monday nights…

September 29, 2010

I love it on Monday nights…

when we eat by lantern light alone.

when it is a media free night and everyone forgets to whine because they are so engrossed in their art.

when fall is kissing us on the cheek and invites us to open all the windows.

when creating your own comic books are all the rage.

when Cloud Boy gets a whole new book and then instantly becomes a series.

when Fire Boy accidentally becomes friends with his once nemesis Life Boy. 

when there is great discussion about how to turn your very own characters into costumes for Halloween.

when little girls play and start to become real sisters.

when you actually clean the kitchen because there is no cute boy/husband to distract you. You need this time every once in a while.

when everyone is in bed at a reasonable hour and you are alone in the quiet, where the only thing you can hear is the kindness of your house.

when the dog sits on your feet and lays his head against your knees.

when you are so exhausted from taking on too much and vow to never do it again, yet you still feel grateful for all the chaos around you, for it is life…

      that’s hilarious Lance because Mondays are usually AWFUL at my house, everyone is grouchy the weekend is over and no one wants to do any work. 🙂


  2. This sounds a great, inspiring yet calming ritual to do with your kids. When I have children I will try to remember to do something similar. Monday is a good time to do them too…it’s one of the most stressful days for most people.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Steven
