When I was a little girl, at the end of each day my Mom would say "It's happy time!!! Time to get ready for bed!"Back then, I did not understand how going to bed could be a happy time... Then I became a parent!
Happy Time is when the house is finally quiet!
Toys and books are put away. Lights are dim.
The only sounds that can be heard are a fan, dishwasher, and washing machine.
No little footsteps running everywhere. Perfect silence! I am free to catch my breath and sit down and relax.
I love my children dearly. But even super mom needs some piece and quiet sometimes!
