...this is what we were doing.
While it is definitely not conducive to sleepiness and quiet-time, it is definitely good for the heart.
I haven't laughed that hard in months, I'm ashamed to say. It took only a few minutes of swinging a pillow around and laughing hysterically to forget just for a moment that I was a grown-up with a job, responsibilities, and stresses in my life. To forget how stressful bedtime normally is, with the trying to get everyone pajamaed, brushed, washed, and tucked in at the end of a long day.
It was good to forget.
It was better to make those memories.
The boys giggling so hard they can't hold onto their pillows, everyone falling down.
These are the memories to hang on to. This is how bedtime should be.
