i am blogging this morning while drinking coffee and watching the today show and my house is quiet.
the big kids had a spend the night last night with their grandparents. my husband and i went out to dinner with mr. bear. it was so easy. it was quiet. we got home. i nursed the little guy and out he went. our house was so quiet. no bedtime baths or pajama struggles. no bed time stories, tuck me ins or please snuggle for just a minute mores. it was so quiet.
this morning we woke up and came down stairs and made coffee (okay so that always happens). no brush your teeth, put on your clothes, drink your milk. it was quiet.
right now mr.bear is in the exersaucer and here i am typing a way. no ones asking me to put her cinderella dress on or check out the latest lego ship he built. i had breakfast with this sweet little guy and am enjoying the quiet.
you forget what life with just a baby is like. you don't appreciate the time you get with that little one the first time around because you don't understand that you will never get that opportunity to focus on just one little person ever again. this morning life has slowed down for just a little bit and it's nice, but the noise will be back soon and i will appreciate it a little more after it's been missing. and hopefully this isn't the quiet before the storm.......
