The impossible.

After I married my husband I remember seeing a new baby with it mum. It had blond hair and blue eyes. I thought I will never have a baby like that. Which I have to state I was totally fine with. My husband is black and I am white. He is from Africa and I am from Europe. Our kids are American with parts for other places. However when my girl was born I had to smile as on the side of head is a patch of fair skin with blond hair. I have no idea if she will keep her blond hair but God gave me a baby with blond hair. So I need to remember that all things are possible through him. And he loves me and wants the best for me and my family.

My kid's world

The recent events in Boston with the bombs have brought back the memories of my home town when it was bombed. It was done the day before (british) Mother's Day. Two young boys lost their lives. The city near me was also ripped apart by a bomb. I was lucky I was not in town when it happened but as a young person it still brought home the cruelty of this world.

As a parent you want to protect your kids from the evil in this world but often you cannot. But I hope as a parent I can show my kids the good in this world. The people who run to help, the people who turn evil into good. I also want to show them God's love and purpose for them. And when things go wrong a soft place to fall.

Turning Five

My little boy really isn't so little anymore. He turn give and yesterday he had is party. He charged around with his friends, jumping in his moonbounce. My little girl is doing a spare leg crawl. 5 years has gone so fast. Emotions have ripped through my body in ways I never knew I could feel. With all the sleepless nights, overwhelming fears and responsibility beyond anything I have ever known I would not swap it for anything.
