Make That Thirty-Five

Have you ever noticed how my blog posts tend to be a little on the short side? That's because I'm really not that much of a talker. My boys, on the other hand, oh my word do they like the sound of their own voices! And I don't know if it's because of hormones or the full moon or bad parenting but those voices sure are grating on my nerves this week. I'm looking forward to today, when both boys will be spending the day and night with their grandparents. And I can enjoy some much needed solitude.

  2. I can relate to the talking with ya! Em talks non stop, we can't watch anything without having to pause it a thousand times to tell her to be quiet. Enjoy you day and night to yourself.

  4. Poetry Fridays? Beautiful. Believe it or not, I'm a big talker. But when I'm on the phone, I clam right up. I don't do the phone thing. I hope you do somethin very nonproductive with your solitude.

  5. I love the poem. And I wish I could dance in my kitchen. Guess I will have to wait until my little one goes down. Oh I forgot I will be writing blog posts. I need to get a life. LOL

  10. I think all of us moms are in need of some solitude time- which the dads don't understand. Whenever my husband hears of some mom who got away by herself for a weekend, he's all: "YOU wouldn't want to do that, right?" And I'm all "where's my ticket."

  15. Sometimes I like the sound of my own voice but it doesn't always translate to my hands and onto my blog. Sad really considering I can talk for hours about next to nothing but get blocked up easily when I sit down at my computer.

  16. Oh my word, I know the feeling. Just today, while I was trying to cook dinner and sort through a million things I had going on in my mind, I told my monkey to go in the sunroom (his play area), sit down, be quiet, and play for atleast 10 minutes all by himself. He kept looking in at me to see if I looked like I had given up on the solitude time!

    Oh, and thanks so much for helping out with the donation to Heifer International! I appreciate it.
