5MinFri - Quiet

Five minute Friday is a blog carnival where a beautiful crowd spends five minutes all writing on the same topic and then sharing ‘em over at Gypsy Mama's blog.  Want to know how Five Minute Friday got started and how to participate? All the details are here.

Sometimes even 5 min worth of quiet time seems like a precious gem in my house. I have a beautiful 2 year old son who simply has more energy than I know what to do with sometimes. If you peeked into my house on any given day, you'd see for yourself that he plays "drums" on everything, he yells for seemingly no reason, he sings, and that one of his recent "favorite" toys is a keyboard that plays a few different children's songs. It drives me nuts but I love the joy he gets from it. Which is really my point in all of this. I genuinely love being this little boy's mom. I love the fact that I've traded the ability to sit and read a book for hours straight for a symphony if noise. I love the creativity that he is exhibiting by grabbing two spoons and banging on every surface in the house. He's my son and while I've always wanted to have children and all that comes with parenting, I've quickly learned from the newborn crying to the screaming toddler that "more quiet time" just isn't I'm the cards for me right now, and honestly, I'm ok with that!


Until next time,
