Home Alone-Catching the Moment

Oh man. I am the only one in the house right now. The last time this happened must have been...I don't know. I remember a moment while in labor with Charles, who will be 10 in July, when my midwife told everyone to go on an outing and leave me to labor in peace...

I'm not even sure what to do with myself; I could clean up the school/playroom, or make dinner or finish the Easter egg I've been working on. Never mind, I see one of them coming up the driveway now...he's turning, leaving...gone!

Someday I will miss them all, but just now, I think I will turn on something 19th century-ish on Netflix and work on my egg.


  1. What is the rainbow spiral in the photo made from? Love it, great blog!! Visiting from Caution! Twins at Play

  2. Thank you for stopping by, Kristen! I am glad to have you visit!
    The rainbow spiral is in Vander Veer Park in Davenport, IA. It is the beginning of a giant game of Candyland the park built last year as a treasure hunt to all parts of this beautiful botanical park. Isn't it a great idea?
    PS I always wanted twins. I guess the universe saw me better equipped for one baby at a time, ah well!


Thank you for stopping by. I am always happy to hear from you! Please leave a comment and let me know how you feel about a post or add advice, anecdotes, etc. of your own.
