Today, we were horrible parents. We leaned a little too hard on the television. So much on our to-do list that it became unavoidable and so we let them watch tv...all day. And all the guilt that comes with that, well, it came with it. Full force.
But this house, I am so grateful for. All the nooks and all the crannies, the hideous carpet in the dining room/family room and all. It really has given us space and so many places to just be. So tonight, we are hanging with each other. I sit on the floor, he sits on the disintegrating built-in couch (no money left to fix things) and we let them all just be until they drop from complete exhaustion. Every parent's dream.
