Half of my family are morning people: Conrad and Grace. They wake up with a smile on thier faces and excited about life. Isabelle and I, the other half, are NOT like these pleasant creatures of the rising sun. And throw the two of us together, add in an alarm clock that didn't go off, and you have a virtual war zone!
So today, I am thankful for my husband, who does much of the managing of Isabelle in the morning. He wakes her up gently, and jokes with her to make her smile and giggle. He sends Grace in to give her kisses and takes time to cuddle with her before starting the morning routine. And he mostly leaves me with our pleasant little morning bird to take care of. I think he's realized it's the best way for ALL of us to have a good start to our days when Mommy works. He takes good care of all of us!
