Small Pleasures

I find myself a little lost these days. It's hard to concentrate on anything for very long. I can't make decisions. I don't know if I'm hungry or not, thirsty or not.


I do find that I take pleasure in little things. A walk around the block with Princess the First. A cup of tea with steam rising in front of my nose. My Mom's pleasant chatter about people I know or don't know while she prepares lunch, washes dishes, folds my laundry, takes care of her baby. My little one makes smiley faces when she's full and falling asleep. I think she might have a dimple. A couple of rounds on a plain sock that may or may not be finished by Christmas.


I know I'll have to re-enter the world soon but for now, I feel safe in my little cocoon surrounded by the little things that make me happy.

Aw, Jo. What a lovely post. I hope you guys continue to do well and that you manage to squeeze in as much sleep as possible before the Dude goes back to work.

What a contented little baby. Enjoy those small things for as long as you can.

Take the time for yourself whenever you can. The simple things in life are the most enjoyable. Kiss your girls. Hug your mom. And snuggle with your guy whenever you can. Those things are precious, and worth staying cocooned for.
