There were the sounds of three children laughing, giggling, playing, and talking.
There was the sound of macaroni rattling around which was to be expected given that they were playing in our macaroni sensory bin.
There was the moment early on when I peeked around the corner to see two of the three children actually sitting in the bin together - adorable.
There was the half an hour of completely uninterrupted adult conversation I was able to have with a friend.
There was the sound of three pairs of feet thundering up the stairs as they moved on to another activity.
And then I walked back around that corner and found this...
Totally worth it!
