As all parents can probably attest, mornings with a 4 year old are usually frantic swings between moments of pure joy and complete chaos. Laughter followed by fits of rage are the new normal. However, I still love mornings. I love the start of a new day and all the possibility that lies ahead. It's really tough, most of the time, to stop - breathe - and appreciate them for all that they are. So, this was my theme for today. An ode to mornings as a parent. They are special and crazy times that can set the pace for the rest of the day. Treat them well!
