The ups and downs of living with a teen

Blogtober17 – Day 12 – Love

Day 12 of blogtober17 is all about love. Love is such a powerful word which can send you in a panic or makes you feel on top of the world.

Today I am going to talk about various feelings of love that I feel in my daily life.

The man in my life

My husband is my true love, we have been together for 18 years and married for 15, I have been in what I thought was love before and was in a previous marriage for 8 years (together 11 years).  But now know that was not the case.  It is true when they say that you will know when you have met the 1.  I am so lucky in our marriage to have the best husband and father to our children, that a woman could ever dream of.  He knows me so well, even better than myself, he puts us first before himself.  I am happier when we are together than when we are apart, and even now 18 years on I do still get those butterfly feelings when I think of him.  Yes we have our arguments and have been through some rough patches, but those just make us stronger each time.

My children

I inherited the boys when my husband and I got together (that is a joke we have together), the eldest (on the left) was 4 and the youngest on the right was 1, when we got together.  We have had some very stressful times with them, but not once have either of them ever uttered those words that many stepparents get ‘you are not my Mum’.  I have a great relationship with both the boys and love them both to bits, they are also great big brothers to their little sister.  C is mine and my husband’s daughter and even though I used to hear people say you have never felt a love like it, when you first hold your child, I really could not believe that rush of love, I really have not felt anything like it before and nearly 14 years later am still overwhelmed at my love for her.  Now the kids are older, the boys both say I am a great Mum and that they are lucky to have me in their lives.  I am lucky to have three such amazing kids.

Our new granddaughter, this is not a recent scan, she is not due until beginning of December, but Mum might be induced end of November.  We did have a panic at the weekend when we thought this little madam wanted to meet us all early, but luckily she is behaving now.  She is not even hear yet but we are all in love with her, and I know that when I hold her for the first time I am going to have that same unconditional feeling of love for her.  Parents aside she is going to have grandparents on both sides that are going to dote on her.
