At the End of the Day



 
John and I, well, we're like an old married couple at the end of a long day.
 
Slap worn out.
 
Sitting in front of the t.v.
 
Worn out from what, you may ask?
 
Maybe it's from the incessant "mine" argument that ensues over every toy.
 
Or perhaps it's from chasing John all around the house with the yellow school bus.
 
He doesn't laugh, by the way.
 
Or it could be from the thirty minutes of pacing up and down the sidewalk, one behind the other, with the ball popper and stroller.
 
And then again, it could be from throwing a variety of items down the flight of stairs to see which one crashes the loudest.
 
Oh yeah, there's also the defending of the sippy cups that occurs. That can wear on you.
 
Regardless of the reason(s), it's good to know at the end of the day we can enjoy one another's company sitting side by side while resting our tired eyes on the magical screen that promises stillness and silence...even if only for a moment.
