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.


  1. A poignant post.
    Having a child with an illness i'm often worrying about the future (even though i try very hard not to) i sometimes wish i could just press pause and enjoy some moments in life for longer.
    Making memories with my children is the best part of life for me, as i'm sure it is for so many Mother's.
    A lovely post :-)

  2. I posted it just after reading the sad news on MN.
    I know exactly what you mean about the pause button, scary how time flies.

  3. I spend yesterday hugging and kissing my lot. They weren't so impressed but after reading such sad news I couldn't get it out of my mind
