My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Guess who has been here

This morning I desperately needed a shower.  I decided to pay Jonah- in the form of a Hershey’s Kiss- to babysit Simon just long enough for me to get clean.  (Shaving will have to wait for a more experienced sitter.)

When I got out of the shower, this is what I saw:


That is Jonah’s signature crooked-blanket-bed-making job.  The binky and hot pad left behind are sure signs that Simon was an accomplice.
