So I have deleted this post more than once already and I’m still not sure of what I want to say! Hello, would be a good place to start, so….. Hi!*wave*
I’m Katie and if you hadn’t sort of guessed from the name of the blog am a stay at home Mami of five. Yes, I know our family is a bit bigger than the norm but it was our decision to have this many and it has been a manic, fun filled twelve years since we had our first, and second. Thats right, we had twins first and still decided to have more!
So a little about us. We are a bilingual family, myself and the kids all speak Welsh and English. Hubby only speaks English, but understands more Welsh than he realises most days. Having read a few blogs, I think I would be classed as ever so slightly crunchy. I wear my babies, use cloth nappies, have breastfed all my children and would prefer to eat real food than processed. However, in reality I will admit that I used a double buggy when e&ff were babies, a combination of sling/double/single buggy/buggy board when the three girls were little, only managed to breastfeed the twins until they were 12days old, only used cloth on the two youngest and processed food is my failing most days when the time goes by so fast – but it is something I am working on.
Hubby is an HGV mechanic and totally into his gaming, he even has a YouTube channel where he uploads videos, mostly of minecraft.
We have E&Ff first, they are 12 and every bit tween girls as they could possibly get, from complete silliness one moment to full on teenage strops the next. I’m sure one teenage girl is bad, but two? Give me tantruming toddlers anyday!
Next we have LM our ten year old, she is about as daft as they come, the phrase sillier than a box of frogs comes to mind. I have been instructed by her to tell you that she is actually a sophisticated, smart and intelligent young lady 😉
LV, our first son, is seven, named after his dadi and determined to be just as tall one day although he would rather be an evil scientist when he’s older.
Finally we come to our last little bundle of joy, O is now four months old and full of very cheeky grins. He is the object of the three girls obsessions and loves getting passed from one pair of open arms to another.
So that is us in a nutshell. What about you? What is your family like? I would love to hear off you. If you have any questions or if there is a subject you would like me to post about let me know.
