Morning Texts

When I am on opening shift, I leave the house at 4:45 to catch the 5:00 a.m. train into D.C. I try to shower, dress, and slip out of the house as quietly as possible. I don't see the kids before I leave in the morning; they're still sleeping soundly in their bed, warm and cozy.

The first indication I have that anyone is up and about is a "Good morning!" text message from Elise...usually around 7 or 7:30...knowing she is often in the middle of single-handedly wrangling three small children out the door and off to school.

Everyone once in awhile, one of the kids gets their mitts on Elise's iPhone, and I get the following:

I'm uncommonly excited for my unicorn ride later!
