I am discovering it is quite hard to always refer to the kids as "biggest", "youngest", "loudest" etc. So I am going to explain who they are and call them by their initials from now on K is the eldest and my firstborn son R is my biggest girl and a natural born mother (no idea where she get's that from?!) C youngest boy and as soon as he was born I knew he was going to be hard work! Cheeky, clever, charming and so affectionate... little monster. and last but as the old saying goes, by no means least M youngest baby girl, a beautiful precocious child, who I'm sure will give me no end of trouble, but for now she's at the stage where she can do no wrong.
A mum of indeterminate age, four kids, no cats, one dog and one gecko. Not quite decided what to be when I'm a grown up, but plenty of time for all that! Like meeting people (figuratively) and making new friends (literally) and generally just unloading any gripes and groans as well as sharing things that make me smile.
