5 minute friday: Quiet

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:


    Quiet time is a work in progress in our house with the no longer napping preschooler in part to allow the still napping toddler to sleep, and in part to allow everyone a chance to take a deep breath and reset, and in those few minutes I find the space and respite I need to again be ready to listen to the story, watch the dance routine, answer the many 'why' questions that the late afternoon and evening will bring until tucked-in into their beds the quiet will return ~ except for the whispered conversation sharing our day between the parents as we too find the stillness amidst the craziness to rest.

  1. Love this so true!! it is hard to catch your breath with kids!! I love that you shared that even if it just a few minutes it can be enough:)

  2. I've so been there. Take whatever 'quiet' moments you can! :)

  3. Beautiful!! And I can absolutely relate! Although my toddler has recently gone on nap strikes! My preschooler is pretty good at quiet time, but it's kind of a moot point when the toddler won't nap! :)
