Most of you know I'm a very routined person. So, my mornings begin at 5:30 a.m. with a cup of coffee in hand, Bible on my lap, sitting on the couch.
Most of you also know that Emily is an E.A.R.L.Y bird! She has always been one to crash early at night and get up early in the morning. It's worked out fine for our family...we just let her get up at 6 a.m. on school days to do her devotion and then read in her room until 6:30 a.m. Then she can get up to do her morning chores and come down.
Lately, Em wakes up and comes down for a little cuddle before reading...which is a.ok by me....love our quiet little snuggles. As I see her head down the stairs I put my coffee cup on the coaster, my Bible on the next couch cushion over, and wait for her to curl up (mostly...tall girl) on my lap. Some days she's groggy, but most days she smiles brightly, giggles, gives me smooches, and talks incessantly (have no idea where she gets that from? ). The other day she was trying to make me laugh, which wasn't hard when this is what I was looking at. Plus, have YOU ever tried not to laugh when you're supposed to be quiet? Impossible right? HA!
Anyway, this silly girl also had me in stitches last night at dinner. She looked at me and asked, "Hey Mom, Big Bill is in France right?"
Em: "You know, the big clock"
Yep, she meant Big BEN and no, Emily...he's in London! Hahahahahaha!
