could take on the world with their love and support.
I am so very grateful for each one of them.
I am honored to watch them love each other, unconditionally too.
I am blessed to be their mother, his wife, the lady of this household.
We grow together as a family, a unit, a team.
I could not ask for more.
May my family be corporative and patient for me each month so I may join this beautiful project and document our lives together, month by month throughout the year. Fingers crossed for April everyone!
