Most of what I discover about life with kids are things that wouldn’t surprise any seasoned parent. But I went from zero children to a life instantly integrated with two mobile, verbal, active children, so there are bound to be surprises.
One of the things that I still can’t wrap my mind around is that children who must be convinced to get out of bed at 6:15am on a school day have no trouble bouncing out of bed on a Saturday at 5:30am, wondering where breakfast is and if they can watch TV. Baffling.
A recent Saturday morning with StepMolly and always chatty Yoseph…
Me: “You sure have a lot of words to say already today.”
Y: “Yup. And I’m just getting started.”
And truer words were never spoken.
