Ah, the silence. My mom took Jacob and Clara to her house about 30 minutes ago and Isaiah is sleeping. It is a bit weird that the two older kids aren't here. They've gone to her house overnight before, but usually it's when we've had somewhere to go. We've never actually just been home and they're not. It'll be good for them, probably more so for them than for us. They get so wound up by evening just because they're in the house with me all day, I think. So it'll be a break for my patience (which is thin by evenings). The silence is nice, but I'll be missing them and ready for them to come home by tomorrow or even when we call them tonight to say goodnight.
Again today I tried to nap while all 3 were sleeping and couldn't. I think I've figured out why. I've been sleeping at night, every night since a week before Isaiah was born. I'm so used to sleeping during the day 3 days a week and shifting back and forth from being awake at night to sleeping at night that I"m usally in a state of sleep-deprivation. I think I'm actually getting better sleep now than before there was a newborn in the house, just because I'm sleeping at the same time everyday. It's kinda strange.
