Quiet Time

If you know my husband at all, you'll know that he is always moving, always going, always doing something, and usually has his iPod on. He is always reading or listening to something and has to know what's going on.

I think that The Boy has been amazingly therapeutic for him. Just now, The Boy woke up from having been asleep for an hour or so and just needed a quick snuggle. Musical Daddy picked him up and sat with him on the rocking chair in his room. For about 15 minutes. Throughout the house I heard only the ceiling fan and the soft whrrring of this old laptop.

Musical Daddy has also been a fan of naps for his entire life, which is the only time that he does stop, but never before has he enjoyed napping so much as when he naps with The Boy. He is the greatest little snuggle man.

Hey - I resemble those remarks. There ain't NOTHING better in life, then being woken up by a baby rolling over and grabbing your arm to sleep with. It's SO cute!!!1!

And, to be fair, I did have my iPod with me in The Boy's room, and I was playing "Song Summoner." So, I wasn't as unplugged as I could be.
