Little pieces of my heart

"Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body" Elizabeth Stone

Yes. This. Exactly this. I have chosen to allow 3 little pieces of my heart to walk around outside my body, which is totally amazing but quite frankly sometimes it's scary. 

I know this will have been written many times before; but I never knew it was possible to love someone (3 someone's) so much. It's heartburstingly overwhelming how much I love our little ladies. 

They are so intricately part of me. When they fall and hurt themselves my heart skips a beat, when they are sad my heart aches for them, when they are disappointed my heart fills with disappointment too. When they are happy my heart beams. When they laugh my whole heart fills with the sound of it.

As they walk around outside my body with their brave, innocent little hearts and explore the world my heart is in my mouth, yet bursts with pride and excitement at the same time. 

I like to think that if they are pieces of my heart then our hearts all beat together in unison wherever we are in one rhythmic motion. When we are all together I feel totally and utterly complete and I hope they do too.
