Standing at the sink at 9:10 tonight, I was preparing this post in my head. 9:15 and all four children were in their beds, the house quiet after a no-school (due to overnight weather that never materialized) day made special with a dessert of homemade donuts. My Finer Thing for the week would be going to bed early for the first time in nearly 5 months! The peace. The quiet. Almost there… just 3 more dishes…
And then at 9:27 we were summoned to the top bunk by a bloody nose. She had been reading in her sleeping bag. Blood everywhere. Soon after, the baby awoke, and no amount of wishful thinking would coax him to sleep.
It’s 10:00 now. She’s back in her bed, and I’m finally typing… while the baby nurses. Again. No going to bed early. Again.
But sleepy baby snuggles to end my day? Yeah, that’s a Finer Thing, too. 😉
