Most of the time I don’t have thoughts in the morning, except things like:
it’s morning already? or
what day is it? (which is sort of code for hoping that it is somehow Saturday.
My first thought this morning was “what is she doing here?
You may know that we have a stubborn co-sleeper in our house. So this face I see every morning. There are often other faces I see in the morning.
This morning Natalie was in bed with us as well. I don’t know when she came in. I didn’t hear her or feel her climb in. I urged her to get up quickly since I had three stops to make before school this morning and I knew that she had to get out of bed before me so that the co-sleeper stayed sleeping.
Natalie was ignoring me until I reminded her we were getting gas this morning and maybe she could get a donut if she got ready quickly. She said, “You didn’t even ask me why I was in here. I had a dream and it was scary.”
We got on our way this morning and fit in three stops before work. I don’t typically write down my first thought in the day but I paid attention today. I wonder what I will think tomorrow? Perhaps Thank goodness it’s Friday!
What is your first thought in the morning?
