The house is quiet. This is such a rarity that it feels odd, I don't like the thought of one day the house always being quiet. I moan a lot about housework but I just know when I don't have to prepare a meal for 8 every night or wipe a sticky surface down for the third time that day, I will miss it. I can't imagine my life without a small person needing me and I don't want my house to only have grown up stuff in it.
No cbeebies, No peepo, No giggling coming from upstairs when they should have been asleep an hour ago.
Hold your children close tonight and enjoy the memories you make together.
