The quiet minutes

Had a hard day today. It was just a mash of bad karma. So it helps to reflect on the parts that were great, because there are always those parts too.

My girls are all in a princess phase, and occasionally run around the yard and call to each other "Sister Princess! Sister Princess!" It reminds me of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, which has always been one of my favorite fairy tales...

For about twenty minutes before naptime, I lay with the girls on their beds and we all read to ourselves. It's quiet, restful, and I love how the girls 'read' with focus. I keep a steady stream of books catered to their interests from the library...I look forward to those quiet minutes.
