One, Two, Three

I traveled back in time today. For the past few hours I've been a mama of two. Just me and my three year old girl and one and a half year old boy. One, two, three.

I spent a good chunk of the morning under the dining table vroom-vrooming little toy cars across the floor.

I made lunch, far too much lunch actually. I'm used to a larger crowd. We feasted on bread and cheese and tomatoes. Leftovers are in the fridge.

We closed the curtains and sprawled out on the little girl's bedroom floor to devour our pile of library books about babies and princesses and barns.

I nursed the sleepy boy to sleep and the little girl and I decided to make blanket forts on the deck. We pretended to doze in the shade until the dog came to lick us one too many times. Inside we came and turned on some old cartoons that I remember from when I was her age.

She's watching them now as I sit here and type this. The big, hungry, noisy boys will be home any minute. I miss them. But I'll miss this too.
