stay…

2 Feb

week (1) week (2) week

so we had this great week.

we all stayed home. t from work and e from school. it’s been really cold, so we never went anywhere before noon (these photos from a trip to the zoo), and no one yelled. no one yelled – all week. the first couple of days i didn’t notice, but by the end of the week it was feeling…remarkable. we would sit in the living room and read books, the kids played together, the afternoons were quiet, we were patient with e. what’s happening? i kept wondering…it’s the kind of family week that’s so good you don’t want to ruin it by talking about it, and maybe that’s why i wasn’t here much…

sort of makes me reconsider some things. why i get stressed and angry with my family, where our time is actually spent, what our priorities are…what makes kids behave differently in different circumstances. lots of things to think about.

what a great staycation. i needed that.
