It takes so much of yourself, your marriage, your soul to raise a child, let alone five! After having kids of my own I respect my Mother and other Mothers with children in so many ways. Its down right hard. Of course its always wroth it but in those moments of late nights, whining, fighting & the non-stop asking is hard. What I have learned, capture it anyways. Look back, remember this time of life. Remember your achievements. Remember your family.
I had a great day at the beach with this family and those little red shoes! So cute!
