It's rare that I sacrifice sleep to wake up before the boys. But, today I woke up at 5:45, and instead of rolling over and going back to sleep, I decided to get up.
Sometimes it's worth it, you know?
A long, leisurely shower, putting on my make-up in peace & quiet, sitting by myself in the dark listening to the birds outside. This is the only time of day I can witness stillness, near-silence in this city.
That little voice inside me keeps nagging me to do something productive with these rare quiet moments - like squeeze in a workout, do those dishes from dinner last night, start cleaning for our playdate this afternoon.
Do. Do. Do. Do. Go. Go. Go. Go.
No, thank you.
I'm just fine sitting here in stillness, thankyouverymuch. I deserve this.
