My Morning Off

Uploaded: Sep 20, 2014

My husband and I each take one morning a week to ourselves. Sometimes this means sleeping in. Other times it means relaxing by reading a book or watching a movie.

During my "morning off" I've recently enjoyed consciously spending a couple moments of it overhearing my son and husband as they play together in another room. It's amazing to hear their conversations evolve over the weeks, months and years. In the beginning I just heard my husband. Now the conversation is almost equally balanced... an actual chat between father and son!

I know that the dynamics of these "mornings off" will probably change as our family grows. As my husband juggles a newborn and a toddler. As our newborn learns to feed from a bottle. And as our son learns how to be an older sibling.

I'm hoping that we can keep up this weekly tradition. I would love to one day overhear three little voices all equally contributing to one conversation together.
