#sol16 March 5 A slice of sleep

Slice of LIfe  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! 

 

We were going to watch a movie,
"after the kids fall asleep"
You know how that goes, 
well, all the reasons it doesn't.
A 6 year old's shower isn't "quick"
The Weird School book is pretty funny
The tween finishes just "one more" Fixer Upper on Netflix
But mostly, 3 kids want to snuggle

I know, I know
there will always be movies to watch
but there won't always be
sweet babies to snuggle

I drifted to sleep 
during the third snuggle
Keeping her company
the room, dark
the music, soft

  1. I can’t believe how often I fall asleep in a kid’s bedroom, stagger out hours later, realize I’m too groggy to do anything fun OR productive, and just go to bed. Yes, I know how that goes!

  2. Yes, there will always be movies to watch – seeing as mine have long flown the coop and I’ve got tons of evenings to watch movies you should definitely savor the snuggles.

  3. Absolutely – snuggling always wins! Watching movies in their entirety and drinking a hot cup of coffee without microwaving it two times are things that I’ll appreciate when the kiddos are bigger.
