Makes my Monday . . . . Peace and Quiet
Any mom will tell you that peace and quiet is a rare thing when children are involved . . . from birth until about the age of 30 :o)
Even if they are temporarily napping, you never really a minute of pure quiet.
I nanny for a Precious Punkin (she is also two) and between her and my little man, there is typically non stop noise from the second we wake up until we go to bed. Precious Punkin naps early 12-3 and he naps 2-4 . . . if I play my cards right I get a solid HOUR of quiet time. Sure it's packed with dishes, laundry, cleaning up the mess they made during the morning, but I have the t.v. off , all the noisy toys are put away, and if I am feeling extra awesome, I'll put on my favorite Pandora station so that music I enjoy is playing softly in the background. Makes doing all of the hustle and bustle of "homemaker" more manageable.
Today, I got lucky. . . Little man woke up super early so he went down at 12:30 . . . Precious Punkin didn't wake up until 3:30 . . . .. giving me 3 HOURS of quiet !!! yes.... 3 hours!!!
I feel like a new woman.... can't remember the last time I had 3 hours completely to myself???? well sure I do . . . it was right before little man was born :o)
Not only did everything get done in the normal hour it takes me but then I still had two more hours . . . I returned emails, caught up with an old friend, even blogged which is normally reserved for late night hours !!!
So today. . . . peace and quiet makes my monday.... well that and a smokin hot cup of home brewed starbucks :o)
