My kids are upstairs playing by themselves. Together, but by themselves. I don't know what they are doing- if I go look it will all be over. I wish I could record the belly laughs that are coming down the stairs, though. I just wiped down the kitchen and swept the floors, folded a load of laundry and started dinner. I even had a brief telephone call. All without anyone attached to my leg or asking for anything. I think they are building.

My daughter is speaking so sweetly to Isaac. (Lillian is going to be 5 on SUNDAY! and Isaac is 20 months- FYI) She is using her sweet mommy voice that is usually reserved for the babies at church. Isaac is loving the attention and giggling away.

I feel torn, though. I want to go up there and join in the fun, but I know if I do I will also be ruining a bit of their fun. They need to be able to play together and if I go up there, the game will have to change. Also, I am enjoying this bit of apartness before my husband comes home. Oh, and the sound of their little voices are just so, so sweet.

Okay, times up! Chris just pulled into the driveway and so I give them 30 seconds after he walks through the door to come downstairs. I'll keep you posted!

Aww. That's very sweet.
I become very nervous if my boys play quietly together where I can't see them. It usually means something is being destroyed. ;)

sounds sweet! sorry it didnt quite last as long as you might have hoped!

Enjoy those precious moments while you have them...but beware, lol. I heard giggles like that coming from my living room when my oldest was little and I used to babysit his slightly older cousin everyday. Turns out they were spraying 3 bottles of Molly McButter ALL OVER MY SOFAS.

Whadda mess!

But there are few sounds better in this life than children's belly laughs.

Oh, I love when kids laugh! And how great that you could do some things on your own. Sounds like everyone had some good moments today. :)

Liked this post. I do that at times. Just love hearing my two children play. I don't want to interupt either...

Have a blessed week!

You have just given me hope! Maybe it won't be for another 2 years, but it is hope nonetheless! This is actually one of the reasons I wanted to have another child, built in playmates are the best!

And, you've given me hope that although they will be nearly 3 years apart, they can still play together. That must be fantastic!!
