My niece is asleep on the couch and I will soon follow. I'm struck by how happy and busy it is with them here. Every time I clean something up, two more things fall on the floor or spill. Every time I answer a question, three more are asked. I'm so enjoying talking and playing with my girls. I didn't know I was craving this kind of quality and quantity of time with them. We've had a great couple of days. I find myself smiling even just hearing her in the other room at her quiet play.

Stretch is spending the nights with Maw Maw and Paw Paw. She's been kind, helpful and respectful the entire time. I'm sure she likes staying over there because she has more freedom and can sleep in.

I'll miss them when it's time for them to go home.


  1. Wow, sounds like a lovely time. It reminds me of what I imagine life to be like once we're mommies.

  2. Such precious time for you...& great practise for when you're a mom!

  3. And aren't they even more precious when you see there sweet sleeping faces. (not b/c they are asleep, but b/c they look so peaceful!)
    Glad you are enjoying your time with them and getting a glimpse into your future life :)
