My kids are both off school for March Break this week, and though we haven’t planned a whole lot of things to do specifically, just not having to rush around in the morning has got to be one of the sweetest parts, for me.
These days, by the time I wake up and head to the kitchen, I tend to see this:
Two small people, leaning on each other, already deeply involved in some kind of movie. They hardly notice me at all. It’s lovely.
It’s nice to have some time to lounge in the mornings. And even nicer to see these two knuckleheads hanging out together this way. Normally, by 7:45 AM, the big one is saying goodbye to the small one, who only just arose from bed ten minutes prior… but not these days.
These days we stay in our pajamas longer. We have crepes for breakfast. With bacon. And hot chocolate. With marshmallows, even!
We don’t know what we’re going to do later, but the days begin with ease. And with treats. And with cuddles.
I love these days.
