i am not a morning person.

Dear kids,

All of my "the things you should know about me" posts have been pretty serious thus far. And honestly, I could argue that this one is really serious too.

I am not a morning person. 

I say this with all of the kindness and love that I have...I do not conversate until I have a cup of coffee in my system and at least thirty minutes to fully acclimate to being awake. Please take note of this. 

I sure love your father, but he hasn't learned this lesson yet. 

Coffee and then all of the questions. Please.

Love you. Mean it.
