In a word – boring!
I have had so much fun today watching the kids play in every possible combination. Issac playing with his cars, various combinations of kids playing a game where some or all of them are kittens. I could sit in a chair “reading” with hardly a second passing between watching one child or another run past in that exuberant way that only children can.
I’ve lost count of the number of times today that I have turned to Laura and said that I could not tolerate a life that did not include children. It would just be empty.
