Morning Ritual

Here is yet another post about mornings in the McMinn home. One of my favorite parts of the day is what happens after my crazy kids and Kev wake up at the crack of dawn. Sitting down and enjoying a delicious breakfast of cold cereals together. I love starting everyday off together (minus months 1-6 of Sophie's life when I was sleep deprived and refused to get out of bed until absolutely necessary).

But that's not all.
Kev's departure to school is always a big production.
It begins with hugs and kisses. Even Sophie has picked up on blowing kisses to dad as soon as he puts his messenger bag on. The farewell is then drawn out to the porch where Ry watches dad from the balcony and yells "I love you, have a good day" from the top of her lungs until Kev disappears into horizon...
Then all the lovey sweet sentiments are over and I battle with Ry for the next 2 hrs. to clean her room.
Of course there are those mornings when the girls are already falling apart that Kev just leaves to the sound of crying, and I think to myself...please, don't leave me (or just take me with you).

That is so cute! And I totally know what you mean about being not getting out of bed until absolutely necessary, which I still do! But the boys HAVE to get hugs and kisses from dad before he leaves for work. So cute!

I love Ry waving in her panties! I'm very glad that it's not only Dillon who hangs out in her panties!
