I had the blissful experience today of the day to myself, at home, just me and Chamberlain, knitting, nursing, reading, writing...I have a wonderful friend (a kindred spirit! Truly!) who took the three "big kids" (isn't it crazy how quickly they become big when there's a newborn in the house?) for the day and I was left here on the couch just wondering what to do - like I'd won the lotto and had no idea what to spend it on first.
I did NO HOUSECLEANING. The broom is still in the hallway where I left it this morning, with the dustpan and pile of dirt on the floor next to it. So there.
I guess I did do a couple of dishes...if you count the bowl and spoon I took out of the dishwasher for my lunch (which was soup).
And the bowl and spoon I took out of it for dinner. Which was, um, ice cream. Moose tracks, to be specific. YEAH, BABY!
I finished a book.
I took pics of Chamberlain in some new hats I made.
I sang louder than the ipod.
There were no timeouts, temper tantrums, spilled messes...and when they got home, we hugged and talked and had bedtime. A beautiful thing!
