My husband usually has the lap-top packed away or at work with him, so I am taking a little bit of time to sit here at the table to type, look, and read away. I know some people can find lots of things to do online, but after I check my email and maybe my husband’s FB to see if there are any new pictures of my little ones, all I have are a few blogs to click on and then I sit there, thinking, “Well, is this it?” And then I usually close the lid and go on my merry way. But today I will write a little ditty.
Both of my girls are supposed to be in their beds, napping away. The windows are open, the lights are off (which they stay off during the summer days, thankfully!), and I can hear the dryer whooshing another load (Wednesday is laundry day- oh… laundry day). But when all things have a silent moment, I think I hear my littlest one humming her “ABC’s”. She must be entertaining her big sister. But they are mostly quiet, and a quiet bit of giggling while in their respected beds is okay by me. It is just another sweet sound for today.
I will have to ask my mother how she got me and my sister to quiet down and sleep, since we shared a bed when we were young (though much older than my girls are).
