A Great Start to the Day

As planned, I dragged myself out of bed at 6:15. Hayley had just gotten up as well. When she was ready for the day, she came into my bathroom where I was curling my hair. (Yes, you read correctly. I did actually curl my hair, but that's a story for another blog post!)

She asked how you curl hair and I offered to curl hers and show her. We spent about 15 minutes, just talking, playing with her hair and truth be told, playing with my hair, too. :)

As 7:11 approached (the time she walks out the door), I said, "This was nice, Sweetie. I really enjoyed talking to you." And you know what she said? "It was nice. I like talking to you, Mom."

Aaaaawwwwww! It's one of those precious moments that don't come around too often once they hit tween-hood.

What a way to put a smile on my face today! I'm trying hard to keep it there as I'm mired in work. (And if you read yesterday's post about me trying to work more hours, I've actually put in 3 hours today and it's only 11am!)
