It's 7 a.m. Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

Yup. And I gotta brag! Because this is definitely not our usual routine (which often involves at least one door slam, one “you’re not supposed to be watching TV in the morning,”, and one “Stop telling me what to do!”

Jessie got up at 6 am (in spite of staying up way past 11 last night to watch the MTV awards and Justin Bieber) and was at the computer writing before I even came down. Notice writing and NOT watching videos or old TV shows. She then made herself a healthy breakfast of scrambled eggs (Mom, I learned how to crack eggs from watching the movie Serena, with Audrey Hepburn. Its ALL in the wrist!) and a whole wheat English muffin. Then she unloaded the dishwasher, put the dishes away, and loaded it back up again before going upstairs and putting away her laundry.

I was going to blog about the fear and loathing in my heart as summer approached and we had no real plans for Jess—but I guess we’ll have to wait for that one. For now, I’m going to let myself enjoy this first real day of summer.
