At A Loss

So there we were 
The three of us in the kitchen enjoying a nice lunch together
Peanut butter and jelly and bananas
Nuala and Oscar and me.

I stepped over to admire some of my families magnetic poetry
I remained within 3 feet of my crust munching companions
I smiled while reading my husband's work.

Suddenly the room was quiet
The energy was shifted 
The air was still....

Do you know the great lengths I once traveled to get THIS child asleep?
The hoops I struggled through? 
The stunts I pulled?
Consider me at an official loss for words.

***Just to clarify, I really was standing 3 feet away from her when she decided to start nap time a bit early. The fridge is practically within arms reach of her high chair.....***
