Laina sprung out of bed and was all, “MOM! Can I make FRIENDSHIP bracelets this morning!?!” and I was all, “No we’re running late, you need to get dressed for school.”
And then she was all foot-stomping-whining, “But Mooooom, I want to make friendship bracelets!!”
And while my first impulse was to raise my voice and be all, “LAINA! We don’t have time for friendship bracelets you need to get ready for school!” instead I let the moment linger.
I appreciate my excited daughter. Always the first to spring out of bed, always looking forward to something. Anything.
When else in life will she ever spring out of bed to make friendship bracelets? Can you imagine, as an adult, feeling that ambitious and happy first thing in the morning?
Eyes Open…FRIENDSHIP BRACELETS YES!
It was a nice moment of recognition. I so appreciate Laina’s enthusiasm and that she has friends at school she wants to make bracelets for.
That was a good moment.
And then I snapped out of it and was all, “No seriously, we don’t have time for that, go ready for school.”
