Now that school is in full swing for Miss C we’ve changed our morning routine. Because I need to arrive at my office, which is about a 9-mile commute from our house, by 8:15 (8:30…cough) I head out the door for school with Miss C around 7:40 and then go to work from there. The hubby, who opens his shop at 9, is on his own with Miss A until he drops her off at daycare.
The hubby usually calls me after he’s dropped Miss A off and we chat about how the morning went with the girls.
He said Miss A was in an unusually good mood this morning and wanted to head on to daycare early. She was wearing a cute teal and fuschia skort outfit that had belonged to Miss C and was quite proud of her “new” clothes. I had fixed her hair before I left and she was wearing her favorite sparkly sandals. On the way to school he said she was singing and smiling from the back seat. She’s not always a happy camper in the mornings, so he noticed her unusually cheerful mood.
“You know you look great today, don’t you Miss A?” he asked, looking at her in the rearview mirror.
And then she chaimed in from the back seat, “Yes Daddy on one condition.” And then she paused and said, “Miss C is beautiful too.”
Lately they fight a lot, but sometimes they pleasantly surprise me. I’ll hang on to those moments forever.
