Tomorrow...

..should start off better than today, because I will be waking up to an ALARM! Something about alarm clocks and stay-home mommies just doesn't seem to mesh. But I guess alarm clocks and homeschool must coincide.

Today the girls rolled out of bed a few minutes before me. I stumbled into the kitchen to find Mary Clare with the fridge opened and ready to pour some orange soda into a cup. She quickly put it back and grabbed the water jug with an embarrassed look, but the morning just went downhill from there. I tried to make things better with a walk to the park but it didn't help much. I was even adventurous enough to trim their hair! But I was still lost in frustration most of the day with continual behavior issues...

Once it was time for ballet this afternoon, things improved and got even better when Daddy got home and we went on a family bike ride! We'll see if the alarm helps me to be in a better mood, and thereby the girls in a better mood ready for another day of fun tomorrow!

It really does help, Blair. Even though it is hard, when I am up early my day is a million times better. Bless you!

I've read it enough... I should really try to do this "get up earlier than the kids" thing!
