Baby Emma is nearly 5 weeks old and I am pleased to say she has slotted in rather nicely. I was dubious how my youngest would cope with a baby in the house, but she came home armed with an Octonauts toy for him and he announced quite proudly ‘She can stay’. Ever since he has been a real sweetie with her and says in a soppy voice ‘Ahhhh baby Emma’.
My older children are equally as chuffed with the new addition, and Brooke is rather happy she is no longer the only girl. They are my little helpers and my 10 year old spends ages with her
I won’t lie, having four children to look after is hard work. But it has been a gradual process, ranging from age 10 to newborn there is plenty of age gap in there. I do have to be more organised than I was before, I have to make sure Emma’s feed are at a time so I can get the kids to school and playschool. I am finding I have even less time for myself, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Cliché I know, but it’s so true.
