I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
It’s loud in here. I should wait to slice, but I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep and miss my chance.
Kids are wandering over to try to sit on my lap where my laptop is. L and Mr. Thought are laughing and playing hangman. My son is fake-reading my words and tickling me. I don’t need to tell you how messy my house is. People are climbing over and and leaning in. They are underfoot.
Not exactly a writer’s retreat. I can’t get a thought to finish in my head.
I try to think, I hear instead.
“What’s the one that’s famous for it’s spelling? The state?” (H asks me as he lounges on the back of the couch.
“No! I don’t want you to fight me!” (Pretend dinosaurs talking with E)
I think H might be falling asleep as he curls around the couch – marker on his hands, glasses still on. Teeth not yet brushed.
The dinosaurs aren’t fighting anymore, but the hangman game is in full swing.
“It’s not fair! I want to guess! It’s not fair! I want to guess! It’s not fair! I want to guess!” E yells.
It’s bedtime, and I’m hoping for quiet dreams after just a little bit of time to think.

Thank you for bringing me back to the days of my little ones. I can so picture this action filled scene. Good for you for posting! It’s quiet at my house now… too quiet sometimes. Enjoy it all!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I know that one day, my house will be too quiet…. weird to think about that for sure! 🙂
Loudness so fun and so unencumbered–you seem to enjoy the moment and embrace the distractions. I love your line, “I can’t get a thought to finish in my head.” That is a line I can relate to.
I try to enjoy — honestly that’s sometimes hard! … I often can’t get a thought to finish in my head! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. 🙂
Your description brought back memories of when my children were younger.
The years really are short – I know! Thanks for stopping by my blog. 🙂
This is great! Love the line “not exactly a writer’s retreat.” Made me chuckle because this is exactly what my writing sessions look like! Chaos! I wouldn’t have it any other way, of course.
Chaos… I never thought I’d be in such chaos! But maybe a writer’s retreat would be too quiet… 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Dana!
Sounds like a house full of little ones and love!
Yes! Lots of love… and lots of loud. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
