Peace vs piece~

After a long day at work I was ready to come home, get out of my work clothes, put on something comfortable and relax for a moment before we started our Friday Family Fun night (Bella Notte).

After greeting my family, I went into my bedroom, closing the door behind me. A moment later Bella walked in, "Mommy, what are you doing?"

Me: "just trying to get a moment of peace"

Bella: "I need a piece to"

There was no way I could refuse. Vito joined us and we ended up on the bed with a bowl of popcorn and M&M. We laughed and we singed while watching

The Sound of Music
(our favorite)

Every few minutes Bella would ask "when will Maria find the frog" then it was "when will the children miss Maria?" then "when is the wedding" I would answer "just a few minutes more, (or) just keep watching, (or) it's coming".

Patience is not a virtue that either of us have in abundance!!!

Thinking back on it now~ I never did get my moment of peace, but I sure do love the pieces of moments that were shared.

We moms don't often get quiet moments of peace...but our little ones bring us peace in a different way, right? This is a very sweet post!

have a wonderful day!

It is these small things that are worth no peace at all...

What a great way to spend a Friday night.

Those moments of peace are few and far in between. Somehow, when we do get them, we miss the chaos!

Have a great day!

How sweet. I love when kids get mixed up with the double meaning of some words. So cute!

Oh, what a great evening!! Oakley LOVES The Sound of Music and just about has the entire thing memorized. It's one of our very favorites ... along with popcorn and peanut M&Ms!

Funny-Love movie nights with the kids, especially when they gather on my bed with the assorted snacks =).

Ok, so how do you get your husband to watch Sound of Music? Sounds like a wonderful "peaceful" evening..

I absolutely love this post! I love that Bella said she needed a piece too (just adorable!) and I love that you turned "your" time into a fun family time! What a great memory you made. I'm sure you would never have remembered the few moments of peace, had you taken them.

Oh, I love this movie.....it's such a classic, but I can't get my boys to watch it with me. Each time I try they just say, "awe Mom, isn't there a baseball or football game on that we can watch instead?!!!!!
