More often than not, being a parent involves noise. Talking noise, cooing noise, crying noise, screaming noise, laughing noise, singing noise, and shouting noise. When you add a second kid, it means suddenly you are listening to surround sound. And while sleeping? Well, then it's white noise. The noise is constant.
So the release I feel during the quiet moments is all the more sweet. I like the noise, I really do. But the quiet moments are savored given their rarity.

I cannot tell a lie: my energy for this project is flagging. I have yet to post a few missing weeks and this project is definitely not at the top of my to do list. I'm still working out how I want to put it all together and what I want it to look like, both on the blog and on paper. It frustrates me that I don't have my act fully together (see recent posts!) But I'm going to keep plodding forward, doing what I can, and I know I won't regret it.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I have some delivery pizza a-headed my way and some Grey's Anatomy to be watched. WOOHOO!
PS - Thank you to all the MN blogger people who joined Erin & I at Minnehaha Park today! It was really cool to see you all in person. It was also awesome that EVERYONE was late (including Erin & I) and that naptime pretty much shut that party down cold. Ha. Good times :)
