Mommy Mix Tape Vol. 2

So after a fun morning of stealing people's trash yesterday- Lysh and I got to talking (shocker!) about what else?: husbands, children, staying home, being crafty, needing an outlet... And we both came to agreement that thanks to our men's jobs that keep them at work til very late in the evening, we have come to look forward to that quiet time- whether its 10 minutes or 2 hours- after the kids are in bed, before they get home. I always pull my hair up, light some more candles, maybe pour a glass of wine and them put on some Mommy music. I might get on the computer, work on a project, make dinner for Jas or honestly, just sit there. Its a time where no one needs me but me. Its my way to clear my head before Jas gets home and be able to be all there for him when he does. So in honor of 7:30 to 9:00pm, I bring you:

Great advice...great music! And the post below with little-miss-2-year-old is priceless. I love it when people post kiddie pics. Good luck with your little "monkey". : )

I love those quiet hours, too! They recharge me. Great idea w/ your Playlist. I'm a total music dork (don't listen to "cool" music), but I do at least recognize the names of all the artists. That's a start! ;)
