Profound thought of the day: "Peace and quiet" is a rare commodity for a mom.
Moms, I know you KNOW what I'm talking about!! My days are filled—from the crack of dawn until bedtime—with squeals of delight, crying, almost incessant chattering, car/vacuum/blender sound effects, whining, etc.
However, right at this moment I am sitting in utter silence... Ryan is napping while Brandon and Daddy are out on a bike ride... no cars are driving by... no dogs barking... no airplanes flying overhead... and I can feel the tension in my back easing away... ahhhhhh... there's just the sound of the birds chirping... heavenly. :)
