The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

Something I have come to realize about our house.

I don't mind that it is so small. Sure there are times that it drives me batty and when I wished that we had more room or even a yard, but the kids don't seem to mind. Honestly, most nights I find the three older ones in the same room and sometimes same bed sleeping. I remember my Mom used to say the "Love grows best in little houses" and I couldn't agree more. Back in 1994 a country singer named Doug Stone had a hit called Little Houses and no truer song was wrote about this subject. Link to the Lyrics ~Click here to see the full lyrics for the song.

Here is the chorus
But you know, love grows best in little houses, 
With fewer walls to separate,
Where you eat and sleep so close together.
You can't help but communicate, 
Oh, and if we had more room between us, think of all we'd miss.
Love grows best, in houses just like this.




Sure, some days I feel like The Little Old Woman who lived in a Shoe, but I wouldn't trade it, that is not today. LOL

Nic and I have just had a discussion about this in the past few weeks! He used to drive me nuts talking about moving to a bigger house, but we love where we're at now. Im not so sure that it's actually enjoying having a small house so much as we are grateful and thankful for what we have. Life's too short to wish for something else. <3

We've lived in many small houses, apartments, base housing, townhomes, rentals and a cottage too. ;) It was always 'cozy' and fine but with the boys being 12 and 14 they definitely need their own rooms now.
