One thing you probably never thought of as a new parent, most likely not until your children were approaching adulthood, is that they will eventually multiply. If you started out with 3 kids, you’re probably going to end up with 6, if you’re lucky. If you’re really lucky, you will like your new children.
Now that you’re thinking about the inevitable, consider this; you may not end up with an equal number of boys and girls. Initially this may come as a shock to you, as it did me, but really it’s not the end of the world so don’t let it be.
All three of my children were “easy”, we are really blessed with each of them. No real drama, no drugs or super bad choices and all high school and college graduates. They are all each others’ best friend and my heart couldn’t be happier! Now that they are grown and we are starting to get our “new” kids, it’s exciting! Whoever they choose to spend their lives with is fine with me. If they are happy, treated with love, kindness and respect then I am happy!
Now, the really fun part… the second multiplication! This time you could end up with any number of “new” children, GRAND children!! So far we have been blessed with only one, a baby girl, but oh my she has her grandma and grandpa wrapped around her little finger!! There is nothing we wouldn’t do for any of our eventual 6 kids and undisclosed number of grand kids. NOTHING.
Family is what matters in this life, treat it with kindness, understanding, respect and MUCH LOVE!!
