unexpected mothering perks

i usually don't relish getting my kids in trouble, but sometimes those 30 minute time-outs (following an especially naughty afternoon where mom felt a bit too long suffering) buy a session of a quiet read (two day old vancouver sun), a handful of bbq baby back rib chips, and a bunch of novel-budding notes

sometimes it's true
we all like each other a bit more after some time apart.

  1. it is so true. I could have sent my kids for a mini vacation this afternoon. The few minutes they spent outside before the rain started was a welcome reprieve. They came home from VBS very hyper!


love to hear from you :)
