Pick up. Drop off. Dinner. Homework. Bedtime routine. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Leaving parents to crash into the engulfing couch for an hour or two of meaningless tube time.
Over Christmas break, we found ourselves relaxed, hunched over the dining table perplexed with an old past time, a puzzle. Now after seeing each little one nestled in for dreamy visions, we pounce at the chance to twist and turn pieces until alignment is made. Life has slowed and calm hearts are seeping back in. The mister now steals away moments to gaze at the puzzle, hoping for a piece to float into place. I love seeing his contentment and hear the calm in his spirit. #slowinglifedown
