One of my very favorite parent-poems is:
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
For babies grow up
to our sorrow
So quiet down cobwebs
Dust go to sleep
I’m rocking my baby
And babies don’t keep!
And this week, I am fully embracing it! I have a house full of sick babies that just want to watch movies and cuddle on the couch. So the washing up is piling up, the washing baskets are full, the toys and books are scattered and the Disney movies are on repeat. A small part of me is niggling to get to it, but then I look over at my once baby-boy, to a 4-month old that is already seeming way too big for my liking!
And in realizing this, it’s more important than ever just to relax and spend time doing, oh nothing in particular, just so long as it’s with my little cherubs.
