Secondly, my husband and I had a full house this summer. My mother came to visit us from Jamaica (where I was born and partly raised). She also had with her all my teenage siblings: 17, 16, 14, 13 years old. Our house is usually fairly quiet with just the two of us, unless I'm playing music loudly while cleaning the house of course. Needless to say it has been a noisy and interesting summer but so much fun. I feel like a kid again. They will be leaving soon and I will surely miss them. Since having them for the summer, I have given more thoughts to us having our own children. I am excited to have my own but realized how difficult it is to work and dedicate as much attention as I would like to children--not that it is impossible but it will be challenging. I must certainly say I look forward to and embrace that challenge.
