Sometimes, you just need a moment to listen to a favorite podcast, eat a favorite snack, drink a favorite drink, and get a chance to do something that YOU think is productive. Right now, I'm readying the "guest room" for Josiah. We had always planned on moving him in with Elias, but E has been having some sleep issues, and it's (past) time for us all to have our separate rooms. (By the way, for those of you that have known how badly the sleep situation had gotten around here, Josiah is officially "sleep-trained". It took one night. ONE! I still can't believe it. What a champ.)
I hope you get a chance to get a moment to yourself today, friends. Lying prone on the couch out of exhaustion doesn't count. Need a suggestion for a snack? Try a banana smeared with salted, crunchy peanut butter. Need a drink suggestion? Try this. Need a podcast? Try today's Fresh Air. No need to suggest something that you'd find productive-- if you're anything like me, you have a mental list of things you would do if only you had the time.
