When you’re used to a house full of chaos, the quiet nights are the ones that stand out. My life has been, well, less than normal lately and it feels like there’s been a lot of white noise. But, I’m trying not to be so negative.
Quick little moment of appreciation.
Tonight it’s just me and my youngest three. In my eyes sometimes, they’re still little, little kids. I can envision them at 3, 4, 6 with all the cuteness that came with those ages. Now of course they’re 14, 12 and 11 and cute in vastly different ways. Also, exasperating. But…tonight I came home from work and they had kept the house clean (including the kitchen-gasp) and it was so, so, peaceful.
We made dinner together in the kitchen while chatting. We made cupcakes because we felt like it and now we’re just hanging out together quietly. No one is fighting, no one is yelling.
I just had to share how much I treasure them.
Have a good night, all.
