To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
My name is Rebecca. I’m an Australian stay at home mum to four kids- Nicholai is my thirteen year old Aspie genius extroardinnaire, Emmanuella is my twelve year old creative empath, Jericho is my nine year old bundle of imagination and complexity, and Soren is my seven year old force of love and chaos. Sometimes it seems like they are all growing up way too fast.
They make me laugh, and they make me cry. Sometimes I could scream with frustration, and other times they light me up with happiness and pride. I love them beyond words and reason…they are beautiful and they are mine.
I am married to Troy, who is my husband, the father of my babies and my very best friend.
I write a lot in my journal, and write often. It’s mainly about my kids and my daily life. I write about trying to be the best mother I can be. I write about trying to raise children who will grow up to be kind and compassionate and thinking adults. My son has Aspergers, and I write a lot about the impact this has on our family life. I write about my craft projects and my plans. I suffer from bipolar type 2, depression and anxiety and I will write about my struggles with that from time to time. I write about how tedious and frustrating raising children can be, and I write about the funny and beautiful things they do that make me laugh. And okay, sometimes I just bitch.
I love my babies, and my family is the most important thing in my life.
