At Night and Full Life.

The house is finally quiet, minus my fingers hitting the keys of the computer and J going thru his mail. This is our time and I long for it all each and every night. To just be.

The afternoons from 2:30 pm to bedtime can be crazy and busy and oh, sometimes too full. Pick ups and drop offs and homework and dinner prep and tears. By the time we've finished dinner and I've rinsed the last dish I am ready.

"Choose your books," I tell my littles and they argue they're not tired. They claim to never be tired but I know better. Tonight after a read through Dora and another through Batman their eyes were closed, their minds in dream land before I even say, Amen.

E, reminds me of being little. I had all these animals in my bed when we lived on Huron Street. I wanted my mom and dad to tuck in all my animals and me. And I'm sure it drove them a little crazy because they probably wanted their own time too. I get it now. But I look at her asleep with each of her random animals all tucked in asleep and I remember.

The bigs came home today and H & E were excited. We waited at the bus stop for M this afternoon.

"You're home, you're home," E shouted and jumped about when M climbed in the van.

The reunion between our bigs and our littles is always something to be seen. They all adapt so well, moving from one house to the other, the littles accepting, here this week, gone next. Sometimes I think maybe it's a harder transition on me than them.

Life is full right now. In good ways, yes. But full nonetheless.

I reported at my very first caucus last night and was very intrigued by the process. I was tweeting {and later found out the tweets were aggregated to Cover It Live nationwide for Patch} and trying to keep up with it all but really enjoyed the experience.

I also wrote about Kids and Chiropractic care this week and you can read that one here. {I found this topic and issue super interesting.}

I've said before that when it rains, it pours in opportunity and right now is just one of those seasons. I'm excited to be working with some folks with Disney and we'll be taking our kids to see a prescreening of the newest Disney movie The Secret World of Arrietty that opens everywhere February 17. {Think: The Borrowers}

And next week, oh next week, I'm flying to Cincinnatti on Tuesday night and spending Wednesday with Proctor & Gamble.  Wednesday morning, myself and some other media/blogger folks will be having breakfast with Robert McDonald, the P&G CEO and then spending the afternoon at a first-time ever look at their Innovations Center. Will surely be an interesting event and whirlwind trip full of information.

Of course, sandwiching the trip will be H's Valentine Party on Tuesday and his 100 Day of Kindergarten Party on Thursday. Those are the real opportunities right there.
