After a holiday whirlwind, it always feels good to sit down, breathe, and enjoy a bit of nothing. Clean up the house, put things away that were brought out only for the kids, take inventory of the refrigerator, wake up with no particular agenda.
The one thing I haven't put away yet is the doll house. I just haven't been able to bring myself to disrupt the cozy conversation of "brother and sister" having their snack of hot chocolate and banana cake.
See, they had been fussing and arguing for several days and finally went out to the terrace for a snack and some talking. I think I'll give them a few more days and then tell them it's time to come in.
