With such a big family, you can imagine that it’s hard to find alone time with any one member of the family. My mom and I have always been extremely close, but having a conversation during the day is almost impossible. Between cries of “Mommy!” and “Hey that was my toy!” and “She pushed me!” there are interruptions every five seconds.
Sometimes, especially with new foster kids in the house, it can feel like you never get a minute alone with your parents. But when you compare the need for alone time with the need for love and caring that those children have, you know that it’s worth it to save up your stories for the end of the night. I’d much rather spend time with all of the kids during the day, because I wouldn’t have half of the stories I do without them.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
