A quiet morning.The boys are at school. It's just me and the dog, who's sleeping at my feet. Sweet, quiet, relief.
A morning with no arguments, no constant asking for food, no whining, no shouty voices. No nagging needed, ("If I've told you once, I've told you a hundred times: CLOSE THAT DOOR BEHIND YOU,").
Just a quiet, meandering morning to myself. The sweet relief of solitude. And then I look at the time and realise my respite has finished for the day. Time to pick up the little one from school, and go back to my job as Mum. A more refreshed, slightly less frazzled mum.
Thank god for school!
