When I found out I was pregnant with little Sophie, her first name was Lucky #7 . You see, Sophie is a rainbow baby and is technically my 9th child. I've had two miscarriages before her. My first angel baby before my rainbow baby boy Liam in 2009 and my second in 2016. I had bought this "Kiss Me I'm Irish" jumper for baby before Sophie and honestly thought I was done before her but I kept it in remembrance. Oh and the book you see here with her was my first child's book from 1996. I obviously have a hard time letting go of stuff. Many people wonder why I have "so many children". You know, the typical comments for anyone who has more than two children these days. I've finally been able to not care what people think about me anymore. It's my life and I'm honestly so happy and could never imagine my world without my kids. I am who I am mostly because of them. All children are a blessing and I am the luckiest mom in the world to be the one that my kids call mom. I started a little early with having my oldest at 17 and struggled a lot raising my three oldest as single mom, but I wouldn't change anything because it has made me a stronger mom/woman and hey, I get to spend more time in my life with my children. Of course things haven't always been sunshine and flowers, but it's the challenges in life that makes us stronger and closer to that next step. I battled with some depression and anxiety after my last miscarriage, which still lingers here and there, but every day I thank God for everything I have including my health and the air we breath. If you're ever feeling low, take time for yourself and find your happy place. If you can't love and nurture yourself, then you can't spread happiness. My motto is "everything happens for a reason". I didn't intend to be so deep and ramble with this post, but it's what came to my heart as I typed. With that said, happy Monday and top of the morning to ya!
