I love that she enjoys having her friends here and they enjoy having been here. It was so loud and buzzy in here when the party was at its most full. From my spot in Emma’s room, reading and writing, all I could hear was the hum of voices coupled with spurts of laughter. I know they watched Monty Python and Pitch Perfect and played a couple games.
Emma’s room has a bathroom attached and through the bathroom there is a door to the pantry and kitchen. I call it “Hazel’s room” because of this, but it also allowed me to hear into the kitchen. Normally I don’t like when people rummage around my kitchen, but last night, I didn’t mind at all. I got to hear quiet giggles and smaller hums of kids who needed a break from the big clump of kids congregating on the sofa, the chairs and the comforter and pillow covered floor.
When you add the sun reaching in through the windows, I want to burst with simple joy.
I can hear the girls waking up now. It is early yet, but they are laughing and talking. Apparently they are discussing snoring sounds.
My fingers move across the keys, glad for each moment.
