I love this time of the morning - everything is quiet around here, Caleb and Mickael are off at school and work, and it's just me and the boys. I've got a cup of tea next to the computer (must. have. caffeine.) and I can sit here and watch the birds make pigs of themselves at the birdfeeder, watch fluffy clouds roll by and just take a minute to myself before the day really gets going. Soon I'll be getting laundry together, cleaning up the house (how is it possible that Finn still has hair on his body?), and getting myself cleaned up and pulled together so I can get errands run and everything taken care of, then I'll be off - here, there, and back and forth. I won't have another bit of quiet time until after dinner, right before bed - if I'm lucky, but right now, this is my time to breathe.
