Williams Family Part Three: More Kids Than Parts

At the end of the last part, Lisa had just given birth to baby #3, Elizabeth, and Rebecca had become a child. 

Joseph was rather stinky, so I was only too happy to give him a bath. He was such a sweet little kid.

I like to try and feed my family a healthy diet, and I also like to make use of leftovers. With this in mind, Rebecca ate some leftover grilled fruit for breakfast before school.

Both Michael and I had been homeschooled as children. I had been prepared to homeschool too, but then Michael had told me about what happened to his older sister. She had been a happy homeschool mother, before her husband died of liver cancer. She had found it incredibly difficult to both homeschool and be the sole breadwinner, and she'd been hampered by the fact that her education hadn't been great. Michael had therefore decided that we should send our children to public school.

"But what about the other kids?" I'd said.

"Well, we can use it as an opportunity to try and encourage others to adopt our lifestyle. Rebecca will still dress modestly, of course. Passing out tracts is all very well, but I think it'd be good if others could see how we live our lives in a more direct way."

I wasn't sure that I was entirely convinced, but I nodded anyway. I was also unsure about the stuff Rebecca would be taught, until Michael pointed out that there were plenty of politicians who believed similarly to us, and who hadn't been homeschooled. He also argued that Rebecca, and later her siblings, would be better placed to argue against stuff like evolution if she understood the pro-evolution argument. So, with all that having been said, Rebecca happily went off to her first day of school.

Music has always been a hobby of mine. My main instrument as a child was the violin, but I also had a hankering to learn the piano. I purchased a small keyboard to start me off.

Time to get going to see if we can conceive #4!

Success!

I wanted to improve my cooking skills, so I found the culinary channel on TV to get some ideas.

Elizabeth grew up!

It was a warm day, so I made some lemon gelato, and served it with orange slices and sprinkles. Ymm!

Rebecca turned out to be similar to me in that she loved playing music. I bought her a special child-sized violin.

Rebecca was now old enough to help out round the house, and immediately took her breakfast plate to the kitchen sink after eating.

There's a small playground near our house, so I took Rebecca there after school. 

"Hey Mum!" she called.

"Hey honey," I replied. "Sorry, I've got to use the toilet!"

Rebecca met a classmate, who she told me was called Taku Akiyama.

"Hello, Taku!" I said. "I'm Rebecca's mum."

"Hello, Mrs Williams," he said politely.

"Elizabeth, sweetie, please don't make a mess on the floor."

"Sowwy, Daddy."

Rebecca was also now old enough to keep a Bible journal.

Everyone in the playroom!

I was happy to find out that baby #4 would be a boy!

I always enjoyed reading stories to the kids when they were in bed.

Happy birthday Joseph! We love you!

That day also happened to be the day that our baby was born! We named him Daniel.

      My boyfriends parents were quite close to his former in-laws. But since divorce is unimagineable in their small, conservative, catholic bubble, they feel like since they already had a daughter-in-law and got along fine with her parents that they don't need to put in the effort to get to know new people.
      That is actually the same way they feel about me. My MIL even told me once: "I already had a daughter-in-law that I was close to and whom I loved, I'm not preparing for another one. Same goes with grandchildren."
       

      Sorry for hijacking this thread with my person bullshit. I feel like FJ is one of the places where I can talk about this in a safe space, without hurting anybodies feelings.

      No do not ever be sorry for sharing! And this is awful! If they are not going to treat the children equally, they should have access to neither!

      @ophelia: take her up on her word and quote her words back to her when she complains. Works like a charm. Just did that with my mom and she became so furious she completely lost the ability to speak. My boyfriend and I laughed ourselves silly.

      @ophelia I‘m so sorry you have to deal with such a difficult MIL. How does she think this is gonna go once your boy is here? One would think she mellows after a grandchild is born.

      Can I say that I absolutely love how you guys handle your blended family? I think it’s so cool that you and your bf’s ex are on such good terms. There’s nothing better than showing the children that divorce doesn’t need to be the end of the world but that you can be cordial with each other. That even adding new spouses/significant others can mean that there’s someone more to love the existing kids instead of being a source of more bickering and problems ❤️❤️❤️

      I really hope she mellows, especially after you give birth. Especially if your boyfriend's ex is also having another child - it would be nice if she could focus on the expanded families and relationships of her current granddaughter, and see it as more love rather than "not right".  

      My boyfriend's ex and I talked about this just the other day and we were quite pessimistic about this.
      She is unable to change and I pity her for that.

      Fun fact: My MIL always describes her relationship to her former DIL as perfect and everything. My boyfriend's ex though warned me about allowing that woman too much space in our lifes since she took part in destroying their relationship.
