A Sign of Maturity

Last night, Claire & I had a long talk about how a sign of maturity is being able to put your responsibilities ahead of your feelings. We do what needs to be done, because it needs to be done. Doing so with a smile doesn’t mean you enjoy it; it means you’re not willing to give it the power to ruin your day.

I told her that it’s okay to hate the early morning alarms, but it’s not okay to act poorly based on those emotions.

(The photo I posted of yesterday’s First Day of School belies the true mood. *ahem*)

Today’s morning routine was a complete turn-around from yesterday’s debacle. I could tell the amount of energy it took, but she did it, and she did it with a smile.

My baby’s growing up.
