When the house gets really quiet, chances are Arlo is on the dining room table, eating markers, or playing in the toilet (yes, all of those happened yesterday). Lately I have been painfully aware of how fast my boys are growing. It is easy to feel like I am about to loose my mind over the endless piles of laundry (our bedroom is now refered to as laundry mountain), the dirty floors, the toys randomly scattered throughout our entire house. But then I breathe and I embrace our crazy house because I feel like I am going to blink and these boys will be going off to college. One day I will have forgotton about the sleepless nights, the consant mess and I will be longing for those days that I would find Arlo sitting on the dining room table.
