Me: cramming for Halloween
All lights on long into the dark. So much for bedtimes. Yawns are stifled.
Them: pretending they know what they’re talking about
Us: trying not to show our laughter to them
Me: ushering Littlest Him to lay down, “You can stay and listen, but you must stay tucked up!”
Littlest Him: sneaking away to hide under the table and hoping that I won’t notice his little self.
There will be sleepy heads in this house tomorrow. But tonight makes me smile. Tonight makes me laugh. It’s so very full of home and life and family. Tomorrow will take care of tomorrow.
