She was the answer to so many prayers.
She is my pride and joy. But, she can also make our home spin into complete chaos, and I admit it, that she gets it honestly.
Fast forward in time and we are now getting prepared for grade 10. (Where does the time go?)
She is an honour roll student.
She is talented and thoughtful.
She is a volunteer and children's leader within our community. Yet, with time and age, nothing has really changed, when it comes to her morning routines.
Emily is still a complete whirlwind dynamo in the morning. Luckily, we have figured out a few techniques to keep the calm in the mornings. I always encourage Emily to have her backpack and school supplies organized and ready to go out the door. She figures out what she is going to wear and we pick out shoes and accessories before she turns in for the night. We also have easy and portable breakfast items, that she can grab on the go. A sit down breakfast is never going to happen with this girl, so getting a good start each morning can be a challenge. But, not when we have tasty drinkable yogurt in our fridge. Emily can grab a YOP as she goes out the door and I can relax a little in knowing that she has had a good start to her day. Yogurt has always been one of our favourite breakfast items. YOP makes it easy to get that yogurt in a convenient way.
Sorry, to say that these coupons were all scooped up quickly. But, be sure to head over to the Life Made Delicious facebook page to stay tuned for more money saving coupons, which are sure to be coming soon.
So, I brace myself for a few rocky mornings as we get back into the school routine in a couple of weeks. Yet, I am going to not take a single one for granted, as I can now see university on the horizon for my extra special teenaged daughter. I know that it is only a couple of years before the whirlwind mornings will become silent, and that makes my eyes mist up, just to type. I can not even imagine!
