How is this possible?
  • The baby is sleeping.
  • The 3 year old has been looking at books or playing quietly by himself for an HOUR AND A HALF. He has checked in with me a couple of times to say, "I love you".
  • I have been casually doing my own thing, with a child awake, for an HOUR AND A HALF.
  • This is almost-complete freedom of mind and movement, with a child awake.
  • This has never happened before.
  • The sun is shining, the day is warm.
  • It is a beautiful, sweet-smelling day.

And...the kicker:

  • I feel guilty about it.
