Well, one of them napped for two hours, the other two kept right on going. And, honestly, this is not an entirely rare scenario for me (yes, I recognize how extremely blessed I am).
Now, typically when this happens, I either find innumerable stupid things that I think important at that moment to fill the time or I recognize this golden window and actually accomplish things - folding clothes, cleaning up the kitchen, making dinner. Useful things.
But while going about trying to accomplish one of those useful things this afternoon, I found something I had printed for Micaiah over a month ago that I had meant to actually get ready for her so she could play with it. I knew she'd love it. But it was set aside, forgotten about, and, when remembered, set aside again, in favor of a million "useful" things.
Today, though, I realized I had nothing I would rather do than spend an hour cutting out cardstock cats that will probably be partially destroyed or lost in less than the time I put into them. Yes, there is still unfolded laundry in the dryer and, yes, the kitchen counter still needs de-cluttering and, yes, the bathrooms still need cleaning.

420. A little man that can decidedly hear - only two months old and already passing tests with flying colors.
421. Evening plans.
422. A negotiable budget.
423. A calendar filled - with things I want to do.
424. Knowing what's for dinner.
425. Cupcakes (with sprinkles!)
My Life: My Friends
There are many people I could have included in a picture here, but, really, my husband is my best friend. And I love watching him bond with our children, who are also our friends (but not to the point that they get away with things, of course).
