At first I couldn't believe it was happening. I couldn't believe the house was quiet (except for a few giggles) and the girls were sitting on the floor "reading" to themselves and each other. I had to pinch myself and then grab my camera to prove 1) I wasn't dreaming and 2) this really did happen.
Then again, this does happen. In between the tears because you cut up the sandwich of the kid who doesn't want their sandwich cut up and the chasing each other naked through the house before baths and the fighting over who gets to sit in the green chair, the days are just as full of sweet moments as moments that make you want to rip out your hair. You just have to look.
