J is often grouchy in the morning. He wasn’t feeling great last night or this morning so we stayed home from church. Now he is doing a little better. He came to lay down with me and said, “can you set your phone timer for five minutes? ” why? “cause that’s the amount of time I’m going to snuggle with you before I go to eat breakfast. ”
Parenting tip: I know he really isn’t feeling well when I say, “okay we’ll stay home but no electronics. ” and he agrees. Works for those times when the symptoms aren’t visible or measurable.
