|This is one of my favorite photos of Laura and me from finals week during freshman year.|
She's the best, and so is this little poem that helps bring me peace with each piece of clothing. I hope it does the same for you (insert your little ones' names for Ryan and Conor, of course):
For easiness and peace, peaceful easiness at least,
For easy peaceful easing peace...
Sing your songs as the day is long, sing your songs the while,
Sing your songs to clear the fog and poof! the laundry pile :)
Hum a bit as Ryan sits and Conor naps and lays,
Hum a bit and tap around and shoe () the stress away.
Make the kitchen a room to dance, a space to let life flow,
And flow along from room to room and peacefulness you'll know.
When time is short and ughhhhs are long just start to sing once more
Sing again make dance your friend and easy peace bring in the door!
