This photo was taken just a moment ago. The Little Girls sitting on the couch paying games while The Goo antagonizes and Pug looks for a cuddle. After putting all Littles to bed, Tim and I are sitting in the living room having a bit of silence. I can hear Littles chattering sweetly down the hall as they work out their last bit of energy. The dishwasher is humming, the washing machine spinning. It is a different type of silence for this house, but it feels quiet to me. Oh...Goo has just come out of bed scared of a "big guy". Tim is walking him down the hall to put him back to bed. Likely a child will end up in bed with us tonight. This nightly occurrence is lovely and dear. I can't think of another place I'd rather be.
