Our Family

I love my family.

I like to think I have a few types of family that are all equally important to me. There is the family I was born into, the family I made with SAH and Little A (bub), the family I married into and the family SAH and I chose.

Part of our chosen family are two special people who made a family of their own this year with the addition of their little girl B.

Tanya and Anthony have been close friends of ours for years. They were bridesmaid of awesome and best man (respectively) at our wedding; we’ve been on holidays together; shared love and support over many a flat white; helped each other move; feverishly scoured markets together (and been exceedingly jealous of one another’s scores at times); shared pasty glue together (well Tan and I have, back when she was a burlesque star and I was a ring-in) and just plain ol’ shared our lives with each other. Boy this is soppy!

Now we both have little families it makes my heart swell even more as I watch them come together and know that our kids will grow up together.

We may not see each other every day, but Little A will know that Tan and Ant and B are part of his tribe. And I like that.

  • We have some friends like that, that feel closer than family some days. It makes my heart swell no end to see the 7 year old playing together and remembering how we used to joke about them being belly buddies.

  • I got a bit emo reading this. It’s just all about the tribe, isn’t it? Knowing who’s with you. x

  • Lovely. So nice that you have friends so close they are family.
