On Birds and Mothering.


Tonight I put the children to bed really early, so early that I shouldn’t even say how early.  And, the best part is, they actually fell asleep.  Andy is out of town and to be completely honest, I am exhausted.   Not the ‘at the end of my rope’ kind of exhausted.. but the ‘should I go to bed at 6:30 too?’ kind of exhausted.  I opted to go for a little evening walk instead of pulling up the covers, and I am so glad that I did.  I was able to sit without interruption for quite some time while somebody else zoomed around me.   I can really relate to that busy bird.

I came inside and looked at what was in the netflix envelope.  Aptly, it was the movie I Don’t Know How She Does It.  I had to laugh.  I’m not saying I am some kind of super hero, not in the least.  I have it very good.  These are busy times and I am ever grateful for every moment.  Especially these last three hours of slow mama time.  I know my little ones will be early birds tomorrow, given their early bedtime.  I think I will turn in now so I can wake with them and run them down to see the new baby birds.
