I’m celebrating all the mothering wins in this pic: sitting down with a book while both children are down for their naps *at the same time*, in a tidy house, with a hot cup of tea and my favourite chocolate (that I don’t have to share with tiny people) AND enough time to dick around with some flowers in a jar to make this pretty. WIN!
Further context for consideration, my eldest decided that the day should start at 1:30am (spoiler alert: he’s wrong) and my littlest is in the middle of some crazy growth spurt that means he is permanently on my boob.
So, I’m savouring the silence while I can. Because this too shall pass.
