This is Cedar's tribe. Cedar has not only changed my life and that of my husband, but just look at all the people in his immediate family that are now serious about advocating for individuals with special needs. I wondered, in the beginning, why God would decide that with already having 5 children I should also be the mama to a child with special needs. I now know that there could be no better way than to affect the hearts of all these people at one time. As the youngest of 6, he has a small army of people going into the world ahead of him to help pave the way and advocate for this guy.

There are many strong & amazing women in my life. One of them is my Grandma, Margaret DeSalvo, who celebrated her 90th birthday with our beautifully huge family! 65 Strong including Grandpa & Uncle Jim in Heaven (I’m sure they were up there celebrating with us 🙌🏻😇 🎉).

Community. It is what we create when we open up to possibilities. .
.
I love pulling into a park, finding new friends and being close to old friends. There are so many families full timing. So many more than I thought! Families of 3 to families of 11! What an amazing community we have walked into.

This month has been a whirlwind. Each weekend I looked ahead and thought “please let this week be less crazy, less busy, less traumatic, just less. Let me just breathe, just manage, just keep going and be still at the same time.” But every week I was slammed with new issues new appointments new hiccups and new opportunities to trust, to practice contentment and faith. {Deep cleansing sigh.} Ok God. I’m reading you loud and clear. I have ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE what this week will bring. My calendar doesn’t really tell me, not my to-do list or even my goal sheet. It’s time to trust my unknown future to a known God. #trustandbelieve

Depuis quelque temps je trouve ma job de maman plus « rock and roll » ... Je suis passée en peu de temps de 🖤3 bébés et 2 enfants🖤 à - 🖤1 bébé, 2 enfants, 1 pré-ado et une ado🖤. Ok, le total reste 5, mais la dynamique familiale est toute chamboulée... et maman est essoufflée 🙄 .
Genre de période où la phrase: « une chance qu’ils sont beaux! » revient un peu trop souvent! 😂😂. #cestvraiquilssontbeaux #unechancequilssontbeaux #momoffive #grossefamille #momlife #twins #bigfamily #bigfamilylife #treetoddler #needenergy #needtosleep #onlachepas #cavapasser

Everyone always asks me where I learnt to cook . . .
.
I am the youngest of 5 kids and my mum was a nurse and was pretty much always working . So we had to all do jobs from a very young age !
.
Am at mums today and went through the old photo albums and found this ! It was our Job rota !
.
I hated cleaning BUT loved cooking and my sisters Hated cooking but didn’t mind the other jobs so we would swap ! My big brother made this and it was on our kitchen wall when I was aged 6
..
So this is where my love if cooking started ! Learning from my mum too as when she wasn’t busy being a nurse she would be in the kitchen cooking for us all !
.
Kids were in shock when I showed them this. I mean they make beds and lay the table but dot. Have one if these. .
