I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep
(Song for a Fifth Child)

10 Minutes of Peace, Quiet, and Hot Water

OK, in full disclosure, it's really only hot water that I'm enjoying, seeing as I don't remember the last time I showered without company. Luckily June Bug is excellent about quietly sitting on my bed and reading while Lady Bug  occupies herself with the 1.2 million toys I dragged into the bathroom. She's quite adept when it comes to entertaining herself. Perhaps a little too much so.

Yesterday, she found a new toy, much to my sudden, cold surprise.

It clearly  provided endless, giggle-inducing fun.
I'm not entirely convinced she wasn't laughing at me shrieking and scrambling to escape what felt like ice pellets.

This kid is trouble.
