I don't have kids....so I don't know if I have a right to have any sort of reaction...haha.

It made me wonder if you were a Happy Mom. While getting out the door was a challenge (daughter dawdled) and I am NOT a morning person (unless of course I stayed up all night).

It does indeed point out the contrasts of 2 different perspectives a la the grass is always greener ... (Typing that makes me miss Erma Bombeck of The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank.)

There probably should have been a comma or a complete sentence in that last post. Ooops.

In all honesty, I'm a TOTAL morning person . . and so are my kids. Reading this made me realize how many people probably hate me. I think she may have written this ABOUT me, well, if she lived here anyway . . .

The balance is . . . everyone here falls apart between 5 and 7:30 . . . when most kids are coming alive, mine are falling into a coma and picking each other until they bleed . . .

You know...I'm just the kind of person NOT to realize it was a link...I thought it was just pretty...and yellow-ish. Reaction: probably vodka..lol IDK..I love the walk to school in the morning. regardless of how much they have driven me crazy throughout the 2 hrs before school. We do devotions in the morning, which is great, except for Moose who insists he is a super hero who has to save us from imaginary foes DURING prayer...and Boyo, who just never stops talking. The walk to school however is awesome. I love to be outside and that affects my mood. It affects my kids mood too and even when we are late, the walk always seems good. Maybe that's her secret :)

First I thought you were asking about her site overall.... I think she has done a brilliant job of marketing and branding.

Then I couldn't stop laughing about the tat of cameltoe hump in the next post down.

Here's the thing. Whether you are a morning person or a night person you always strive to find ways to make things better, easier, simpler and more streamlined. (When you quit doing that... THEN you need the meds... or a long vacation.) What strikes me is.... Why do we think we have to be perfectly charming 100% of the time when parenting? I don't expect that of myself in any other aspect of my life. I don't expect 100% for good hair days or productive work days or even for being a good friend/wife/daughter.... Why 100% for parenting? I believe in the power of saying, "Well, that sucked. Let's have a do-over." And it happens, oh, about once a week in our morning routine. (You will recall I am NOT a morning person in any way.)

What was my point? Can't remember. But Christal's comment made me want to go pin Erma Bombeck quotes. :)

The BoyChild and I have sort of settled into a routine, which consists mostly of us not talking. Not because we are angry or anything but because we're not good morning people. When we do talk, it's usually me saying, "hurry up, we're late!" I do wonder how people like you do it but I assume all that morning happiness does have some kind of payback, like the early evening fall apart.
