To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Surprise!

We had gotten the little ones off to bed...spent a little time with the older girls before putting them to bed and the house was quiet...don't you just love that quiet...that end of the day, my work is done, everyone is tucked in safe and sound kind of quiet?

Claire barked out this nasting sounding cough and I waited a second to see if she was going to settle back on her own. When she gave a half hearted cry I decided to check on her. Creaked the door open as quietly as possible...made my way to her bed in the dark...reached in to pat her little hiney so she'd go back to sleep...and low and behold I touched naked little booty instead of a diaper!

Somehow in her squirmy settling in the velcro on her diaper hooked to her nightgown and she managed to pull it off in her sleep...thankfully the only thing I touched was a sweet, clean and dry little booty...can you imagine the shock otherwise?!
