This week’s topic: 10 Things I Love That Cost Nothing
My spin: The Early Parenting Years

1. Getting a phone call from my mom at 6:20 in the morning asking if I’m aware that the toddler has my iPad and is Skyping her. (I wasn’t…)

2. Catching the baby’s hand before he gets the dog’s drooly tennis ball in his mouth.

3. The sweet smell of the air in the room I’m in when the toddler insists that “Daddy change me!”

4. Collapsing in bed at 7:31 PM.

5. Sleeping past 6:01 AM.

6. Numbers 4 & 5 on consecutive days.

7. That the 3 teenage boys living next door are all finally in college so we have a few quiet nights in my house between their vacations.

8. The enchanting glow of the 400 LEDs in my bedroom (clock, cable box, other clock, stereo, phone, humidifier, etc.) that, sometimes, keeps my from tripping over the dog and baby toys when I get up to pee in the middle of the night.

  1. Those are some pretty awesome smiles! Great list!

    • The teenagers aren’t so bad – it’s their music choices that i find appalling. if you’re going to play loud music, at least play GOOD loud music. not that it would be relevant if they didn’t blast it into our windows… 🙂
