Our first night back all under one roof was not near as restful as we had hoped. (well for 3/4 of us anyway- Connor slept like a rock)
Penny has a fever and just generally doesn’t feel well, which translated to her not sleeping well.
I coveted the cuddles on her bedroom floor at 1am though. Smelling her sweet curls as she rubbed her tiny little hands on my fuzzy robe. Very thankful that I am her mama..
I came downstairs around 6:30am to a quiet house and took out the trash, made coffee, started laundry and opened the blinds to a dark street.
Just a few minutes later, Connor padded downstairs and asked for cereal. As he settled down to watch Paw Patrol this early morning, we both looked outside and admired this scene.
He said “Look, Mommy! The Northern Lights!”
