Do you know what the sweetest sound in the world is? Well, that's arguable, of course. But for you parents, I think we can agree that the sweetest sound we hear is our baby sleeping soundly. 🔇
There's nothing like the peace you get knowing they are quiet, calm and peaceful. And let's be honest. You feel the same peace not listening to all the questions, the arguing back, the whining.
I digress. 🔇
As a working dad, it's not a sound I hear very often. Most days by the time I drag my boots through the front door, my sweet girl is already fast asleep.
Tonight I came home just as my wife was about to bring up baby's water bottle for bed time. I took it up instead so I could get in one quiet kiss good night. She then asked if I'd sit in the recliner in her room until she went to sleep. (Of course I agreed, duh. I was tired too!) 🔇
Not 5 min later I was being lulled to sleep by the sound of her soft breathing (snoring), and I just had to sit quietly and enjoy being there with her. 🔇
It's moments like these when i remind myself why I choose to start my online business. I'm so tired of missing bed times and daddy/daughter breakfasts and pretend tea times. I miss all those things so I can pay rent. That's really it! I'm not accomplishing anything else by not being home. 🔊
This... is my why. My line in the sand. I'm speaking up. Will you join me in doing the same? 🔊🔊🔊
Drop a "Hell yes" in the comments if you are missing too much of your kids' childhood as well!
