Raising Those Rascals!




As 2016 progressed, I found myself neglecting my regular posts about Raising Those Rascals. I think this was mainly due to a lack of time with being pregnant, moving house and life just being a bit all over the place in general. But this year, I really want to bring back blogging about the rascals and sharing with you the everyday joys and challenges of raising my three boys.

With hindsight, I see how important it is to share our moments of parenting honestly because it's in these 'trenches' where life is challenging us and we find ourselves living far from a comfort zone, that light shines into the cracks. Imperfection is where humanity is found and none more so clearly than in the thick of family life! 

This is my first Raising Those Rascals post as a mother of three and all of a sudden I really see myself in that category of plurals! My 'rascals' are all about me, needing me, loving me, exhausting me and stretching me. There are days where I find myself on the brink of losing the plot altogether, but those days are definitely outweighed by the elation and joy that being a parent brings to my life.

 When I stop and think about my journey into motherhood, I can honestly say that with three little ones now, I have never had more of a sense of being exactly where I am meant to be. Having a newborn in the home has been so wonderful these past couple of months and I find myself enjoying being a parent so much more as the dynamic of our family has grown and shifted to welcome little Joshua.

It's an amazing, privileged position to be able to witness firsthand the growth of love within our family unit. I think that alone is a huge strength for me, keeping me afloat when the nights are long, the sleep non-existant and the tantrums rolling in thick and fast!

Even though I admit I have been utterly useless on the blog front, I am SO happy to be back and ready to share some of my favourite posts from the hashtag over on Instagram with you! Thank you again for supporting and sharing the wonders of parenthood!
