Sweet Bear as the photographer and the subject.
All is quiet in the apartment. Shhhhhhhhhhhh. I can even hear Boy Blue breathing softly in his sleep.
Mama is a happy girl.
The babies are all sleeping after a morning of going from screaming to singing to crying to laughing to climbing to falling to Mama kisses to Mama is mean to eating to drinking to spilling to BED!
Mama had enough. The babies have finally went to bed and Mama is praying that it lasts for at least two hours. Geez…after this morning the little stinkers should sleep soundly for the rest of the afternoon. I know that will not happen. I give my peace and quiet one hour tops. I never have peace and quiet for long. I am never really alone in the apartment or anywhere for that matter.
In fact, I can’t even take a bath or go to the restroom in peace. If I even think about shutting the door without Petite Clown, she will stand and scream banging the door until I open it. Nice…the entire apartment building knows when I am doing my business.
The restroom is just by the entry door to the apartment. So, I am sure the neighbors across the hall and any going up or down the stairs hear Petite Clown screaming, “Mama…Mama…let me in!” And, since all the apartments have the same layout, everyone knows that she wants in the restroom and it is me, Mama, that is locking her out!
Like I said, “Nice.”
Before Petite Clown it was Sweet Bear and before Sweet Bear it was Angel Girl and I am sure after Petite Clown it will be Boy Blue standing and crying at the doors that Mama is seaking some thin shread of privacy behind.
In America, I was once in the restroom and my husband and Angel Girl kept coming asking me questions or striking up conversation through the door. I was very annoyed and opened the door to find my husband, my daughter and the CAT waiting right outside.
Mama’s typically get no peace and no quiet and no Mama alone time. However, at this particular moment, all is well in Mama land and I am enjoying every single second that I am not hearing, “Mama…mama….mama???”
