life with older kids: happy chaos

Yesterday was busy – teaching Relax & Breathe at the hospital in Gateshead in the morning-back to Gateshead with my daughter and her friend in the afternoon for a shopping trip at the MetroCentre-dropping off and picking up my teenager daughter who sent the afternoon with her boyfriend (yes you read that right)-cooking a late dinner and then all sitting down together amongst  chatter, sibling fights, grumpy/tired husbandness and I felt deliriously happy (and sober). 

Life with older kids is a bit hectic and hormonal but I am learning to embrace it – I like the chaos and the noise and the chatter.
