Rhythm does come, though sometimes slowly. With Marcus back at work for a week now, we’ve been finding ours. Most mornings are slow (breakfast, a TV show or two, and time in their playroom), then we head out for some activity or another, and head home for an afternoon rest in front of a movie together. I may nap on the couch while the girls watch, or I can get some work done during this time (be it writing or knitting). Then we have playtime until Marcus gets home–lately, it’s been lots of writing and coloring.
I like this simple rhythm we’re falling into.
