Do you ever wish someone would post a sign like this somewhere in your home?
I love my kids. (But sometimes they drive me crazy.) I want to hug them and never let them go. (But at times I want to escape.) I want to hear all their stories. (Why aren’t they ever quiet?)
Wouldn’t it be nice if every family home came equipped with some kind of government-mandated sanctuary of peace and quiet for parents? If there was a place we could retreat to where the chaos was blessedly absent, just for a little while? I dream of this place. It would be soundproof. It would have a clean, comfortable couch, with a soft, spit-up-free blanket. It would have unlimited coffee, freshly brewed. It would be self-cleaning. It would have a shelf full of books and a selection of tv shows for mindless escapism. It would be invisible to anyone under the age of 20.
What would your sanctuary be like?
