This was not my world

Nat thinks it's creepy to have only two people on any floor of the house. Not, two people in the whole house, just for there only to be two bodies on a single floor. He says it's too quiet and it's spooky. This is not my world- I am an only child of elderly parents, and I am becoming desensitized to the noise, but to me only one or two people in a room is normal. I keep thinking about all the fundamental ways my children's experience differs from mine, and getting... not nostalgic, exactly, but feeling a little displaced.

Today we have a babysitter coming in the morning, a repair guy (for the upstairs sink) at eleven, and Colleen and Jeff coming over for dinner. Time to put the kettle on and start moving.
