Good Morning

Slice of Life: Day 26

This morning no alarm was set.  I did not have to slip out of the bedroom trying not to wake the baby and my husband or have my son wake to the sound of our door opening and the gate shutting as I started my morning.  Today I didn’t have to rush before the kids needed to be up.  Today I woke to the sound of Luke calling my name.  I walked to his room and sat on his bed as he put his head in my lap to cuddle with me.  We talked about how he slept and what his day would bring.  It was so nice not to be rushed.  We picked out his favorite superhero shirt for the day and grey comfy pants.  Today would be a comfy day.  We went back into my room to where it was still dark and quiet.  To a room that was not rushed and not ready to start the day.  Olivia was smiling, cooing and squirming ready to start her day.  Again, not rushed, not having to be woken up, just ready to start her day on her own.  I scooped her up, pulled her close and we got back in to bed.  The three of us cozied up together.  Not quite ready to start our day and not needing to.  I in the middle, Olivia in my arms, Luke pulled close with my arm around him.  There is no better start to the day when we are not rushed and have no where to be right now.  It was a good morning!

  1. Aren’t days like this the best? Nothing like kicking back and taking it easy and enjoying life to its fullest. Hoping that your whole week will feel like this morning! Enjoy 🙂


  2. I remember those days, where there was no school, no expectation of being somewhere at sometime. Those were usually pancake/waffle days too. I miss those days! 🙂

    Thank you for your calm slice!


  3. Yesssss, I love these mornings. As working moms, I feel like we are so grateful for them. I’m glad you took the time to soak it in and to capture it in your beautiful writing as well. I hope every morning this Spring Break is so calm.


  4. Sounds like you are enjoying the break! No morning rush is such a treat. Only 40+ more school days and you get a whole summer of that!
