Just thinking...and sitting...

There are a thousand things I should doing now. I mean, it's nap time! This time only comes once a day! But instead, I just want to sit on the couch and watch Barefoot Contessa (which is a fav Food Network show of mine) and then fall asleep.

I could be unloading, and reloading the dishwasher. I could be cleaning the kitchen. I need to clean off the table. I need to straighten up my desk. I need to clean out the refrigerator and free up some of my long lost tupperware. I could put together the new table we got for B. I need to clean the master bathroom, and the bedroom for that matter. I need to shower. *Deep sigh*

But, here I sit. With a weird pain in my tooth. And a little residual cough and snot. I think of how nice this time is. You know, alone. Quiet. I can't help but be grateful for Benjamin's age and how I can certainly get things done while he's awake (although, it takes a little longer because we play trains a lot). I think of what June and July and forever after is going to look like. These silent nap times won't be so, well, freeing. Not that I mind, mind you. I'm looking forward to the change that Beta will bring.

I think about going grocery shopping with a toddler and an infant. Or how in the world I'm going to get out of the house to go to the YMCA. Or if we will, indeed, leave the house at all. My sanity may never be the same! :)

See, all of this thinking and rambling makes me quite confident that just sitting here during nap time is perfectly fine. And come June, I probably won't regret it in the slightest.

You are so right, you know. Having two is wonderful, but there is certainly less quiet time for Mommy. Enjoy it now with no regrets!
