Quiet house

Yesterday Patrick took the kiddos to Mammaw and Pappaw's house for a slumber party so we could try and find the baby stuff in the closet.

It was soooo strange. I stayed late at work--instead of leaving at 4:30 and hauling a bunch of stuff home, I stayed until seven and had everything done when I left. It felt like our pre-kid days! It was also sooo quiet--no "mom, mom, mom", no two children talking at once, no noisy toys. Just us and the cat.

It felt like a foreshadowing of empty nest days. There are definitely things to look forward to--and definitely things to treasure right now. I was glad to see them, though I relished my nap beforehand!
