Slice of Life Stories hosted by the
During my almost-two-year-old-twin daughters nap,
I could have . . .
opened up my school bag,
reviewed the state testing manual,
or started reading The Reading Teacher that arrived today.
I should have . . .
started a load (of many loads) of laundry,
cleaned a bathroom or two,
or unloaded the dishwasher only to have to fill it back up again.
I would have . . .
skimmed, scanned and read the slices from day three,
checked Twitter, email, and my Google Reader,
or finished reading the book Wonder.
But instead, I . . .
chatted with my mom on the phone about the week,
snuggled under an afghan with the cat curled on my lap,
and closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep for a much needed nap . . .
. . . only to be awoken an hour and a half later by talking and giggling on the monitor.
