Hey! So Glad You're Here.
Hi there and welcome to my rant and raves. I'm Heather, mother of four, step mom of three, grandmother of twin & mother-in-law of one. I have been with my husband going on 8 years now but we only just tied the knot this last summer.
We live in a small town of about 3000 people, well just outside of town about 10 miles or so. Living about 1/2 a mile from a game park I so peacefully get to fall asleep each night to the roars of Lions, and tigers, & bears. Oh my that was left out in the brochure when we bought the place.
My oldest Kirsten is 21 she and her husband John have twin 3 year old boys. So i am Memaw "Not grandma" to the destructive duo Keegan & Kaiden. There is this saying Double the giggle, double the grins, double the love when your blessed with twins. Um no, it's more like
Double the mess, you’ll never be free, with double the poop, twice as much pee.
I have a 17 year old son, and my two youngest daughters 14 & 9. My husband has 3 boys from his previous marriage. One live with us the other two with their mom.
With all of the kids in and out of the house we did somehow also manage to retain custody of the in-laws. My father-in-law is 92 and has hopped a ride on the crazy train these last few years. The same locomotive my mother-in-law has been driving for quite some time now. There is definitely never a dull moment with those two.
As for me I work in natural health care. Float therapy as well as natural esthetics. A large part of what I do involves the importance of mental health. Sometimes you have to look at the big picture and laugh at all the crazy that surrounds you. In my family there is no concern for shortage of that. When I get to the end of my rope and think this is some crazy whacked out stuff, I take a breath, look at the situation from another point of view and just laugh out loud. Sometimes you just gotta let go and set your crazy free!
