So far today I have washed practically all the bedclothes (and am line drying them), cleaned out the fridge, visited Judith, gone to the veg shop, come home and eaten falafel in total silence, had a nap, and am thinking about organizing all the kids clothes and toys.
The silence is amazing. The girls only babble when they're awake, and I hadn't realized how much of my energy is spent answering questions and breaking up fights. This is amazing. I feel so much better.
Oops, baby awake! Time for the next phase of the day!
