The house has been quiet today and for once the quiet does not mean that some massive mischief is taking place.
I canned 17 jars of salsa today.
I also painted our back french doors.
I hardly had to spend any time cleaning up toys at all.
No one got pee where it doesn’t belong.
There was no yelling at dinner.
My house has a shocking lack of mud in it.
We went out for ice cream at 8:00 pm.
Bedtime was a calm affair.
Have I finally achieved some sort of stay-at-home mothering nirvana? Nah, my parents just came and took away Older and Middle for a week and Gran and Papa’s (my parents) house leaving us with Baby as our only child. It’s hard to believe that I ever thought one child was difficult. This, my friends, is a vacation – parenting style!
