OK, don’t tell my kids about this post. •
This photo shows a really happy morning in San Diego, but mornings can be so hard. It’s pretty dark here in the morning when everyone is leaving and people are rushing to find things and I usually haven’t done enough grocery shopping so they can make a good lunch. •
Despite our routines and my best efforts sometimes everyone leaves feeling a little bit hurt. So after they leave, I often send everyone a little text letting them know that I love them and they are appreciated. It’s a small thing. But I think it helps. •
And I’m not ashamed about having grumpy mornings, but don’t tell my kids because they all think they are the only one who gets the nice text message. I always want each kid to feel like they are my favorite.
